Step Away From The Cards (Bags and Boxes) - DCM Challenge

Happy Friday!

I'm still getting over the Sarah Hurley Live! event yesterday. It was packed full of information, inspiration, networking and creativity.  I was fortunate enough to demonstrate there as part of the Sarah Hurley Community.

On to this week's theme for the DCM Challenge which is 'Step Away From The Cards'.  We were asked to make/decorate gift bags or boxes.


I actually needed to decorate a box for a gift I'd bought my sister in law. I used washi tape in 2 contrasting colours to create a central border and topped with a die cut butterfly. I cut the butterfly in both plain cardstock and some foiled velum. To embellish I used a little twine and a flower. It was a quick and easy way to transform a plain box.

You can see the wonderful creations by the Team here. I hope you'll join in!
