Pootles Team Swaps

What an amazing weekend I've had. It started on Friday with a Pootles Team Celebration afternoon and then on Saturday it was On Stage - Stampin' Up! annual catalogue launch. It is lovely to get together with the team, we chat every day online but it is so much better when we can do it in person. Like at On Stage when the Pootlers get together we swap. Today I am going to show what I made for the team.

Pootles team swaps

These are little mini gift bags which surprisingly took me an age to make and so I abandoned the toper I had planned as it got to 1.30am on the day I was leaving at 9am and sleep was required! In the picture you should be able to see a scissor charm - this is what was inside the bag, a scissor charm for everyones snips :-)


Because I was making 56 of these I wanted to use as little DSP as possible so designed this little bag that could be made from a 3" x 3 3/4" piece so you get 12 from a 12" x 12" sheet!

I used Fresh Florals for the this bag and used all the current in colours. I fastened each bag with some Whisper White Bakers twine and tied 56 bows! Never again! lol

  • Fresh Florals DSP 3" x 3 3/4"
  • Score on Long side @ 1 1/4" - 1 3/4" - 3"- 3 1/2" 
  • Score on Short side @ 1/2
  • Flip over and score again @ 1/2"
  • The 1/2" scored on wrong side is folded over and glued down
  • The the back is made up as usual
I have no idea why it took so ling to put these bags together, lots of snipping, notching, scoring, burnishing, gluing I guess.


I bought the charms from eBay and the fastenings and attached the charm to the fastening. There are loads to choose from and they are inexpensive, I got 15 for 99Pp These were then wrapped in tissue and placed in the bag.

So now you have the supplies, press play below and craft along with me :-) 

If you would like to experience 'swapping' then why not join my team and you can attend the next Pootlers team day in September with me and attend On Stage in November. The perks of being a demo are great and the discount is enough in its self, you can just be a hobby demo who just buys for themselves or you can start your own business its entirely up to you and I am here to help you every step f the way :-)

I will be back with the swaps I made for On Stage soon :-)

See ya soon
