Be Crafty Minneapolis - Christmas Gift Wrap Workshop

Hi there! It’s Jessica here,  sharing a few images from last weekend’s Be Crafty in Minneapolis-a festive afternoon filled with sweet Christmas treats and handmade gift wrap galore.   DSC_0547The extraordinary Melissa at the Faux Martha lavished us with her culinary talents, sharing her cranberry sparkle, no-mess puppy chow, vanilla bean marshmallows (from scratch, of course!), savory chai spiced almonds, and her very famous Christmas in a Cookie. We spread Melissa’s treats out on Amanda’s latest vintage dresser, gussied up with thermoses of winter greens, and added a few hot chocolate spoons into the mix.  It was altogether a feast for all of the senses!  becraftyminneapolisholiday14-03 becraftyminneapolisholiday14-01 becraftyminneapolisholiday14-02 becraftyminneapolisholiday14-04 DSC_0587 becraftyminneapolisholiday14-05Once we got crafting, we  hand painted an assortment of white and kraft gift boxes, canvas bags, and sheets of wrapping paper using brushes, circle sponges, and even q-tips. becraftyminneapolisholiday14-08 becraftyminneapolisholiday14-06 becraftyminneapolisholiday14-10 becraftyminneapolisholiday14-09To top everything off, we created gift tags with watercolored ring stickers and typed messages on a vintage typewriter. We also learned how to dye mini bottle brush Christmas trees, and the secrets of creating the perfect warm fuzzy yarn pom-poms to replace gift bows!   DSC_0684 DSC_0709It was a very merry afternoon at our studio, filled with many creative kindred spirits.  We are excited to announce the next Minneapolis workshop (in time for Valentine’s day) SOON! Stay tuned. DSC_0714 becraftyminneapolisholiday14-07 DSC_0691And a huge thank you to our generous workshop sponsors (clockwise from top) who sent our crafters home with a stash of goodies:
