2010 Convention Roommate Gift

Please note: I wrote this post in advance!  I will not have access to my computer while at Convention.  If you have questions for me, please leave me a message and I will respond when I am back home.

It's a Stampin' Up! tradition to give your Convention roommate a little handmade gift.  Here is the gift I made for my roomie, Sally Jercha!

I found the tin in the $1 bins at Target and it is the perfect size for storing the 1/8" ribbons!  (In my local Target, the dollar bins are located at the front of the store.)

To decorate the tin, first I wrapped a band of Concord Crush card stock and Greenhouse Gala Designer Series Paper around the tin and adhered it using Sticky Strip.  The "just for you" sentiment is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set.

Next, I punched out and adhered a 2-3/8" Scallop Circle from Concord Crush card stock and a 1-3/4" Circle from the Greenhouse Gala DSP.

Finally, I stamped a butterfly from the Butterfly Prints stamp set using Concord Crush ink on Very Vanilla card stock and punched it out with the coordinating Butterfly punch.  I adhered it to the DSP circle and voila!  The project was complete!
