Anything Goes at Anything But a Card Challenges # 37
Hi! I am so glad you stopped by today! It's my turn to share a project for Anything But a Card Challenges. We are having an 'anything goes' theme this month which means you can share just about anything under the sun with us! Gotta love that!
I have been doing some major cleaning and purging of my home this summer and came across some cardboard jewelry boxes. They weren't anything fancy, just plain white boxes with the store's logo. I'm not sure what my original plan was when I saved them, but they were the perfect size for gift cards, so they were covered and decorated to be used as pretty packages for some thank you gifts.
Rather than cover the entire lid and base with paper, I cut scraps to cover the top of the lid and glued ribbon to the sides. Then I added a strip of paper around the base. This kept them from getting too bulky. I colored a couple of stamped clay pieces that I made ages ago, added some punched leaves and a few candy dots.
This one seemed like it needed a little pizazz, so I added
stickles to the flower in the center of the clay piece, and
some cherry cobbler dazzling details to the candy dots.
This one had a more masculine feel, so I left it pretty basic.
Well, I hope you enjoyed my repurposing project and we would love to see what you have been creating this month! Please stop by the challenge blog and share your creation with us-as long as it's not a card, you're set! Have a fabulous week!
