A Spoon Full of Sugar -challenge 15

Thank you to everyone who entered last weeks challenge over at A Spoon Full of Sugar, it's wonderful to drop by your blogs and look at your creations. This week we would like you to make 'Anything but a card', now this was one of my ideas but when it came down to it there were so many different things I wanted to make, but couldn't find the inspiration to put it to work! In the end I played safe and made a door/wall hanger for Lillie to give to her friend (Ashleigh, you'd never have guessed would you?!) along with her present when she goes to her birthday party at the weekend.
Before (a freebie cd game that came with one of the girls happy meals)
and After

I enjoy making these as you can dress them up or down as much as you like, and it's a great way of giving a personalized gift.

So onto this weeks prize which comprises of buttons, brads and ribbons and look gorgeous, these have been kindly given by Lana from Dottycrafts. Remember you can use ANY STAMPED IMAGE you like, so go get creative and leave us a comment so we can come and see your 'anything but a card' creations, I can't wait to visit and hopefully pick up some ideas (wink, wink!). If you need a little inspiration to get you started pop over to the blog (link on the right) and check out the other DT ladies work, you won't be disappointed they are all fantastic!!

I think this is fantastic, but I've been trying to find out how to make my own, with little success. Did you use a tutorial?
