Custom Crops Mystery Challenge

A few weeks ago I received this "mysterious" box in the mail from Custom Crops.

Inside there were some special instructions - "Your mission, should you choose to accept it...!"

When I opened the box I found these items - quite an unusual assortment. The challenge was to create a craft project using the mystery items

So what do you think I made? The rules were simple:

1. No designer would know what the mystery items were until the items arrived on each designers doorstep (in the infamous mystery box!).
2. Each designer could keep all of the mystery items once the challenge was completed.

3. Some part of each mystery item had to be included in the finished project.
4. Designers were permitted to use other craft products/tools in completing their project.

5. Designers were encouraged to "think outside of the box" and to come up with the most unique and innovative project.

Here is a LINK to the page on the Custom Crops site where you can find more details about the challenge.

The big "reveal" is on Monday, August 17th - be sure to stop by the Custom Crops site to see what all of the designers created. In the meanwhile - here is a tiny "sneak peek" at my project...

I can't wait to see what all of my fellow designers made - the challenge was a lot of fun and it will be interesting to see how we all incorporated this odd assortment of items into our projects!
