Every year, I try to make some fun gifts for the ladies in group attending convention! I always do some sort of notebook--so they can takes lots of notes!! This year, I decided to sew the notebook covers--not sure why! I am NOT a seamstress by any stretch of the imagination!! But, I set my mind to it, and even though it took me FOREVER to do, here they are:
I used several different fabrics--but all Stampin' Up! fabrics! They really are pretty! Oh, before you ask, I purchased the tutorial for the notepad cover HERE.
Here is the inside of one:
In addition to the notepads, I also made them these little bags--I included things like a highlighter, sugarfree gum, tic tacs, flavor packs for their water and of course, chocolate! Just some fun little things.
I found the instructions for this bag on LeeAnn's blog. It's really simple to make--if I can do it, so can you!!
Here's a close up of one of the bags:
And the Tic Tac Container:
4 3/4" x 3", scored at 2" & 2 3/4". Pretty simple! I used Glue Dots to adhere the tic tac box to the back of the container! Added the image from MDS, and a ribbon! Viola! Easy Peasy!
And, I always try to do a tag for their convention bags--everyone gets the same bag for convention, so this helps identify your own! This is the front--the back is the red/white polka dot pattern (from the Summer Smooches Designer Paper) with their name and address:
This is another swap I did for my Up-upline's group. There were 15 of us, so I decided to make these lanyards. The group name is "Got Stamps?", so I was going for a cow print! (Stampin' Up! fabrics aren't long enough for this project).
The tutorial for the lanyards can be found HERE.
Hope you've enjoyed these gifts! Sorry for such a long post!! :-) Enjoy the rest of your week!
