Convention 2012 Make & Takes: Daydream Medallions

This is the second installation of my Convention Make & Takes, the first one was for the stamp set Affection Collection, which you can see in THIS POST. The stamp set for these projects is called Daydream Medallions. Here's the printed bag they gave us our supplies in, as well as the mini bag with our "treat" for the day. (I'll show all the treats in an upcoming post with the last Make & Take stamp set!)
Just to recap, I usually take my Make & Takes home to assemble them, so I can take my time, and even tweak the projects a little. For instance, on the box, the instructions were to use actual ribbon down the sides of the box that has the paper ribbon on top. To me, that change in texture was really distracting, so I just added more of the same color card stock I used to make the paper ribbon. And, I wasn't super excited about the colors for the cards, so I subbed in Soft Suede instead of Early Espresso for the brown, and varied my cards slightly.
By the way, the coordinating Floral Frames Framelits will cut 4 of the 5 images from the Daydream Medallions stamp set, so that's a great companion buy! Also, there were 4 envelopes provided for the cards, which you do not see in my finished project. The Make & Take sample picture and instructions called for using the coordinating Daydream Jumbo Wheel over each of the envelope flaps.
Another small note, if you are thinking of getting the Daydream Medallions set: do NOT throw away the circle and ring shaped rubber pieces that come in the center of the medallion images. They make great polka dots! I chose the clear-mount Daydream Medallions set, so it's super easy to just pop any of the images onto an acrylic block to use them. You'll see the polka dots on the card box for this project, inked up with VersaMark ink.
