The Canberra Craft Fair

Last Friday I spent the day on our Stampin' Up! Stand down at the Craft Fair here in Canberra. Each year hundreds of people flock to Exhibition Park to visit the Fair which runs for four days.

This year I ran one of the Craft Circles again. Each person that attended made three projects which focussed on the Big Shot Die-cutting Machine. This cute little gift box was one of the projects.
To create this I have run some Old Olive card stock through the Big Shot twice — first with the Fancy Favor Die and then with the Little Leaves Die. I tied some Rich Razzleberry polka dot ribbon to the top to form a little handle. Inside there are some chocolates in a cello bag with a little "to you from me" tag.

After all the effort of organising for the Craft Fair, it has taken all week to get things in order at home — but today I feel a little in control again. Hope to have some time in the next few days to do some creating, and I can't wait to share with you some of what is coming in the new catalogue!


  1. Welcome back Shelley, I've missed you! This project is so sweet - and you make it seem so easy! I've been eyeing off that die... :)
