Convention Roomie Gifts






One of the highlights of attending convention is the roomie gifts we give and receive! This year, since I had the opportunity to work with the cricut cartridge for Extravaganza, I decided to use it for my roomie gifts!

I gave each roomie a "Celebrate" wand and a couple of chocolate party favors! I also featured these in my Extravaganza class.
For the wand, I used two star images cut at 5 1/2" - then scored 1/4" around the outside edges and sandwiched them around a piece of styrofoam. I inserted a wooden dowel through the bottom into the styrofoam. I used a 1" ribbon card and 2 ovals at 1" and 1 1/4".
For the favor, I used a 4 1/2" flat box, 2" decorative frame, and a 3" bow on top. I added the sentiment on a 1/2" oval matted on a 3/4" oval. (Inside is a Ghardelli chocolate!)
These make great and easy gifts and decorations! I think I'm going to be making a bunch of these!
