A little "Magical" for the most Magical place on Earth

This year's Close to My Heart annual convention was held at Coronado Resort at Walt Disney World. What a wonderful venue!  Can you imagine the excitement we all felt to be paper crafting at the happiest place on earth?  I was counting down the days to convention all year long.  It didn't disappoint either.  More on that later.

Each year at convention, consultants swap projects with other consultants.  It is called a Swap and it is one of my favorite things to do at convention.  Before CTMH opens the doors to the day's activities, consultants group together and trade projects with each other.  It is a great ice breaker and a fun way to see how others make use of our products.

This year I decided to make little chocolate and tea treat holders.  I was able to make about 44 swaps for the event.  I probably could have made more if I had stuck with one theme, but I wanted to mix it up with our different paper packs and product.  I realized this was a good thing because when consultants looked at my swaps--they definitely knew exactly one they wanted. I had Disney themed, flamingos, Ocean themed, travel and a few others.

These gift holders are very quick and easy to make.  I have made a quick "how to" video to show how quick and easy they really do come together.



Quick note:  The tea bag/chocolate holder that has three holders are just attached using adhesive. Nothing difficult about that!  These were special for a couple of people that continue to support me with all things Close to My Heart.

Happy Crafting!
