OTWC #55

It's been a busy week here on the blog but now I have this week's Off The Wall Craftiness challenge!  This week we do have a bit of a different spin on things.......We have a new sponsor:  Unkamen Supplies!  You have got to go check out their beautiful chainmaille jewelry kits!!  Ralph from Unkamen Supplies graciously offered up a kit to the DT to make and showcase on our blogs for this weeks challenge. 

Here is the inspiration photo for this week.




The bracelet I chose has some color and doesn't exactly match the colors this week so I chose to make a box that IF I were to give this as a gift, I could easily package it up!  (This baby is not going anywhere but on my arm this weekend at a wedding!)  This is a mini pizza box.....have always wanted to make one.  You can google instructions or go to SplitcoastStampers.  They have tutorials and videos for everything!



Now I realized after I took my photos that I didn't take one of the box OPEN.  Oh well.  :)  I did embellish my belly band and this helps to keep the box closed.  I also made a bigger box to hold a gift card for the wedding we are going to this weekend.  (I'll show that later on another post)  This box is 3 x 3 and perfect for jewelry.



I just think this color is fantastic!  I have lots of summery things that I can wear this with........of all jewelry, I love bracelets the most!  Now, let's talk about how easy this was.  It took me less than an hour to assemble this bracelet and Ralph sends you everything in the kit to make it!  Customer Service?  Top Notch! 

We would love to hear what you think of our new sponsor.......the winner this week gets a Gift Certificate to Unkamen Supplies Etsy store!  (This link takes you to the kits available......just gorgeous!)
