Swap at Convention!!
Sketch Frenzy Friday!

Convention Gifts!! (lots of pics!)

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:

Now, I didn't come up with this idea--they are everywhere!  But, here are the measurements I used: 

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!
