Let’s play with paper dolls, shall we?! Victorian era angels and Santa Claus’ were just so dreamy to look at, and I can never seem to get enough of the style! Join me for a small workshop creating a Victorian Christmas Tag Garland with Angels and Santa’s. I provide the graphics and the yummy ledger copies, so you don’t have to hunt for those. They are all neutral color themes, so they’ll work with whatever Christmas color scheme you have in your home. We will also be adding the ever so dreamy Dresden trims to our tags, so they will feel extra glam! I provided a link in the supply list for one of my favorite Etsy vendors. She stocks an incredible variety of trims, gold crowns, gold wings…whatever you like, she’ll have it! Ohhh did I mention we’ll be listening to Christmas music in class? So grab your comfiest pair of pajamas, a hot cup of cocoa and get ready for some Christmas cheer & crafting!
