Mystery Box Project Revealed


Here it is, what you've been waiting for. Finally the Custom Crops Mystery Box project that keep me sooo busy last week is posted and ready to reveal. My project is a recipe box and recipe card holder. It all started with a papier mache gabled house that I got at my LSS.

Here are the box contents: Jillibean Soup Kraft paper (almost missed that), German glass glitter, Mini gel pen holder and pens for the Cricut, Sizzix embossing folders, Shrink film, plastic utensils and a box of Kix Swirls cereal. the gel pen holder and utensils gave me the basic idea for my project and enjoyed the challenge of using all of the objects.


See if you can spot where they all were used.

There are lots more pix and an explanation of how it all came together HERE. All of the participating designers did a fabulous job and I'm sure we are all looking forward to the next time. And if you'd like to be included as a guest designer and receive your very own Mystery Box Challenge, be sure to email Custom Crops for the chance. The address is at the top of the Mystery challenge page.
