Card & Cuppa for Children – Bonanza Buddies

During this half-term holiday, I held one of my Card & Cuppa for Children classes and here is the project the young crafters made.

I decided to use the fun Bonanza Buddies Stamp Set and Dies Bundle.

There are several steps to this project as I teach the class in a round robin format. Then, when everyone has completed each step, we put everything together as a group at the same time.

Mango Melody and Coastal Cabana are my main colours, with Grapefruit Grove and Daffodil Delight as accents.

For the cute koala, it’s Smoky Slate and Basic Gray.

Timeless Tulips Stamp Set provides the sentiment that is stamped in Gray Granite.

Bonanza Buddies has some fun characters and as we’d already created a lion project at a previous Card & Cuppa for Children class, I chose the koala.

Shapes were punched using the Scallop Circle, Detailed Trio and Classic Label punches.

The banners were attached using Glue Dots – a lot easier than trying to use SNAIL on them.

Then we added the scallop circle and the presents, before adding the koala and his fun party hat.

Finally, the sentiment sits on the join of two of the presents to make it look like a large gift.

I’ve got more Card & Cuppa for Children classes planned for Easter, Whitsun and the Summer Holidays.

Happy crafting
