Stampin' Up! Inspire Create Share Convention Blog Hop

Thank you for joining The Crazy Crafters team for our blog hop.  I was one of the 12 Crazy Crafters to attend the Stampin' Up! Inspire Create Share Convention up on the Gold Coast last week. 

This is the 4th Stampin' Up! Convention I have attended and the experience always stays in my memory for a long time afterwards.  Imagine 700-800 ladies (& a few men) from all over Australia and New Zealand with the same passion and love for paper craft in the same location for 3 days.  There are a lot of happy faces, laughter and a buzz of excitement.  

 Some attendees choose to make a Convention swap.  This is a card front or 3D Project that an attendee will make and swap with another attendee that has also made a card or 3D Project.  This year I didn't have the time to make swaps, instead I made a Convention gift for my fellow Crazy Crafters - Tic Tac Gift Boxes.

Colours from L->R Blackberry Bliss, Melon Mambo, Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral, Crisp Cantaloupe, Coastal Cabana & Crumb Cake

The stamped image is from the You Little Furball stamp set and being a cat lover, is one of my favourite stamp sets.  The colours were chosen by the Crazy Crafters as their favourite current Stampin' Up! colour.

To keep the Tic Tac Box closed, I made a belly band in Basic Black & a punch flower from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack adorned with a Basic Rhinestone Jewell, which slips off to reveal the inside.

To add some Fun to the Tic Tac Gift Box design, I included the same stamped image upside down on the inside panel.  Very cute if I say so myself.  To keep the Tic Tacs in place, I wrapped a strip of Basic Black card stock around the Tic Tacs and adhered it to the back panel with some Sticky Strip.  The Tic Tac box slides out for consumption, yum yum and once gone can be replaced with another full Tic Tac Box! 

A personalised touch was added to the Tic Tac Gift Box design with a handwritten note on the back to say it was from me.

I hope you have enjoyed my Project and I would love for you to leave a comment.
