1  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 57 ENTRIES / Merry christmas, come on in. on: December 05, 2010 11:08:23 AM
I've had some light green cardstock and a sheet of kraft paper from the box my dishes came in sitting in my paper supplies for awhile now, and Christmas seems the perfect time to use them both.  The door to my apartment is also rather empty, but the previous tenant put a nail in it to hang a wreath, so I decided it needed some decoration for the holidays.  We can't hang anything heavy because our door tends to get shaken whenever the outside door to our unit is closed.  Paper, then, is the perfect medium for making our door welcoming for the holidays, and a little gift box with a merry Christmas wish is now hanging on the door.

I first used the square box template.  I printed it on regular paper, then traced it onto the kraft paper and cardstock.  I used the flower template as well, and printed that one directly onto the cardstock because of the detailed cuts.  With a bit of glue, the box was ready.  A little slit in the back with my handy dandy craft knife let me hang it on the door.  The little bit that says "Merry Christmas" was also cut from the template, but without separating each of the petals for the flower, so that it's a little medallion.




Happy holidays!
2  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Crafty Charitable/Social Causes / a stone's throw-raising money with handmade necklaces to fight human trafficking on: September 11, 2010 09:05:12 PM
This is a project a friend of my little sister started, but I've begun selling them on etsy since she's back in school and can't do the craft fair circuit too easily.  
Miss K has already raised $1000+ for Rapha House, a shelter for girls rescued from the human trafficking industry in Asia.  I've only sold four necklaces so far, but I really hope to start selling more at a craft fair or two in my little college town and back home.  
They're pretty things, and Miss K made each one!
See?
