We're Off To See The Wizard!

I'm joining in with the Faber-Castell's September Take the Challenge with Mou. I love Mou's style and I've learned a lot from her on their blog. All the artists there are fab and really helpful. I love the gelatos and use them whenever I can. This month's challenge is to make something in less than 30 minutes. This little gift box definitely qualifies—it took less than fifteen, even with fussing with the washi.

It started as a kraft jewelry box and I added a gelato sky and clouds, and used gel medium to glue on an Oz die cut from I've had it for awhile, as I tend to pick up Oz things when I see them. This needed glued down, but they carry stickers as well from Paper House Productions. I had to go back in and color more sky in spots after gluing. I added some blue gingham washi tape to the box lid edges and called it a day!

I'm planning to use it for a gift, but since I looovvee The Wizard of Oz, I don't know if I can part with it. They look so happy!

Join me in the Challenge with Mou this month and check out the Faber-Castell blog for great inspiration!

Happy Wednesday!


  1. What a fun box, Chark! I love anything from the Wizard of Oz, and your Gelato background is perfect with it! Love how you used the checked Washi, too!

    1. Yay for Oz--thanks for commenting on the blog, Barb, means a lot!


I love hearing from my crafty friends!
