How excited was I when the box of craft supplies from Scribble Shop showed up at my door?! Very… until I opened it. For this challenge, a group of bloggers are to use as many of the supplies in the box as possible to create a project. I am not sure what I expected to be inside, but when I saw what I had to work with, I was unmoved. What was I going to do with a ton of jumbo craft sticks, raffia, colored pencils, marbles, glitter buttons, stencils, pigment ink pad and rub-ons?

OTHER SUPPLIES I USED:
As I pondered the various frames and coasters I could make from these sticks, I was thinking about how I am so inspired to make jewelry right now, and how annoying it was to have to take a break from that for this challenge. That is when the idea came to me to die cut the craft sticks into pendant and charm shapes.
Here is what I did.
For the rectangle shape, I didn’t have a die that was the size I wanted, so I went primitive and used scissors. Sanding takescare of the rough edges that result.
The rose is made from cardstock cut with Sizzix 3-D flower die, with raffia leaves. I am so glad I was forced to try to incorporate raffia. I love it for the rose leaves, and I also tied a piece of it at
the bottom of the pendant.
Big thanks to Scribble Shop, for forcing me to stretch the creativity!
