This class includes the major components to making this project – Shellie Geigle’s gypsy wagon #2 pattern that she’s pre-scored and pre-cut out of White cardstock to save you precious time during class. You’ll learn how to assemble your wagon correctly, when to add your paper, getting good fits, and tips during the building process. And, her wagons aren’t just for show, they can hold small mini albums, notepads, flameless candles, and fake plants, just to name a few. You can then decorate the outside and inside of your wagon with miniatures (optional) to fit your paper theme or your style.  Skill Level: Beginner or Experienced Crafter.
