Each set included three coordinating items: a monogram tag for the recipient's Convention bag, a mini
- For the corkboards, I used the largest Floral Frames Framelits die to cut a flower out of DSP and out of thin cardboard (I used a cereal box from the recycling bin). Use Mono Multi liquid glue to adhere the DSP to the cardboard so the plain side of the cardboard is showing on the back.
- The buttons are attached to the thumbtacks with Dimensionals.
- I posted instructions for making the magnetic bookmarks in a previous post (April 29, 2012). For these bookmarks I used magnetic discs instead of strips.
- The letters on the tags are covered with two or three layers of Whisper White craft ink and then embossed with Winter White embossing powder.
To package the gifts I put the items in a cellophane bag and added a coordinating ribbon. (And I made sure to pack them in my checked baggage because I wasn't sure they were acceptable in a carry-on.) I think everyone liked their gifts, and I had fun making them. Can't wait to make roommate gifts for the next Convention! Thanks for stopping by!
