In these crazy Corona/Covid-19 virus times, most of us are “forced” to stay at home and this can certainly be a challenge for some. Not for me. This is just what I usually do. I’m not a social butterfly irl but I love to socialize online though 😉
The trick for me to be able to stay at home without going more mental than I already am, is crafting and these days it seems like it more legit to do so. I don’t have to go to bed early so I can get the kids to school in the morning and I can’t go to the Gym (not my favorite thing in the world but somethings are just a necessity). Luckily I’m a craft supply hoarder so I got everything I need at hand. Yay.
It can be difficult to decide on what to make next but the last couple of months it hasn’t been a problem for me due to Design Team projects, favors, gifts etc. Also I like to participate in Challenges. To test myself and to get better at what I do.
Yesterday I posted the latest challenge I entered – the “Stack-a-holic Challenge” on DCWV’s Facebook Page. Today I want to show you my entry in their “Quick-Challenge” on Instagram.
The assignment was to make any flower-themed project made mostly with DCWV products. I used some time to think about what to make but fairly quickly I settled on the cute and pretty Framed Panels Bag from SVGCuts’ Bunny Trail Bags.
This gift bag is great for many occasions mainly because you can decorate it with different images on the front – like these cut-outs I did or maybe you could use pictures of the recipient.
I used the “Watering Can” stack from DCWV and used the sentiment cards in the stack for the front panel.
As the theme was flowers I chose to cut out some Asters from the Harvest Mail kit also from SVGCuts. They match the flower on the patterned paper perfectly. I dotted the flower center with Gold Stickles.
I used the same stack for all sides of the bag….
and the back:
Finally I used some Tim Holtz boxwood wire as a handle and I was done.
Now it’s ready to be used for the next perfect occasion….that is when this virus nightmare is over….but it’s always nice to have stuff on hand.
I would really love it if you would go here on Instagram and vote for my entry in the Challenge. You vote by clicking YES to my picture. You need to click on the DCWV story/logo to find my picture to vote. Just click YES 🙂
I really want to win (duh who doesn’t) as the prize is a new DCWV stack and these are not accessible in Europe….yet anyways.
Thank you so much for visiting today and thanks for voting. Join me again soon as I have a DT project for the Coffee Beans Design Team coming up next week 🙂
