Anything But A Card Challenge 1




I'm proud to be working with a new challenge blog called Anything But A Card. The idea is to think outside the box and to share some of the other fab projects many of us work on. ABAC Challenge blog is designed to provide a biweekly challenge for crafters of all kind to create something other than a card! You can do ATC's, tags, sewing, scrapbook layouts, felting, painting, sculpture, altered items, textiles, the list is endless! The only thing NOT allowed is a card!




There are no prizes, but we will feature Three Inspirational Projects from among the challenge entries after the challenge ends. You may combine with any other challenges. No limits to the number of entries for each challenge. This is simply a challenge that helps us stretch our creativity while having fun. 


The first challenge is an "Anything Goes" challenge. I created some cute treat bags to share with my teacher friends at school using a cute owl from Lawn Fawn's Creatures in the Forest. These are super simple because you just cut paper that is as long as the zipper on a ziplock bag then fold and decorate. It would be a fun way to brighten any teacher's day as they head back to school on Tuesday. Since I was creating a little set I laid out everything assembly line style and it made it super quick but still very cute.
