Index Card Rings and Awesome Specials This Week!

These were for a few friends at convention - just a little sumthin' to share. 
 
 
I made these with regular old index cards.  Cut them into 2" x 3" strips (these were 3" x 5" index cards) you have a little left over for something else.  I put about 20-25 pages in each ring.  Punch them all with the Scallop Tag Topper Punch and decorate the cover.  Easy Peasy!

Clipboard Gifts

We have a new Michaels here in Boise and I found these really ugly (sorry!) clipboard in the $1 section.  They were bright orange but the notepad paper on them was SO cute!!! 
So...I fixed them! 
I used some of our Typeset Specialty Designer Series Paper, Filter Paper to make some flowers, a little Subtles Designer Series Paper plus Seam Binding Ribbon to tie them together with a beautiful Brighton Pen.  How there is a nice little gift!, don't you think?
 

 
I made the yellow notepad for Lorri Heiling along with a big bag of Runts - her favorite candy.  This should last her a couple days!  Ha!  I used the 6 x 8 cello bag on the bottom, the 4 x 6 cello bag in the middle and the discontinued smaller bag on top.  Stapled them all together and made a cute baggie topper.

BFF Gifts - Glitter Mini Muslin Bags

Convention is one of my favorite times of the year because I get to see my BF.  She lives in Montana so convention is a special time we get to share together.

 
I made her a few fun pillow gifts!  By now she has seen them so I can show you. *Ü*
 I used the Mini Muslin Bags, taped off the bottom, painted them with Mod Podge, sprinkled with gold glitter and let them dry.  I peeled off the tape then put a second coat of Mod Podge on to seal the glitter from flaking after it was dry.  I actually did it the next day.  It only took about an hour for them to dry.
 
 
I put a couple of the 3 x 3 cards in that I showed you the other day and some jelly beans.  I made a tube of 1" Snack Size Oreo cookies.  I made these for my Open House if you remember.  I got the tubes at our local scrapbook store.

 
I had a few other gifts for her also.  I found this cute little crock at Crate & Barrel, a Pandora charm of a dog bone for her new dog, and

 
of course something from See's.  Then while in California I found these chocolate covered almonds that look like olives...so I had to buy a tiny martini glass to put them in!  Isn't that cute??
 
 
I painted a few other bags while I had the stuff out for other friends. This is one of the main reasons I got into Stampin' Up! because I love to make cute things!!!  Don't you??
