Colour INKspiration Challenge #22 and #23 Blog Hop

Hi and welcome to another Colour INKspiration challenge. We have not one but two challenges for you this time. They will both run for 3 weeks and you can enter just one or both. I had intended to make a project for each but it has been one of those crazy months where I am overstretched (like most people) and have a terrible head cold. Turns out it is very hard to take photos and blow your nose/sneeze/ cough at the same time! Oh woe is me!

So onto the colours for #22.

Can't wait to see what you do with those colours. I love the inspiration pic too. The project that I did get made was for these gorgeous colours - #23.

So this is what I came up with. A cute box to hold a quick and easy, yet sweet, Christmas brooch.

I used Bronwyn Eastley's Christmas Chocolate Holder tutorial to make these. This holder is such a great way to package a small gift, decoration or chocolate. Perfect for those little gifts where you want to show your appreciation without buying an extravagant gift.

Instead of popping a chocolate inside, I added this cute brooch that I made.

So easy! I die cut a stitched circle from felt and glued on some silver metallic thread and added one of the Stitched Felt Embellishments. Oh and a wooden star too!

Glue on a brooch back and you are good to go! I added an extra bit of cardstock inside the box to secure the brooch to but ... sorry ..... sneezing won out over a pic of that!
