Stampin’ Up! UK Customer Thank You Gifts – Scissor Charms!
I have the most awesome people who shop through me. I have ladies who craft, ladies who craft to sell, chaps who are buying gifts for their wives/girlfriends (do you do training courses for giftly challenged husbands? please…), and I treasure every one who chooses me as their demonstrator.
You each support me, support my business, and I take the greatest delight in making little gifts for you all.
Every time someone shops with me, no matter how many times (!), I make a little gift and a thank you card and pop it in the post a week or so later.
My regulars know that something is coming, but they never know what, and my new customers get a lovely surprise when the letter box rattles and there’s a little something from me!
This is the part of my job that I adore. I genuinely love making things for people, and I take great delight in knowing that these will hopefully brighten someone’s day!
I very rarely share the images of cards or gifts on my blog, preferring to keep that as a special ‘secret’ with my customers, however, I popped a picture snapped off my phone onto my facebook page recently, and it was so well received, that I decided to share a rare insight into the ‘hidden’ side of what I do for people.
These are scissors charms. They’re tiny silver plated envelopes (of course!) threaded with linen thread and tied onto some 1/8″ taffeta ribbon and then threaded onto a matchbook style holder.
The idea is that these are untied from the holder and then tied onto your scissors. They’re perfect if you have a few pairs of scissors that are the same, but one is your dedicated cardstock pair, and maybe another is a fabric pair. And I know that some of my ladies and gents attend craft crops, and these are a great way to identify them as yours.
So I won’t share the ‘recipe’ for this build much further, but share some visuals of the ones I made for my customers!
I hope you enjoyed this project, please do use the hostess code to support Pootles! (hostess code shown in the top right of my blog for the current one!)
