Fridge cards in snowy Birmingham

I have a spare five minutes and just must update my blog.....I have been busy and away a lot during the past couple of months. From heavy rain in California to snowy Birmingham.
Had a great three days demonstrating on the Woodware stand at the trade show and saw lots of wonderful Woodware customers. There were five of us demonstrating and we each did a make and take too.
My first make and take were these little 'fridge cards' I designed especially for the show. I'm making them at The Glitter Pot this Friday the 5th March and demonstrating them at The Art of Craft in Farnborough on Saturday 6th March if anybody would like to join us please come along. They are such fun little things to make and great to stick on your fridge as a little surprise for that birthday person.
The ones here are only about 6cm square which I think adds to their appeal. You need a piece of 6cm square card, a piece of patterned paper 10cm square and some wadding (the type you would use for quilting. Layer all these together and wrap the paper around the back of the card. Decorate as you wish....oh, and don't forget to add any brads to the paper before you layer up! Add ribbon and stick a piece of magnate (Woodware do A4 sheets of it now) on the back to hold everything in place.
Stick to the fridge and admire.
