Teen Birthday & Tervis Tumblers

My middle child, Emily, who is sixteen, is a huge procrastinator and terrible manager of her own time. She asked just this morning to help her "swoozie up" her gift for her friend's birthday. (Just so you know, Swoozie's is an awesome store with tons of gifts and when you check out, the sales girls always ask, "Would you like me to "Swoozie" this for you?"....which means, "Want me to wrap this for you in really cool colors so your gift will be trendy and cool?"

Sooooo, Emily's gift was this precious Tervis Tumbler which all teens love to drink their sweet tea in. I sell Tervis Tumblers too and this one is a really cute one with a Turquoise, Green and Navy flower that is perfect for her friend. We wrapped some chocolate candy in a cello bag and tied a Turquoise tag on. Then for her Birthday card, we used the Dormant stamp set, Garden Greetings (113716, $21.95) and randomly stamped the images in Tempting Turquoise, Green Galore and Night of Navy. The little flower embellishment is just card stock cut using the Boho Blossoms punch with a brad to hold the layers together.

Be sure to check out the sidebar for a complete listing of Dormant Stamps. The stamp set Garden Greetings can still be ordered but is considered dormant because it is not pictured in the current catalogs.

Oh, that's just too stinkin' cute--- and now I *have* to ask - how do you sell Tervis Tumblers? Are they something like SU or Premiere Jewelry that you do as a home business?
