Floral Framelits Convention Gifts

When Convention rolls around, I start thinking about Convention Gifts and what to make for my roommate and some special friends and Create with Connie and Mary designers who attend!  I saw a project done with wristlet key chains on Pinterest…but…it required sewing!  While I can sew a little and have made valances and pillows, it isn't my favorite past-time…I'd rather be stamping!  So…I hired a good friend and fellow demo, Mindy Gray, to make some of these up for me!  I love how they turned out in Stampin' Up!'s pretty Summer Smooches fabric!

 

 

Of course…I did have to package them up pretty!  I used the Floral Frames Framelits and made up some toppers. 

  1. I used one of the larger flowers and Lucky Limeade, then scored it in half to make the "leaves" and the actual topper that fit over the cello bag.
  2. The large thin cello bags are pretzel bags. 
  3. I cut flowers from Real Red cardstock (run thru the Big Shot with the Chevron Folder), Summer Smooches Designer Paper, and Tempting Turquoise cardstock
  4. I added a Vintage Faceted Designer Button in the center with a green Glimmer Brad to hold all the layers.
  5. I tucked in the For You greeting from Itty Bitty Banners, stamped with Basic Black on Whisper White.

 

 

I thought they turned out really cute!  AND…I have a few of these left!  SOOOOO…I'm giving away one to anyone that signs up with Stampin' Up! on my Inkspired Treasures team, along with a couple things I picked up at Convention! 

With a $99 Starter Kit Special AND a darling FREE Howl-o-ween Printer’s Tray project kit starting August 1st…why wait?  Email me for MORE DETAILS!


 

Hope you have a wonderful day!

These are super cute! On the wristlet keychain, is that a fabric flower with a button that was sewn on too? I was googling how to make these wristlet keychains and found some stuff, but didn't see ones with how to make the flower part, which I love! Thanks for sharing this!
