Here’s a pic of the cards we made in the October 2012 Kathy’s Handmade Card Class. Kits are still available.
My next classes will be:

We will be making a vintage Christmas card, a subway art Christmas card, and two other Christmas cards. You can pay for a class or kit by going to “Pages” at the right and clicking on “Pay for Classes and Kits”
Hope to see you soon!
Things you will need:
- Tear a sheet of black construction paper into about a dozen small rectangles that measure roughly 1¼ inch by ½ inch. Use a hole punch to add two eyes to each piece.
- Brush a portion of a plain, glass votive holder with Mod Podge, affix a paper rectangle, and then paint more Mod Podge over it. Add the other pieces the same way, making sure the edges overlap.
- When the candleholder is dry, use a tiny paintbrush and black paint to add little round pupils inside the eyes.

take wing as a bat mobile — tape several to pieces of monofilament and string
them from a small branch.
