My All Crafts Challenge-Currently closed

Currently closed

This is a challenge for all sorts of crafts outside of card making, so feel free to post Jewellery, Knitting, Gifts, Altered Art etc :-)
I will choose projects to showcase throughout the challenge to show the talent out there in blogland and will hold a random draw every couple of months to win prizes.
I encourage you all to visit each others blogs for some fabulous ideas, have fun and make new friends-my only request is you follow, link your creation to the challenge in the comments and have fun! We only have two tiny rules-No cards as this is for all your other creations, and only two of each kind of project please (So you could enter two tags and then two bits of jewellery but not three of any kind)

Gift Box-the template for the box can be found here
 I right clicked with the mouse and then 'copy image', I then opened a word document and then right clicked the mouse and hit 'paste'  this puts the box image into your document, I grabbed the corners of the image and stretched it until it almost filled an A4 page.

This box was printed out on the back of a piece of preprinted card stock. It is easy to cut out around the black outline.  The dotted lines inside need to be scored with a small ball tool and ruler as these are the fold lines.  When cut and scored, fold on all the dotted line and glue each of the four edges.  Punch through the small marked holes with a pokey tool or a Crop-a-dile.  Decorate as desired.

Crafty Ribbons/Fiskars LED canvas

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well. I am here to share a backlit canvas using my Fiskars tools in a rather unusual way. I took the canvas off from the frame and folded it in half to randomly punch across the front of the canvas. I kept the cuttings for later. I then stapled the canvas back onto the frame. Next I stapled muslin fabric across the front of the canvas. I then added Clermont Cotton Lace across the bottom of the canvas as a border. I then got out my flexmarkers and coloured the punched canvas pieces in three complimentary colours. I then asked tiny gems to the centre of each and glued them randomly like flowers across the muslin fabric.

Thank you for visiting and for all your lovely comments!

Beauty and the Beast Sparkling Black Rose Lamp

Hey everyone, I hope you are well. I am here to share a personalised version of the rose in the Beauty in the Beast. (To represent my username sparklingblackrose!) I found a gorgeous velvety rose on etsy, a small bell jar, some silver wire leds with a remote and I got out my mica pigment from my stash.

I drilled a hole into the bottom of the base to make sure the flower stood up unsupported. I then cut away any leaves on the stem which were too wide for the jar. I got out my black mica pigments and painted them onto the edges of the flower petals and let them dry.
I then arranged the lights on the base and around the flower, lastly attaching the end of the lights to the top of the jar with a tiny bit of white tack.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
