Spring Crafter’s Escape ~ Gifts

So yesterday I shared a variety of stamping projects that we put together at our very first crafter’s retreat!  I hope you enjoyed the projects, I know I did!  Today I want to share some of the fun little gifts that I made for all of the attendees! 🙂  You can easily create these super simple projects and wow your party guests!  Let’s take a look!

The first gift I gave the ladies was on Friday night!  Those of us that stayed over night at the log cabin received a special little gift that I decorated with the Gingham Designer Series Paper and an adorable little spring flower!  

The gift is actually the Tag a Bag Accessory Pack…all I did was add a bit of designer paper, some ribbon and a little flower.  The flower was cut from one of the flower dies that is retiring at the end of this month.  It was a nice little way to start out the retreat!

The next gift I provided was on Saturday morning.  I wanted to welcome the rest of the ladies to our escape.  Everyone received this beautiful little gift box filled with ribbon!  I loved creating this gift box as I used some of my favorite designer papers…Gold Vellum and Watercolor Wonder!  The little flowers on top of the boxes were made from crepe paper. I simply punched out 4 little pansies, sponged them with crisp cantaloupe, and placed a little gold brad in the middle. Then I just crunched them up into a 3-D flower. The nice thing about the crepe paper is that the flower holds it’s shape once you scrunch it!

The final gift was the “thank you” gift! Of course you know I love to decorate those little chevron bags…and I just loved how these turned out!  Each little gift bag was personalized with everyone’s initials. I used the flower die again and coastal cabana designer paper. I simply cut out the flower pieces, layered them with dimensionals, added a bit of ribbon and their personalized letter.  They turned out wonderful!  Everyone was super excited! Especially since there was a little gift inside the bag! I just love making little surprises for my guests!  

All of these projects are super simple to make! You can find the supplies you need by visiting my Stampin’ Up! website at www.lynndunn.stampinup.net Have fun creating!
