Brussels Swaps -


Good morning, as promised I am today sharing the swaps that I made to take to the Stampin'Up! On Stage Live event in Brussels this past weekend.   What a fantastic event this was and what a beautiful place to visit, Brussels.  The architecture was stunning. 
We had very little time to explore this wonderful place but what we saw was truly beautiful.
Another thing that was also gorgeous was the Chocolate!!  I have never in my life seen so much chocolate in one place!  Of course, I had to sample some and can say with certainty that Belgian chocolate is the best by far!!
Anyway, back on track!

Not sure why I always choose to do swaps that take so long to prepare!  
This first picture shows the flowers that I had made which were then attached  to a couple of sticks of the gorgeous smelling cinnamon.  In the corner of the picture you can see the tags that I gold embossed and attached to some gold glimmer card.
The tag was then attached to the other end of the cinnamon sticks using the gold twine.

This was the final result!   After assembling the cinnamon sticks & tags I then cut out a little sweet treat bag and attached it to it. These very versatile bags can be used for lots of things, sweets, a greeting card, a gift card etc etc.

Here a couple of pics to show the different paper I used for the bags

I hope that the ladies I swapped with were happy with their swaps and to know that it was a real pleasure making them to share with them.

Thank you for stopping by today and don't forget to stop by to see the WOW swaps that I also made.

Have a great day
Take care

    You can't beat chocolate from abroad as it so better than ours, that's why I bye mine from Lidl
