I had my first big shot club meeting this past Thursday. It was a good turn out. We made three projects using the big shot. Here are two of the items. Number 1 picture is an Owl Goody Bag and Number 2 is an Ice Cream Cone gift tag with a recipe card sandwhiched inbetween for the popcorn treats that went inside the bag. If you would like to join the club and are in the area let me know or if you would like to join the club but are not in the area we can do that also. How it will work for non- local members. If you would like to join the club via mail. You can join and send your check for each of the months and we will do your make and takes and mail them to you for free as well as a contract that you can send it back before the 2nd month.
