CTMH Convention Goodies | Catalog Survival Kit

Category: Close To My Heart  |  Permalink

Published: Thursday, July 14, 2011

Since the Close To My Heart Convention has already started I wanted to share with you all the convention gifts I made for some of my CTMH Friends.

Check out these gift bags I made... they are what I like to call the "Close To My Heart Idea Book Survival Kit". Also known as a Catalog Survival Kit but ours are called "Idea Books" cause they are way more than just a catalog. =)


In each bag is all of this fun stuff... tweezers, buffer, nail clippers, post-it notes, rubber bands, band-aids, lifesavers, starbursts, pen and a handmade eco-friendly paper flower made by me. You're probably wondering why those items are in the survival kit... see below to find out why I chose those items. =)

Here is the tag that I tied with to each back using CTMH Hemp...

In case it is hard to read... here is what the tag says:

{Close To My Heart Idea Book Survival Kit}

Tweezers: to pick out all your new favorite stamp sets
Starbursts: for a burst of energy while viewing the catalog
Post-its: to mark the pages of all your must have products
Life Savers: in case you are drowning in a sea of new ideas
Rubber Bands: to stretch your creativity & imagination
Band-aids: for paper cuts from rapidly flipping the pages
Buffer: to help you shine with your new ideas
Pen: to help get your order written out & ready to go
Nail Clippers: to remind you to clip on your eco-friendly flower
And I stamped a little heart with my logo stamp =)


I also made these little goodies that are Tic Tacs with a cute little tag stamped with "Celebrate the Occasion" and a cute little star. On the back I stamped my logo and they are topped with a handmade eco-friendly flower.  

Here is a close up:

I'm loving these flowers... I used paper bags from the grocery store, some feathers, CTMH Black ink and some black netting that I got at Joann's. I'll get into more details on how made the flowers if you're interested when I get back.

I appreciated your info from Convention as a CTMH sister! I'd also love to know how to make the flowers. I already punch out some circles from a rare paper brown bag...what next. I think I need our CTMH scalloped punch though...

What a great gift idea for convention. I saw the beautiful paper flowers in person and they were a big hit. Please share with us how you made them. :)
