The Annual Stampin' Up! Convention started today. I wasn't able to go this year (I've missed the past couple of years) I'm always a bit bummed to miss out on convention is SO full of great energy and inspiration but fortunatly a few of my team members are going so they can bring a bit of that excitement back to share with the team! :)
I always like to send a little gift along with my convention goers. This year the convention Theme was "I Am..." a GREAT theme because being who you are and building your SU business your way is what SU is all about!! The logo for this year's convention theme was a fun chalkboard, sketchy theme so I knew I wanted to create a gift around that same feel.
A bag tag is always necessary at convention so you can tell your convention bag apart from all the other bags :) so I came up with this idea
A Die Cut Chalkboard Bag Tag/Keychain
Here's a little closer look so you can see the Rhinestone and flower I added to the front. I wrote each convention goers name on the tag using A Wet Erase marker so the name would not rub off in all the bumping into eachother and crowding into places that happens at convention! :) But I did include a piece of chalk with each tag so they can erase their names if they want and write whatever strikes their fancy onto their tags. "Like I am.. Creative", "Got Stamps?" and "Do Your Feet Hurt Too?"
I orignially planned to have the chalkboard on both sides of the tag, but that was a little too plain for me so I added a little Designer Series Paper to the back side instead. Now when the tag swings as they walk you get a little hint of some color now and then too...
To complete the gift I filled a cello bag with a few Granola Bars (you always need a snack now and then at convention) tucked the chalk into the bag and tied it shut. I added the Bag Tag to the package as a Gift Tag and then sent them all along with one of my downline so she can hand them out once they're all settled into the Hotel Room in Salt Lake City!
