I'm going to a conference for my son's youth group next week in a part of the country we haven't been to before. I wanted to take a little Calgary hospitality as a thank-you for the organizers. I needed a simple/creative way to wrap the bolo ties that could be packed flat in my suitcase & easily assembled at our destination. The boxes & bags are from Michaels & the bandanas from a dollar store.
I went pretty old school by digging out the Western Sky DP & Wanted stamp set. I used the paisley EF from Cuttlebug. I even found some ancient build-a-brads. It all came together fairly easily after that.
I was going to stamp on the bags themselves but as they are a little lumpy, I was afraid I would smudge the ink. I opted just for the image the size of an A2 card instead. The outcome isn't as masculine as I had envisioned, but they should be ok.
