I really like the look of the 2 tags die used to make a treat tent. Die cut 2 of the larger tags from the bigz die. attach at the bottom where the fold is to make a triangle use ribbon to attach on top and embellish the frount with either the 2 step bird punch and dsp or any stamp set. I like the ease of the punches for cutting out and prep for a shoebox swap. Hugs and happy stamping I hope this helps Lori Watson email

For a shoe box swap, I would love to get chocolate in the mini milk carton using the new scallop border trim punch....on my list...:) Maybe with the owl punch,,,,on the list too!

here is a designe that would be very easy to duplicate for a shoe box swap.

How about little purses with dsp wrapped chocolates inside. Just in case there is a chocolate emergency at convention. :)

Ah free stamps...perfect. I'm crossing my fingers you like this idea.

With a lot of people looking towards Christmas and the new Holiday mini now available to demonstrators maybe a Christmas theme that uses product in new ways? Check out this post of mine from last Christmas. It gets a wow response everytime and you can adapt to use any current stamps that appeal. Great embellishment possibilities too.

Quick and easy to make and people can mix colors to their hearts content.

And if you cut the stencils out of Window Sheets they'd last a long time. Depending on the size of the group you could actually make a stencil for each person to take home along with their card.

Sounds like you're going to end up with a lot of great ideas for this swap or the next.

Gave fun!

Tried to copy & paste a picture of a shoebox swap I created for one of our demo groups in NC but was unsuccessful. Did send it through email.

I came up with a card for the Cute by the Inch set that uses the new Scallop Rectangle clearlits, just a touch of the 1/8" grosgrain, some new DP, and several punches. It is easily adaptable and won't break the bank if you have a large swap going on. You can see it here:
Good luck finding the project that suits you best!
