As a Stampin' UP! demonstrator, I am able to attend group meetings, Leadership meetings & Shoebox swaps. We usually swap cards with other demonstrators so we can go home with some wonderful, new ideas.
Shoebox swaps are so much fun! My upline holds one every quarter & we make 3-D projects. It consists of taking a completed sample of your project (and printed instructions if available) & prepare a packet for each person who will be attending. The packet will have everything in it (except for stamps & ink) with cardstock cut, pre-scored, etc. Then you set up a station for everyone to sit at (we rotate around the stations) and complete your project.
This was Evie's (my upline) project.....isn't it a sweet little hatbox?
She used two Stampin’ UP! clear circle boxes (what our buttons and brads come in) and glued them together with the big glue dots.
Then she covered it with Designer Series Paper and cardstock, embellished it with White Grosgrain Ribbon, Silver Brads (for feet), Rhinestone Brad & Flower Fusion flowers.
