Scribble Shop Challenge Project

by Johnnie Collier

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?

 SUPPLIES IN BOX:

Metallic Stamp Pad

Dress It Up Embellishments

Mod Podge

Stencil

Raffia

Glass Gems

Motivational Quotes

Popsicle Sticks

Colored Pencils

OTHER SUPPLIES I USED:

Vintaj Natural Brass Cable Chain

Crop a Dile

Eyelets

Sizzix 3D Flower Die

 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.

To finish, I sealed the rectangle with Mod Podge.  When that dried, I hole punched the pendant at the top and added the 2 eyelets for attaching to the chain.

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.

Here is the heart charm, which I ended up painting with gold acrylic paint, along with the pink pigment ink.  I punched a hole at each end to add the jumprings.
