FALL FRENZY BEGINS TODAY AT COCONUTS!!!!

Happy Wednesday all!!! Here it is, the first day of October and that means today is the start of Fall Frenzy at Coconut Scrapshop - whoohoo!!!! And, I had the honor of being the first DT member to post a challenge so I thought I would also share it with you all!! It is different than what I normally post - for one, there is no *gasp* stamping - well, except for the sentiment!! But, I love the way it turned out! Remember the gift set I showed you yesterday? Well, I enjoyed making that so much that I decided that would be perfect for my 3d challenge - yep, the first challenge is to make something 3d! The guidelines to play along are posted on the Coconut site so if you want to play along, get on over there and check it out - there are going to be fabulous giveaways this week! And, don't forget - the big winner at the end of the week will be invited to be the guest DT for the month of November AND get a FREE kit!!!! Okay, so let's get to the project, lol!!! This yummy designer paper is from Black Market Society of which I proud to say I am also a DT member for - this line is called Imported Rhythms and I love the colors, they really do remind me of fall!! The big flower on the front of the box is actually cut out from one sheet of the DP, mounted on Chocolate Chip card stock, and then popped up on dimensionals - of course, I DID add a little Build-a-brad in the center, I could not resist! And, the leaves are little die cuts that I sprinkled all over the front and the tag, which is the sentiment from my new Fall stamp set Happy Blessings, now available TODAY in the new Holiday mini - whew! so much excitement all in one day!!! This next picture shows the box and the four cards I designed to go inside the box (click on the pic for a close-up). Each of the four cards is a little bit different, but all are designed with a fall theme in mind! Lots of die cuts used on these - I so had a good time playing!!! And, all kinds of hardware too! Here is a close-up of the two cards that are done with a base of Chocolate Chip: I just had a blast doing the leaves on the trees (ready made die cut) and I have these fabulous brads shaped like leaves that I just had to use! The sentiment is again from the Happy Blessings Set and I used my Small Oval Punch to cut it out! Here is a close-up of the two cards with a base using More Mustard Card stock - I just love this color, it screams fall!!! Again, both are a little bit different but carry through with the Fall theme! The brads are different too, just love these little square brads, too fun!! So, this is the 3d sample I made for the challenge - I really hope you all go over to Coconuts and play along, it is going to be such a fun week! Till tomorrow - smooches all!!

These last two little boxes of goodies you have made are just wonderful. Is there a "recipe" someplace for the box--a template or something? You are so clever you probably made it up yourself. Anyway, its stunning!! And a perfect little container to use for a small gift of cards to someone.
