1474501_10202693550406695_1756452941285093743_n Hi! It’s another challenge day- we’re continuing with Fancy Pants and Add A Little Dazzle to bring some fun bright projects to hopefully inspire you to grab some metal and paper products and get crafting. The Challenge is all about gifts packaging. Boxes, parcels, anything! So, I went a little different.. popped to my local McDonalds and asked for a take-out coffee cup and created this!photo 1-49 I’ve used the MEology papers from Fancy Pants Gorgeous,bright and fun designs. I’ve used some of the stickers from the pack & the really gorgeous corrugated card. Add to that some Add A Little Dazzle Scarlet Red & Perfect Peacock 55203072I used the cup as a pattern & created the corrugated metal cuff part by running the metal through a crimper tool . It’s a lovely sound hearing the metal crimping!! You could add sweets, coffee, a gift card, pretty much anything, and for a coffee lover, it’s an ideal gift! photo 2-49To win prizes, pop to the Fancy Pants Blog & the Add A Little Dazzle blog and leave a comment. For an extra chance to win, leave a comment here too. To play along wit the challenge (& you don’t have to have metal or Fancy Pants products to do that), post your link for Challenge 47 to here. Hope you are enjoying the projects- it’s been brilliant fun using the Fancy Pants products with the craft metal sheets!

See you soon, xx

    Very clever! I haven’t used my crimper in a while – the band is so cute!

    I’m impressed your McDonald’s gave you the coffee cup. You sure jazzed it up, so darn cute and colorful.
