This year at the Stampin’ Up! Convention Make & Takes were just ONE of the many activities we could choose from to do. Since I usually get frazzled at Make & Takes, I chose to do mine at home and partake of the other demonstrations and things going on, as well as taking pictures of the display boards.
We always get stamp sets at Convention with which to do the Make & Takes. This year we received the “Hello, Lovely” Stamp Set, Gorgeous Grunge, and the Ronald McDonald set, Tag It. With each purchase of the Tag It stamp set, Stampin’ Up! donates $3 to the Ronald McDonald House Charities.
Here are the packets we received with all the materials to make the projects!
And here are the projects completed!
You can trim and score the Tag a Bag Gift Bags in order to make them stand up rather than just be flat. This one has a tag made from the Tag It stamp set and the Tag a Bag Accessory Kit plus some of the new Coastal Cabana Ruffle Stretch Trim. You can make lots of cute little gift bags with these tags and bags and buy them as a bundle.
This was a fun card made with the Hello Lovely Stamp Set plus the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set. The Gorgeous Grunge stamp set reminds me of the stamp set we had long ago, I think it was called “Itty Bitty” – something. It was very handy for just adding a bit of texture or interest when you needed it. This card and envelope also has a bit of Epic Day Washi Tape on them. And the little Baker’s Twine thread in the Vintage Button was dyed by holding the twine down on the ink pad with a piece of sponge and then pulling the twine through. Not sure I would want to bother doing this very often, but if you need a certain color, you can do that.
And here are several note cards and envelopes that go in the cute gift bag.
And here’s an easy box to make with the Tag a Bag Gift Box.
These boxes are going to be so good to keep on hand for those little gifts and things when you need something special.
