WOW Swaps

A couple of weeks ago Natalie put a shout out to all the Stampin' Stars and asked who would be interested in taking part in a WOW Swap. As the name implies, the idea is to make a swap that everyone will say WOW to when they see it. I agreed to take part because I only needed to make 5 of them (including one for me), so in theory it was not too onerous.

This is what I came up with (with a little input from a fellow demo Lesley, who did not go to Convention). I can share it with you now because the swap was due to take place on Thursday evening and this is due to post on Friday morning. At least that's the plan. I took all the parts to Brussels with me and may yet still be sitting in my hotel room putting them together.  I thought it best to do that because I wanted room in my suitcase to take things other than swaps and gifts. Yep, I have more goodies to share with you, just not today.

From the side, the front and back have the same stamped image.

Inside are three chocolate truffles.

I used the Curvy Keepsake Box Die and half a 12" x 12" Window Sheet to make this. Once I had cut out the box (you make two halves and then stick them together), I used White StazOn to stamp images from the Flowering Flourishes Stamp Set.

I'll share the other WOW Swaps once I have had a chance to take photographs of each of them.

The Stampin' Up! products used to make this WOW Swap (at least I think it's a WOW) are:
