Crafty Friends...

Hello Crafty Friends!  I am stopping in today to share a Queen and Company project I have been working on.  I have a craft retreat coming up very soon and one of the activities we like to do is a Shoebox Swap.  If you haven't heard of a shoebox swap before, its where you put together a card kit for each guest so they can recreate your card.  First off, let me show you my card.....

Queen and Co

I created this card using the Queen and Company Lines Shaker Card kit.  These cards are so very easy to put together as everything comes in its own kit.  (Kits linked below).  I used the Pops toppings set to create the rainbow shake.  Last, I used my Misti to stamp the sentiment and added in the little stamped envelope.

Here is a quick pick of what I put in each kit....

I divided each color of the Pops Toppings in little baggies for each of 14 kits.  Each guest will get the Lines Card Kit.  I used the Lines Card Front Die to make my own Card Front out of Neenah cardstock, but the kit comes with a card front you can use too.

In the tool kit, I added Queen and Company's Topping Trays.  These are amazing to keep all the little toppings in one place and then the ends will twist off so you can pour your toppings back in their storage container.  No lost toppings!  I also added in a jewel picker upper (from Hobby Lobby).  This helps if you get the wrong color topping in the wrong rainbow slot.  :)  I also put the sentiment on a block as well as the little envelope and a black ink pad.  Everything in one place to create their own shaker card.

I put each card kit into a clear zipper bag that I found on Amazon....

I can't wait to pass out my card kits.  I know my friends will have fun creating their own shaker card.

So glad you stopped in today!  Hope you have enjoyed my creation!

Have a great day!
