VC Rocks roomie gift

I have the most amazing roomie!!! Carol you really do rock!!! Even though she is off to the real convention, she made me this totally AWESOME gift box. She altered the metal box with ribbon, paper and chipboard. She also included a jar of candy. A make and take coaster project. A candle and some pretty postcards. Even some cute cards! Also an altered notebook and a 6x6 journal. I am shocked at my roomie's generous and thoughtful. I have never been so blessed. I have never had a better roomie than Carol. Thank you so much Carol! Carol have a great time at convention.

VC Rocks

This is part of the gift I made for my VC Rocks roomie. I have never been to the Stampin' Up! convention, so I don't really know what to make. We did have some guidelines, something handmade, a make and take, and something tasty. Anyways, I made my roomie an altered small accordian folder. I stamped the front and attached the paper to the folder. Inside each pocket, I put different items. One was a couple of large paper clips and buttons for my roomie's make and take. I added some hand made cards. I also threw in some crystal light drink sticks. I know that my roomie likes chocolate, but after having grown up on the East Coast, which is where my roomie lives now, I know that all chocolate melts!!! Perhaps I can send her some chocolate during the winter!
