We anticipate this class to sell out fast since Ginger has already started promoting.

We thank you for participating in virtual classes with The Paper Forest and other instructors throughout the pandemic. Paper crafting is not just a hobby. It brings people together with similar interests where we can be creative, inspire others and be inspired. Without your support, many independent retailers (us included) would not be able to survive during these uncertain times. We are in this together and will continue to provide unique and fun ways to collaborate until we can, one day, gather again.
