I got back late last night from my trip so I have a quick post for you.  At my downline meeting last month I asked a couple of people to bring Make&Take projects and I wanted to share those with you.

Joyce shared this cute pencil project that she found somewhere – she was making them for a friend and prepped enough for our meeting. The inside is ROLO candy we wrapped them with just a piece of paper and taped it to hold them in roll.  I forgot why we couldn’t just use the rerolled candy – but she had a reason for it.  Then we made the outside pencil part with So Saffron card stock – we scalloped one edge and then scored in between all the scallops to create the look of a pencil.  If you want to add writing or something to the edge of the pencil do that before attaching it around the candy.  We added a kiss in the end for the point.  At the other end we wrapped a piece of pink card stock and then foil.  And we added a piece of pink at the very end to finish off the eraser.

Lisa showed us all how to make these flowers.  This is my green one.  She showed us several different ones that she made including one that was on her shirt – everyone thought she bought it at the store that way!

We used the Big Shot to cut the fabric – mine uses the Circles #2 Die but other people used the scalloped circles.  We saw these same kind of flowers at convention.  But I had forgotten about them.  You cut a bunch of layers of fabric, layer them and stitch together in the center.  The more layers the fuller the flower.  Then use the heat tool to heat the fabric until it curls.  So you need to use a synthetic fabric – like a sating slippery fabric so that it will curl when you heat it.  I didn’t do it on mine but you can add in something on the center like a button or brad.  And then add a pin to the back so you can pin it to your top.

The other two projects we made were my Birthday Bakery card – see it HERE

and the Got Treats? skinny bags – see those HERE

We had a wonderful time at the meeting.  The next one is in November and if you are a demonstrator that lives near me you are invited to join me.  Just email me for more information.
