Anything Goes at CRAFT Challenge

Good Morning and welcome to a new challenge over at

This week we have a nice and easy challenge for you…

Anything Goes

We have three very generous sponsors this week


For my project, I was lucky enough to be given ‘Wheel Barrow Treat Box’ from The Cutting Café’  to work with - here




I cut the template out on my Sihouette machine, but the cutting café sets come with a PDF version if you don’t have a cutting machine.
I cut the basic box from Kraft card.
The second layer was black paper to give some definition to the patterned paper which is from a Bearly mine collection, sadly no longer available.
The poinsettias were die cut from red and green card.
The tag was from a Michelle Roos called Santa is coming, the sentiment was added to it on the PC.
I added Glamour dust paint to the flowers and Hunky Dory Snow glitter to the bottom.
I put three small chocolate bars in the box, but it could easily hold a small gift or gift card. I intend to save this for my grandson’s teacher at Christmas and put a bag of truffles inside.


I would like to enter this project into the following challenges…..
