My Swaps For Convention Take Two (2 months later!)

Howdy All!
So, it's been 2 months, ha! That's kind of funny! But, I am back with some more photos of my swaps for this years Stampin' Up! Convention back in July.

 These little cuties were the first of my two 3-D swaps. Aren't they adorable? They have yummy mint patties tucked between the layers. I didn't get a good photo of the side view.
 These went together pretty fast. I punched all the whisper white 1-3/8" circles out first and then did all my stamping on them using the Snow Day stamp set from the Holiday catalog. The sentiment is from the Petite Pairs stamp set. These were placed in pretzel bags that I got from Michaels. They were finished off with some current matching ribbons!
 My second 3-D swaps were these darling Chiclets holders. I saw something similar on Pinterest but I wanted to be able to maximize my card stock, so I reconfigured the dimensions. You need a piece of cardstock measuring 2-1/8" x 11'' scored at 3-3/4", 4-1/8", 7-7/8" and 8-1/4". I used the Large Oval punch to create my hole to slip the Chiclets into. I used the Afternoon Picnic DSP, which I love, and a bunch of punches/thinlits to decorate the fronts. Topped them off with some gorgeous Crushed Curry Chevron ribbon!
They were both huge hits at Convention!
As always, I have tons of projects that I have been working on and someday I will get caught up with posting photos!
Thanks a bunch for stoppin' by!
See you again soon!
