New Beginnings Swap Hosted by Scrapdaworld

For this swap, participants were in a group of 4 and required to create:

  • A 3D Memorydex Decorated with Layers + Answer all Questions Prompted by Tmika

  • 1 Planner/Charm Dangle with at Least 5 Elements

  • 1 Tablespoon of a Shaker Mix

I decided to use the Lilac Avenue collection by Teresa Collins to create a project. I used a Lori Whitlock Mailbox Card file found in the Silhouette store (ID #313291). I also used the 'XOXO' file by Teresa Collins for the from of the mailbox.

To turn the box card into a memorydex card, O altered the design to have a longer back layer that would allow me to punch holes using my Heidi Swapp punch. I accented the layers with purple zig zag stiching. I also added flowers and stickers covered in stickles.

For my dangle, I used beads and charms from my stash to add to a paperclip. I used a looper tool to create them.

The sequins mix was a vast mix of Buttons Galore sequins and Cartwright Sequins. I placed those in lavender heart containers.

For packing, I placed the swap contents into a Dollar Tree cosmetic pouch that I embroidered with each group member's initial.
