Affectionately Yours Roommate Gift

I spent Friday evening and Saturday in Richmond, Virginia for Stampin’ Up! OnStage.  Yesterday, I received an early copy of the 2017-18 Annual Catalog.  So excited!  It’s one of the perks of being a demonstrator.  Of course I’ve poured over it at least a dozen times already!!  My roommates have both already completed their pre-order!!!  I’ll be picking my new stamps, dies, punches and designer papers today.

Speaking of roommates, we usually make something to give each of our roommates.

I gave these.

They are the Full Size Wood-mount Stamp Cases.

I lined them with Night of Navy cardstock

and then a layer of Affectionately Yours designer paper.

Inside were a small notepad, a pen

and a couple of “emergency” bars. After all,

no one wants to run out for a quick nibble —

you might miss something!

Of course, I had to pretty them up.

A strip of coordinating designer paper was perfect for the notepad.

For the bars, I first put them in 3″ x 6″ Cellophane Bags.

Then, I tied them with 5/8″ Mini Striped Watermelon Wonder ribbon.

Next, I tied on a bow using 1/8″ Gold ribbon with a bit of

Whisper White Pom Pom Trim tucked in.

Finally, the notepad and bars were secured with a bit of Tear and Tape.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my Affectionately Yours Roommate Gifts.

      Thanks! Lisa. I went “good” and “bad” with the bars — a healthy, fruit filled Larabar and a Hershey Cookie Layer Crunch bar for a little late afternoon energy.
