Eeekkk… I feel so special to share a tutorial on the Charity Wings blog with you! Best of all, there’s step by step instructions to create not (1)… not (2)… but (3) DIY Projects! And… a GIVEAWAY! Be sure to visit the Charity Wings blog and leave a comment to win a DIY Kit & DIY Project from Embellish Creative Designs.
I was introduced to Charity Wings (formerly Scrapbook Royalty) several years ago when I participated in the Survivor Crop, a charity event to raise money the Susan G. Komen Foundation. Then, I’ve learned more about their work when I joined the team to provide live streaming video from CHA Chicago. I had a blast with the Charity Wings girls! The Charity Wings mission is to help artists and crafters fundraise for their favorite charities. How cool is that? Be sure to check out what they are all about and how you can get involved! Their exciting work is made possible by great volunteers and supporters in the crafting community.
Here is a sneak peek of what you will see over on Charity Wings! Enjoy!
