July Projects

Happy Fourth of July to all those patriotic crafters out there! Since it's still just the beginning of July, I thought I would fill everyone in on some of the projects that we're demonstrating this month at Enchanted Lake Ben Franklin. You can always find out about our in store demonstrations by checking out our online calendars, or just giving the stores a call.

Paper Blossoms Demonstration

You can learn how to make this beautiful rose out of scrapbooking paper in our Paper Blossoms demonstration. The flowers are made by punching out petal shapes from paper, shaping the petals, and then arranging all of the layers together to form a rose. They look great on cards, gifts, and vintage projects.

Quick Links

This demonstration will walk you through making beautiful jewelry using these super easy Quick Links metal shapes. Because Quick Links have special connectors, you don't need any prior beading knowledge to make a simple bracelet. For a more complicated design like the earrings shown here, just some simple wire wrapping knowledge is needed.

Summer Fun Easel Card

This standing easel card may look difficult to do, but it only takes about 10 minutes to make. The demonstration will take you through each step and help you to put your own spin on this card.

Those are just some of the projects we're working on right now in our stores. If you want to learn more, please come and see us, we're always happy to help.

Also, don't forget about Lollipop Day coming up this month, July 20th, at Enchanted Lake Ben Franklin.

Thanks for reading!
