Brisbane: Upcycled Christmas Cards

At Brown Owls we love upcycling so we're very excited to have Felicity from Bearly There Creations generously donating her time and showing us how to upcycle aluminium cans into fun and interesting Christmas cards and decorations! 

Felicity will show how to cut down cans safely, create your own designs by hand embossing and a little cheating by using commercial embossing plates to make decorations. Each participant should leave with at least 1 card and 1 decoration, or more, as its highly addictive. 

If time allows Felicity will demonstrate colouring methods as well, using alcohol inks and pens.

When: Saturday 30 November, 10:30am-12:30pm

Where: Carindale Library, Westfield Carindale, 1151 Creek Road, Carindale 

What to bring:
- Aluminium cans, they come  in interesting colours and shapes these days, bring some favourites along to play with!
- Old scissors (not your good dressmaking or fabric ones)
- An old ball point pen for embossing

RSVP: This meet up is now fully booked however to be included on the waiting list email
