Stampin’ Up! UK European Convention Swaps!

Stampin’ Up! UK European Convention Swaps!


POOTLES Stampin Up UK Convention Swaps Video Tutorial 2

Well, as you read this post, I am currently well and truly deep inside the European Convention in Manchester.

At the time of typing, I’ve absolutely no idea what to expect other than a great deal of jollity, excitement, learning, and many other adjectives to describe the indescribable!

However, one of the things that I can predict is that the best part of 1,000 demonstrators from the UK, France, Holland, Austria and Germany have descended on Manchester and are probably swapping across cards they’ve made.

Because that is what we do. At any Stampin’ Up event, we make a number of cards or projects, and then swap them with fellow demonstrators.

It’s a great way to network, a brilliant way to come home with ideas and inspiration, and most definitely a marvellous way to see just how other people make cards and projects.

For me though, I decided that I wasn’t going to make a card, but make something Totally Pootles…

A fold flat mini gift bag!

So today’s video, hopefully perfectly timed, will show you all, how to make a mini fold flat gift bag.
