Roomie Gifts…

Making a little special “something” for your roomies at convention is traditional.

today I’ll show you what I made for my roomies and later I’ll show you gifts I received.

Here’s one of mine…


“Sweetums” put the handles from the hardware store on for me.mmthen the new Timeless Elegance DSP was used to line the case with a little marker coloring on one of the designs. Mother case straps are Watermelon Wonder with stitching.mmthe postage stamps are retired but fit the project so I used them.

A little initial tag and and some pretty Watermelon Wonder Lace trim are added to personalize the gift.

ill show you the gifts inside in tomorrow’s post. Hope you will stop by.

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…

    • Cindy…the DSP is 7″ x 11″. The straps are 1″ x 11″ with faux stitching done with a journaling pen. The one flower was colored with Watermelon Wonder Marker. The buttons were stamped in Memento Black. Punched with 1″ punch and covered with Crystal Effects. Drill holes for handles bought at hardware. You will need shorter screws than those that come with handle. Ask hardware for assistance for these. The handles can go on either long side…B. Ps… Pictures are on my Facebook page at Rambling Rose Studio.

  2. Lucky ladies!! I’m here too…my first Convention since joining in February. Love your Blog and emails!!!
