Happy Spring! And I hope you all had a blessed Easter holiday! He IS Risen!!

Last post I promised to show you the rest of the projects we’ll be making for Mothers Day Treats, at my class on April 23rd at Wildflower Nursery & Gifts in Penn Valley, CA. Take a look!!

This fun little pocket card is all cut in one piece from a die I’ve had for several years. You fold it accordian style on the score lines, to form the pockets.

The bottom pocket has a cute little tag in it, tied with my “signature” silk ribbon, making a great place to write a greeting. Then the top pocket has another flat piece of pretty cardstock, and taped to the back of that piece, is a packet of flower seeds to plant in your garden of real flowers!

Then here’s the real “heart” of these treats . . . the lovely folio card! This is a pretty involved project and I will have quite a bit of the basic construction of the piece done for the class. That’s the part that is time consuming, so in the class you’ll have time to do all the decorating of the folio.

There’s a “belly band” that goes all the way around the folio to hold it shut. I used a gorgeous metal butterfly from my stash glued to a vintage doily, also from my stash, to adorn the belly band, along with a couple of cute fussy cut flowers from the beautiful papers we’re using for all the projects. (the papers are “Raspberry Garden” from the Lemoncraft Company.)
When you open the folio, you’ll discover the little treats in the bottom pocket! Each folio will have 2 different teas, a honey stick for your tea, an instant coffee tube for those who don’t like tea, a wrapped sweet wafer biscuit, a Ghiradelli chocolate square, and a sweet little vintage spoon from my stash.

Completely opening the folio also reveals the items in the top pocket. There’s a small decorated card that’s another place to write a message or add a photo. Then a larger card behind the first card, holds more space for messages, photos, or perhaps attaching a gift card .. . it’s all up to you! This pocket would also be a good place to tuck the envelope that holds the beautiful butterfly gift card holder, that’s one of the other projects I showed you last week . .. the pocket has plenty of space for that!

I hope you’ve enjoyed this little “tour” through our Mothers Day treats. I’m looking forward to making these treasures with several of you on April 23rd at Wildflower. Remember, you must call or email me with your registration and class fee of $35, by Saturday, April 20th, to hold your spot! If you have any questions please call me! (916) 217-6865. Have a great weekend! Janice
