5/20 My Shoebox Swap for our May Demo Meeting

 

Our Scallop Dots Ribbon is retiring and I thought I would share it with my downline at our shoebox swap by having them make their very own mini ribbon spool holding 2 yards of ribbon and personalized with a sentiment from the sneak peek stamp set called A Round Array. It makes a cute gift for a special customer.

The Soda Pop Tops from the Spring Mini catalog are not being carried over so I made sure to order a few extra sets to have on hand since the make such darling embellishments. To smash them, use your Big Shot machine. This is the way I layer them:

1 - I open up the platform to 'no tabs' and set a cutting plate on the platform.
2 - I add a piece of scrap Whisper White card stock to protect the plate from the "bite" that occurs when you smash the cap.
3 - The pop top goes onto the scrap of Whisper White with the pointed edge down and the second cutting plate goes over the top.
4 - Crank it through for a perfectly smashed Soda Pop Top!


Here is the side view. If you are interested in seeing a video that shows how to put mini ribbon spools together, you can click HERE.

I have been subscribing for a while and just now noticed we are neighbors- I am from Central Wisconsin and have siblings in the TC area.. I love the SU bottle caps too, but am wondering if you have any great ideas for the smaller size? I had to order an extra package (before no longer available) for the larger size and now have all these small ones with no clue what to do with them. Thanks for any links or ideas..
