A Creative Day with Southern Elle Style

I consider myself pretty crafty. Well, I did until I attended a Valentine Class at Paper Source – Northpark!
Last weekend, I kicked off the month of February by attending a crafting class with the Dallas Tri Delta Alumni Association and it did not disappoint! 

Paper Source gives you the opportunity to host private parties, so a group of 10 of us gathered around a table with some sweets and treats to learn how to make fabulous valentine cards. 

Our lovely leader then walked us through several demonstrations that we would be utilizing during our session. To name a few, we learned how to line an envelope, use a tape runner, emboss, make stickers, and even how to make an origami heart!

My favorite skill to learn was embossing. It is such a pretty way to decorate cards and invitations, and this way it doesn’t cost you a fortune. There’s even a way that you emboss your very own handwriting!

The great thing about Paper Source is that not only do they teach you skills that most people pay top dollar for someone else to do, but they also provide all the necessary products at a price that won’t break the bank! I thoroughly enjoyed the class and would go back to take another.

Check out Paper Source online here and learn more about private parties here.

Have fun!
