I wanted to try something new this year and so I came up with the idea to do a series of design challenges. Here's the details for the first one!
Go to the new Freebies section of my website and download the box template I just uploaded. The file contains 3 pages: an instruction page, a blank template and a printable orange and pink heart box template (my gift to you) as shown above. Your challenge is to design a Valentine's Day themed box using the blank template provided. That's it. You can use any materials you want (fabric, glitter, glue, paper, pipe cleaners, etc...) and you can design it in a graphics program if you like then print it out and assemble. When you're done, just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with a photo of it using the subject line: "January Design Challenge". You may submit one design per person and anyone can enter so tell your friends or make it a weekend project with the kids! You have until January 31st to email me a submission. On Feb 1st I will sort through the entries, pick my favorite and announce the winner on my blog. The winner will receive a $20 gift certificate for my shop.
- Print page 1 if you want to use your own paper for the box. Just cut and trace it to the paper of your choice. Then cut, score and assemble.
- Print page 2 if you what to draw directly on the blank template, glue things on it, decoupage it, or whatever. Then cut, score and assemble.
- Print page 3 if you just need a box to use for gift giving :)
