Team Retreat Swaps – Part 1

Hi Everyone,

I had an amazing weekend crafting with my Stampin’ Sisters at our annual team retreat. We had some marvellous make & takes too which I will be sharing soon.

Part of the fun is making “swaps”; little gifts we exchange to share creative inspiration.

This was my swap… I made 50 in total, 10 each in the five 2018 In Colours. They hold these cute little bubbles.

I don’t make many 3D projects, so these needed to be simple.

Start with a 1-1/2 inch strip of card stock cut from the short edge of an A4 sheet.

Score the strip on the long side at

  • 4-3/4
  • 5-3/8
  • 7-1/8
  • 7-3/4

For those using 8-1/2 by 11 card stock, the scoring will still work, but will create a larger piece at the end for gluing.

Fold and burnish the score lines.

Cut a 4-3/4 by 1-1/2 inch piece of coordinating In Colour DSP and adhere this to the end of the card stock. Use the Tag Topper punch to shape the end.

Flip over the card stock strip and add more DSP to the 1-3/4 by 1-1/2 section.

Punch 1/2 inch holes in the last but one section of the strip.

Fold the card stock and glue in to place.

I used a sentiment from Wood Words and punched this out.

Don’t they look great all together like this!

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed and linked to the online store below.

  1. Hi Heidi,
    I love this project, and would love to make some, but please can you tell me where you bought your bubble wands, and were they pre-filled…!? I can only find empty ones on Amazon. Thank you in anticipation…x
