"We’ve done frills, we’ve done flowers and now it’s time to add some some masculinity to our projects. Due to popular demand from paper crafters everywhere one of the biggest class requests is for some MANLY projects. This is one class you do not want to miss out on as each page in this project will share various techniques to give many of your future paper crafting projects the masculine touch you so desire. There will be a plethora of various tactile elements incorporated that scream “my guy will love this”! “Manly Mini” is one class you do not want to miss!"
