Convention Make 'n Takes....

I finally finished making up the Make 'n Takes that I received from convention in July.  There is never enough time to make them completely up and I find it is easier to transport them home prior to making them so I usually just make the parts that use supplies that I don't have and then I visit with people.  This year, I actually goofed up and double booked myself for another class at the same time as my Make 'n Take.  I really wanted to take that MDS class so my Make 'n Takes came home - completely undone.   I have finally finished them and will show you the cool items we were given to make at convention.
Our first Make 'n Take was this gorgeous card box which will be available for purchase on September 1 in the Holiday Mini Catalog.  We were given the Timeless Portrait fabric to cover the top as well as the Cherry Cobbler label on the front.  Using the Best Friends Forever stamp set which we were given at convention, we stamped on the label and layered it with the "cards" label and metal frame.  The flower is made using layer upon layer of flowers cut with the Big Shot as well as some made up with the Lace Ribbon Border punch.  A crystal bauble from the Simply Adorned line tops off the flower.  Inside are 6 dividers which we covered using the coordinating Timeless Portrait DSP.  The box comes with templates for covering the lid and sides of the box so all the hard work is already done for you.  What a great gift this would be for someone special with some handmade cards inside!
