A Few Rules for Classes!!!

***Please bring a basic tool kit to all classes***
(scissors, adhesive and paper trimmer)
Don't forget to check your class supply list.

*On the day of class you receive 15% off all purchases!

*To reserve your space in class you must make a 50% deposit to hold your space. Balance due one week before the class. Payment may be made at Paper Tales or over the phone with your credit card. Advance deposit/payment could make the difference between holding or canceling a class by ensuring we have enough attendees!

**Some class fees are non-refundable and if you have paid and cannot attend, you will receive a kit. Non-refundable classes are noted with *non-refundable*

*For all other classes there is no refund of a class fee for
cancellation with less than 72 hours notice before the class begins. If your space can be resold we will then give you a refund. Instructors prepare in advance for classes and still must be paid. If Paper Tales cancels a class we will issue you a full refund.
