I taught my first class at the Glitter Pot on Saturday. Thanks to the lovely group of ladies who attended, my nerves melted away very quickly, and I really enjoyed it!

This is the card that we made in the morning. I have seen this type of card all over the internet, but have designed my own template sizing for the pot, and design of top to put the flowers on - I wanted to be able to fit more on! Also, I thought it would be handy for it to fit inside a 6" x 6" box envelope.

As you can see, some of the flowers are attached to the pot, and some on the slide out part.

Here you can see the back of the pot, which shows the top that I designed. It's very simple to do - I'll put up the templates tomorrow.

ETA: Of course, I didn't get round to the template as soon as I'd hoped! But it's up now, and you'll find it here. I've also put up instructions on how to make the flowers here.
