Today is the day!! Stampin’ Up’s annual Convention begins at 5p and I am so excited!! One of the best parts of this event is seeing my amazing stamping friends. Traditionally, roommate gifts are given and it is fun to conjure up what to make. Since we all are given the same bag (can’t wait to see it), bag tags are always a big hit. I thought it would be fun to create monograms for them. Hint: I used a variation of this idea for one of my Artisan projects!!
I took some basic wooden letters that come from the craft store and painted them white. Then I layered on the Gingham Garden Washi Tape. Just leave the edges hanging at first. Once the letter is covered, use an exacto knife to trim around the edges. This is a remarkably quick project once you get the hang of it! To add to the durability of this, I put on a couple of layers of Modge Podge. Once dry all I had to do was add the Rose Red Seam Binding. I think they are really cute and I hope they like them! The “B” is for my immediate upline Brandi and the “L” is for my second level upline Lisa Curcio. They have both been such amazing supporters of my work so it was fun to make a little something for them (Lisa isn’t a roommate but she “needs” one!)!!
I kept the rest simple. These fun retro mason jars were too cute to pass up! I stuffed them full of Convention supplies and just tied on some Island Indigo Chevron Ribbon. Hopefully they will be able to use these jars in their craft rooms. I love them for holding all kinds of things!
Ok, that is it for today. If you have any extra questions about the tags, just let me know. I’ll be back on Saturday with the card I made for the Artisan Finalist Swap. Think Christmas and watercoloring!! Thanks so much for stopping in today. See you again soon!
