Convention Swap

One of the fun parts of wait...everything is fun!  A fun start to Convention is the swaps.  This is optional but most people do it.  You prepare a card front many times over and include a 'recipe' of the products and colours you used.  You then swap these with other demonstrators and get a whole bunch of ideas back.  Make 50 swaps, get 50 back.  Some people make 300...but I do not want that many card fronts in return!  Instead of a card front, I made a 3D item this year.

These cute little handbags were surprisingly quick to make.

After I had made them, I decided to add the tag on the side.  I am glad I did as I think it finishes it off nicely.

Inside is a little Dove chocolate.
