Handmade Fabric Lanyards - Calgary Stampin' Up! Regional 2013 Downline Gifts

This past Saturday I went to the Stampin' Up! Calgary Regionals with 9 members of my team (sad all of them couldn't be there) and 4 fabulous guests.  I love my team and I love my customers so I wanted to make them a special gift for each of them for coming.  

So about a week ago I started to make these lanyards with the Tea Shoppe Stampin' Up! fabric.  As I've mentioned before I LOATHE ironing, and for someone with an ironing aversion I have to say that maybe I should have thought my project selection through a little.  But, I love these girls so it was worth all the ironing to see how much they loved their gifts.

I embellished each one with a little fabric flower that I made with the Fun Flowers Die and one of the buttons from the Sycamore Street Sale-a-bration buttons.  

And I couldn't give them their pretty new lanyards without packaging them super cute too.  I popped each one in a Medium Cello Bag, topped it with an Apothecary Framelits die cut piece of Very Vanilla cardstock embossed with the Honeycomb folder, and embellished with a bow from the Sycamore Street Ribbon.

I think the girls loved them.  I know I wore mine with pride!
