Deadline May 29th, 20ll Midnight Pacific.  Winner will be announced May 31, 2011 here on the blog.

Here is my sample piece as inspiration for you:

I upcycled a vintage cigar box that I bought at a flea market.

I made a fabric flower (machine stitching, handbeading on petals), using a pattern I bought at the craft store but there are many free patterns to be googled online.

I printed out strips of patterned paper from Tangie’s digital kits. The pre-designed papers saved me a lot of time. I used Quickity Split’N Print Vol. 6, Quickity Split’N Print Vol. 4, Quickity Split’N Print Vol. 2 By Tangie, and Quickity Split’N Print Vol. 5

I used StayzOn Ink and stamped Flourishes onto the cigar box and over the adhered printed paper.

I have the word “Treasures” in letter stickers. Also the “Open Here” pin is a found object, as is the bottle cap that I flattened with my Sizzix Big Shot and added bling to the center.

Now it’s your turn! I look forward to seeing your creations.
