Team Swaps

This year at Sydney Convention, Kim our Team Leader organised a get together and a team swap on the Thursday. These are the boxes I made for that swap. The box is copyright by Donna from Butternut Sage Designs but you can purchase the instructions to make this box for a very reasonable price.
I had moments while making these boxes wondering what the heck I was doing this for!!!! lol
These are pics I took in the process. The trays of some of the embossing I did, before cooking and after cooking. Then the finished results. I used Donna's colours for one lot and my own for the others. Sage Shadow, Lavender Lace and Elegant Eggplant and the other boxes used Real Red, Basic Black and Brushed Gold. The stamp set is Pendant Park.
Thanks so much Donna for the inspiration. I'm pretty sure my swaps were very well received and that everyone liked them. Inside each one was a little choccie, cherry ripe for the red and twirl for the purple. I actually made 24 for the team swap and 4 that a friend ended up with.
I've got some photos of convention which I'll put up next post.
Thanks for looking,
