Convention Friend Gifts

The Stampin'Up Convention is always so much fun for me.  I get to see so many new ideas and gather tons of information, but the best part is spending time with friends. Some of these friends I only get to see at convention, so I always like to make them something special.  This what I came up with this year.  The card layout is the same as the last post, but this time I used fabric to create one of the background and the flower.  The flowers is super fun to create and I used the Big Shot to help me do it.  The best part is the flower comes off, so you can clip it anywhere....maybe even in your hair!  If you want to see how to make the flower and card, I got the idea from Jill Olsen.  Visit her blog to watch a step by step video.  I think this would be a fun card to do at camp as well.....what do you think?

The little goodie bag was created using these great little bags I found at a bakery that was going out of business.
I decorated the out side with paper and fabric then stamped a greeting on the see through window using white Stazon ink.  The came the fun part...filling each bag with goodies.  My friend/convention room mate loves to sew, so I made a matching fabric pin cushion.  My other two friends love chocolate, so there bags were filled with yummy chocolate.  I can't wait to get to convention and give them there gifts!

  1. Conventions gifts are the best, whether they come from Stampin' Up!, or a friend! These would both be so much fun to receive, I could picture myself squealing in the convention center as you hand me one ;). I really wish I could be there with you!
