27 November 2012 – Mystery Box Challenge Part 1

I’ve been participating in a Mystery Box Challenge this year with the ESAD facebook group that I belong to.  At the start of the year, we received a list of items to be made each month with the end result being a gift box of goodies to send to a lucky recipient.

My goal was to make each item in the appropriate month, but sometimes life doesn’t work out that way.  As the deadline for posting the box is 1 December, I’ve been madly trying to get it all finished.  I finally did it last week and just have to package up the box and post it off.

I wanted to keep it all matching as much as I could, so I have used Beau Chateau Designer Series Paper from the previous catalogue as the main paper to base it around.  I love this paper and I’m so glad that I’ve still got some left!!

So for January’s project, we had to cover a box so that we could store all the items in.  I’m afraid I cheated on this one and bought a box from one of the cheap stores as it had a lovely velvet look!!

February’s project was 4 assorted cards with different themes and matching envelopes. Now I have cased these but it was so long ago and I didn’t keep a record of where.  I’m really happy with how they turned out!

March – A covered note book plus a family favourite recipe typed/written out to share.  Must remember to put in a recipe!!

April – Easter inspired card or gift box.  My downline had created this cute carrot from the Petal Cone die, which is very cute!

I’ll be back in the next day or so with more!!
