Trade & Made: Inside the Box

Last week, Laura and I shared the fun project that we’re doing with each other, for your double DIY benefit! The long and the short of it is that we sent each other a mystery box filled with various fun supplies.  We’re making a DIY out of at least four of the items.  This week, we’re each showing the items that we got in our boxes, and next week we’ll share a DIY that we conjured up with the supplies.

I received a plethora of amazing crafty goodness, don’t you agree?

As you look through the supplies, what jumps out at you?  Anything off the top of your head that you’d make?

I already have a pretty good idea of what I’ll make, I’ll just have to do a few trial runs this week to be sure that it actually works before trying to convince you guys to do it too!

Have a FUN Tuesday!


p.s. what did you do for the holiday weekend? Anything exciting?

    I actually use glass milk bottles as vases all over my kitchen…Very curious to see what you whip up with all these goodies!

    Oh my gosh can’t wait to see what you create! I have no idea what I’d make…I’m not nearly creative enough!

      I don’t know if it takes creativity as much as it takes sitting in your dining room and staring at the materials for hours :)

    I thought…use the dowels to hang bunting from one milk bottle to the other. The cardstock and felt bunting can be hung by the clips from the ribbon and decorated with the craft paint, glitter and confetti. Fun!

    I love this idea! These are some of my most favorite crafting supplies! A little bit of glitter and some craft paint and you can do anything! Can’t wait to see what you make.
