Box It Up @ A Vintage Journey

Hi Friends,

It is the first Friday of the month and that means a new challenge at A Vintage Journey.  This time our hostess, the lovely Julia, gave us this description of the challenge.

This month our theme is boxes! Perhaps you will make a trunk or suitcase, some kind of package to hold a gift, or maybe make a card or journal page showing presents. Just remember to ensure that you create in one of our preferred styles of vintage, shabby, mixed media, art journaling, industrial, timeworn or steampunk.

I decided to go for a stroll in the Pumpkin Patch.  

For the Box It Up challenge I used the Woven Basket die set from Karen Burniston which makes a woven box card that folds flat for mailing as you can see in the photo above.

I have provided links below for you to click and shop.
I hope you will join us at A Vintage Journey to see all the great boxed up creations from the
Creative Guides.

See you next week and have a great weekend,
