Roomate Gifts cont.~

This is basically the easiest gift I made. It's a big canister of Tootsie Rolls that I wrapped in Candy Cane DSP. That's it. I added some Real Red strips of card stock at the top and bottom because the canister looked unfinished without it for some reason. I stamped out the sentiment from Candy Cane stamp set, punched it out with the retired 2 1/2" circle punch and adhered it to the Real Red banner that I flagged with the Triple Banner Punch. I added two Early Expresso hearts to it using the Owl Builder Punch.
 Sorry that the quality of this photo is not so good. I took them at night (almost forgot to get pics of them at all that is why I took them at night). This is a Clear Tiny Treat Box that I wrapped Candy Cane DSP inside and added some chocolate inside. I threaded some Kraft Rope through the lid and made it so that you could make them into ornaments or decorations to hang. Again, using the same stamp set as above, finished off the box.

And this one is an "origami" treat holder. Just folded and folded. Easy peasey- I found the chocolate penquin at our local dollar store and thought he'd be cute sticking out of this.  I always have fun making gifts to give away. I have my first vendor show in 4 years coming up, so I will be working really hard here soon to get MORE lovely things put together for that. Can't wait to play! Hope you have a super weekend. I will be back Monday with some other things to post. Thanks for stopping!

More Gift ideas~

 So, as I said in my previous post, I made roommate gifts to give when I traveled this past weekend to Kansas City for Onstage for SU!  I posted the group of gifts yesterday and today, I wanted to share them individually so that you know what they are. This first one is a package of microwave popcorn. All it is a piece of Early Expresso Card Stock with a piece of Candy Cane DSP glued to it and then wrapped around the bag of popcorn. I stamped out a tag and tied it on with the Candy Cane Baker's Twine.
 This little gem is exactly that.  Now, before I went to OnStage, I thought Tic Tacs could NOT get any smaller. Was I wrong....This is a Tic Tac Slider box.  EASY PEASY to make. I stamped with my sponge daubers in Soft Suede onto Crumb Cake card stock and then wrapped it around the Tic Tag box to get some score lines and glued it together. Then I wrapped a piece of Tip Top Taupe robbin around the Tic Tac box and tied it at the top with more baker's twine and dropped it down into the card stock box. Viola!
Here it is with the Tic Tacs pulled completely out. I stamped the sentiment from the stamp set Cookie Cutter Christmas and stuck it to the front over a Real Red Large heart.

Stampin' Up! OnStage-Kansas City

Wow~ What a weekend! This past weekend I traveled to Kansas City for OnStage for Stampin' Up! and wanted to post all the things that I made for my roomie and my friend who wasn't able to room with us but met up with me for the convention.

I will show you one or two a day because there is a lot of photos to share. This one is a bottle of sparkling apple cider with a tag that I made using the Cheerful Tags and Framelits. If you don't have this bundle, you NEED it! These tags are so easy to make and so quick!
I used Gold Satin Ribbon to loop it around the neck of the bottle.
