Treasure Box: Memories to Remember

Next weekend, I get to make another trip to Oklahoma City. I really look forward to these trips, getting to visit with creative friends who I know "get" me, and just enjoying the area overall.  I'll be teaching two different classes over the weekend. One of the classes is a soldered box and I've named the course "Treasure Box".  The second class I'm teaching will be posted soon!

Last spring, as my friends were planning weddings and their children's graduation parties, I thought it would be really nice to have a special, handmade box for them to display their memories. I envisioned dried bridal bouquets with a special wedding photo or a graduate with their caps tassel and a special family photo. Way back then, I started working on cutting the glass (SO not my favorite thing to do. It's closer to the absolute bottom of the list.) and figuring out the size that I thought would be the most versatile. Almost a year later, I've soldered a few boxes for friends and am thrilled to share this class with my Paper Crown friends.

I think this really might be my favorite class yet!

Treasure Box: Memories to Remember

Memories are made to be remembered and seen forever. This special soldered Treasure Box was designed to dimensionally display your special memories, whether they be of your sweet family, weddings, or graduations. In this 2.5 hour class, we will construct this glass box, solder its seams for posterity, create a hinged lid (so that you can change out your memory display whenever the mood strikes), solder on decorative feet and a piece of sparkle to the front.

All supplies will be provided except for the following list that each student will need to bring with them:

  • Soldering Station (tile/work space, soldering iron, stand, lead-free solder, flux, flux brush, clamps, bent nosed hemostats, & sharpie)
  • Scissors
  • Wet & Dry Adhesive
  • Pencil
  • Paper Trimmer
  • Your favorite paper crafting “must-have’s”

Class will be Saturday, March 24th 11am – 2pm and the fee for this class is $70.00. Call Cindy, the amazing proprietress at Paper Crown a call at 405-848-2389 to register!  I hope to see you soon!
