MichJay Challenge #3 - Papertrey's Ready, Set Wrap!

Hello and Happy Monday... today is the 20th, and on the 20th of every month is the MICHJAY Challenge!! A reminder what the MichJay Challenge is "a personal challenge between me and my Buddie JayJay (http://www.stempelelfejayjay.blogspot.com/), we were chatting at how wonderful it is so many can do the wonderful 3-D items so easily - and after a while decided that we just needed to step out of the box of cards and challenge each other. So once a month we will hold the MichJay Challenge!"

This is challenge number 3... and I am very excited about this one. I so loved this template - fellow Stampavie DT Lauren Meader designs templates for Papertrey Ink.. "My Timeless Templates" and the one we chose to purchase and use for our MichJay Challenge is "Ready, Set and Wrap" ... really cute, and I was amazed at how easy it was to use the template and put together.

Cute or what???? I found this gorgeous paper in my stash from Graphic 45 Playtimes past collection, this is two sided paper that is just luxurious. Being two sided is a must when you are planning to see the inside of the item, and I just love the contrast between these two patterns.


Now I planned to use one of the new Stampavie Sarah Kay images for my art on the front of the little box. This is "A lollipop for Suzan" - cut with my oval Nesties. Then matted with a red larger oval. I found these cute little flower in my box of flowers, and they just seemed perfect to match. I then punched one Martha Stewart frond leaf punch and cut it apart and used each individual leaf for the tiny little flowers.

Here you can see the box opened up the two pieces are attached in the center... and yes it is perfect for sending that perfect little gift to a friend.. like a new Sarah Kay stamp!!

I inked the edges of my template to give it shadows. So what do you think? I am so excited to see what JayJay made!!! he he we don't go and look at each others item until we have posted our own... So lets go.... and see hers.... HERE


Oh and if you want to join our little challenge please do!!! With today's challenge you will need to purchase the template from Papertrey.. but they are only $5.00 and I am sure you will use it over and over!! And then please leave a comment so we can come and look at what you made. I am so happy we are doing this - I am not nearly as nervous to jump out of my Card box and give 3-d items a try and that was the whole point!

Hope you have a wonderful day... Now I am running over to Jay Jay and see if she has posted hers...

HUGS and-
