One Stop Craft Challenge 8

I honestly thought I wouldn't have time to make anything for the One Stop Craft Challenge this week. However, as it was our guest designer's chance to set a challenge I really didn't want to let her down.

Well, Claire has set us the challenge of...
Buttons and Bells

Please pop over to the challenge blog to see what Claire has created as it is truly beautiful. I hope you'll have a chance to leave a comment on her blog too because she really does deserve some praise for her project.

I came up with these little box/bags that I will use as stocking fillers for this Christmas. The little red blobs on the gold box are actually miniature buttons. I used buttons on both of my boxes because I didn't have anything that was bell-like left.

I've used:

Gold Hammered
Miniature Buttons
Red Organza ribbon
Gold Eyelets

Black card
Charcoal Prints Paper
3mm White satin Ribbon
Silver Eyelets
Leone Em Rock fern Punch
Making Memories Hydrangea Rose Blossom
Black Fibre
