HAND SANITIZER 3-D SWAP ITEM FOR STAMPIN’ UP! ON STAGE EVENT IN BRUSSELS

November 6, 2015
AMENDMENT: 2-12-16:  I totally forgot to add the scoring measurements once I got my hands on these hand-sanitizers when I got to France/Brussels.  I have added them below where they should have originally been placed!  Sorry for forgetting.

Here’s the first of the items I made for swapping.  I understand from my Brussels roommate that attendees at the European conventions swap more 3-D type items than cards.  And when it’s a card it’s a full card and not a card front (saving card stock) as we do here in the U.S.

Hand Sanitizers from Bath & Body Works.  I mailed these, along with a bunch of other goodies, to my French host family.  Box 1 (of 2) has safely already arrived.

I prepared all of the parts for my little giftable packets ahead of time and shipped them last week.  When I get to my host family’s home in Houppeville (does that sound French?), we will finish assembling these 3-D items and put them in their cello bags.

Waiting for assembly. They shipped much smaller unassembled!!

I hope I haven’t forgotten anything!

Here’s what I did ahead of time:

  • Cut card stock to 9-1/2″ x 2″
Cutting of Cherry Cobbler card stock for hand sanitizer holders

(2-12-16)  UPDATED MEASUREMENTS ADDED BELOW:
  • Scored each piece at 1/2″, 1-1/2″,  4″ and 5″ (updated with proper measurements 2-12-16)
  • Punch Large Oval Punch hole in “top” of holder.
  • Use Scalloped Tag Topper Punch on one end of 2″ strip.
  • Stamp image, using Cherry Cobbler ink, on top of 2″ wide strip; flip over and add a piece of Tear & Tape adhesive in the 1/2″ area for securing ‘box’.

  • Attach a small bit of Tear & Tape to the bottom of each hand sanitizer for stability when it’s in the box.
  • Attach pre-made flowers to the front of each box with Stampin’ Dimensionals (at least 3 of them).

It’ll be interesting now to see if I forgot any parts and how the many pieces traveled.  I’ll post photos of the finished assortment on my FaceBook page once they’re done.  I won’t have access to a computer or my blog posts until I return home.  Scary!!!
