Convention Swaps 2

Today’s the day! Off to Convention, so just a quick post to show you my other set of swaps. These are that old favourite: Elizabeth Shaw after-dinner mints, which fit perfectly inside these little favours made from the Two Tags die. I LOVE this die – it has so many possibilities!

All I’ve done is score the bookmark shape at 3.5cm and 5cm from the short end and fold it up. The chocolate is taped inside using sticky strip.

And isn’t it clever that the Scallop Circle Punch fits so perfectly inside the top of the bookmark? Stampin’ Up!® are so good at that sort of thing – it definitely won’t be merely a happy accident.

All these are different colours as I was using up some scraps of cardstock, and it made the job less repetitive for me. I will list some of the colours used, but don’t hold me to them!

Stamps: Just Believe
Cardstock: Pretty in Pink, Rose Red, Elegant Eggplant, Old Olive, Whisper White, So Saffron, Perfect Plum, Melon Mambo
Ink: Melon Mambo, Elegant Eggplant, Rose Red
Accessories: 1 3/8” circle punch, scallop circle punch, Two Tags Die, Big Shot, Word Window Punch, Modern Label Punch

All products by Stampin’ Up!®
