Gifts for my girls!

As well as spending the afternoon stamping and scrapbooking at our team day a couple of weekends ago, we also took a few minutes to recognise the achievements of team members who had been promoted in the last Stampin' Up! quarter.  I made up some little gifts and presented them to Alison, Annie, Jaz, Jo, Leanne and Vicki who were all promoted to Senior Associate, and Tracey who achieved a promotion to Supervisor!  Yay team! july-promotion-gifts.jpg

The little origami boxes on the left are all made with a base of cardstock and a lid of DSP.  There is a FABULOUS video tutorial on Kristina's blog here showing exactly how to make one of these little boxes up - simple but very sweet :)  Inside the boxes were either some Stampin' Up! magnets or a keyring of Stampin' Up! images that I picked up at Memento Mall at convention this year and last.

Now the little long boxes on the right in the picture I had a LOT of fun making, not least because I made them up all on my own!   Here are a couple of close ups, just click the pictures for a larger image.....

The boxes each contain two pens, also picked up at convention last year, and I wanted to package them up prettily, but unable to find a box template that fit them perfectly, I measured them up and went about making my own!  The little flap at the top folds over and tucks in under the band keeping it all nice and neat :)  I love the way they turned out, and now that I know how easy it was to do, I will have a go at making up my own boxes for other things too!

This next gift I made up for my good friend and team member Tracey who achieved a promotion to Supervisor.  The little box is the same as the others, and I also made a monogrammed cover for a notebook that I had printed up with her name and "Stampin' Up! Demonstrator".

Congratulations girls for your fabulous achievements and I love having you all as part of A Klass Act!
