Friendship Postcard Making Event 1 of 2

Last weekend I helped my crafty BFF Sanam with her Friendship Postcard Making Event at the North Vancouver City Library. This was event one of two. Sanam received a Library Small Grant to cover the cost of the events. The new Library Small Grants program is targeted at promoting connection among North Vancouver City newcomers and long-term residents.

We had about 20 participants.

All ages and skill levels showed up and got crafty with us.

This little guy made 10 DIY cards and LOVED it.

Happy crafters galore.

The front of one completed card...

And the inside. This was my FAV!

More sample projects...

Everyone got super duper crafty and had fun.

This is my initial sample project. I upcycled a cardboard round from Urban Source and used some stamps for the text and hearts. Cute!

I also made a snazzy gift tag from an upcycled laminate sample. This is the front and back - 'follow your bliss'.

This is an upcycled magnet with a snazzy design... I made this for Sanam.

Another one of my DIY cards using a donated piece of origami from my craft renenade.

One very proud crafter...

Here's Mikale from North Vancouver City Library, Sanam and me - Thrifty By Design.

Big thanks to everyone who popped in for some awesome card making and community building. And of course thanks to Sanam and NVCL for making it happen!

Hope to see you at the next Friendship Postcard Making Event on July 30th from 1:30pm to 4:30pm.
