Punch Paper Giveaway

Are you in the mood for a giveaway? ARE YOU?

As The Citizen's Forum of the 1860s approaches, we are busier than ever. Whether it's fine-tuning a presentation, making copies, or putting together the museum area, most of the work for a conference happens months before the first class begins. I may show a cool, collected exterior, but the inside of my mind is a map of a hundred things at once.

And thus the Conference Positivity Board was born!

But I don't want you all to think we're not thinking of you during these long winter months. So I'm doing a giveaway, something simple, to give you a chance to interact with us! 
And who doesn't like free stuff? 

In honor of the FREE workshop I will be doing on punch paper, I will be offering a few of the pieces from my reproduction collection. They're beautiful, and I've been hoarding them. They need to see the light of day! Here's what's up for grabs:

Prize #1

Based on an original pattern from Godey's Lady's Book, 1861, this watchpocket is made with perforated paper, glass beads, embroidery floss, and silk ribbon. It's an adorable little reproduction, that can actually hold a small watch!

Prize #2

The July 1860 issue of Godey's Lady's Book featured this delightful little glove box made up with perforated paper and beads. The directions indicated that one could make a handkerchief box as well. This box is perfect for earbobs or small important things that need a spot. It's such a pretty teal too!

Prize #3

Full color illustrations include the history of punch paper, motifs, and patterns to reproduce. I may even sneak in a piece of punch paper for you to give one a try! I'm clever like that sometimes...

So in order to put in an entry, just follow the Rafflecopter below. It's simple and easy! It links to let us know that a person has shared an event, and picks based on those entries. Let us know if you need help filling any part out, and good luck! The giveaway ends January 16th, and I will announce the winners then.
