Among the many workshops here at Mrs McGregor’s is cardmaking. Not so much in favour these days, as fabric and sewing have really taken off lately, but with the eye popping cost of most birthday cards it is well worth buying the stash to make your own. You can buy a kit to make one, or an A4 design sheet for £1 that you can squeeze at least 2 cards from, or go mad and buy a whole paper/card stack along with double sided tape and a 50 pack of card blanks.
I run a papercraft class nearly every week, so if you fancy coming along to a workshop they are only a tenner each, or pop in and choose your own bits and bobs to get cracking and save yourself a fortune. (Plasters for papercuts can be provided)!
