Shoe Box Swap

We're off to Cincinnati on Friday for our Stampin' Up! Regional Seminar! It's kind of like a mini Convention - there will be presentations, product demonstrations, display boards, make and takes. One of the fun things the Sparklers will be doing is what is called a Shoe Box swap. Each person designs a card or project and prepares all of the supplies for it for each person. Then we sit around a table and pass the boxes around and make the project in each box. I thought would share my Shoe Box swap with you.

Supplies used: Night of Navy, Whisper White and Brushed Silver card stock, Night of Navy Classic Ink, Platinum Shimmer Paint (Holiday Mini), Serene Snowflake and Four the Holidays (both from the Holiday Mini), Rhinestone brad, Stampin Dimensionals and the Eyelet Border Punch.

Kim Peck demonstrated this fun technique several months ago. Take a 2 5/8' x 2 5/8" piece of card stock and center the Eyelet Punch on each side of the square. This will leave you 2 pieces - the frame and the center piece. Use them separately or together!

I applied the Shimmer Paint to the snowflake stamp with a dauber.
