5 items + Your Creative Touch = 1 beautiful creation


We've been sharing a fun challenge we've given our Design Team - to create a project with just 5 G45 supplies! Today, we will be sharing more projects that rise to the occasion and will leave you inspired. Tati Scrap shares a Botanical Tea birthday reminder book. Then, Yumi Muraeda shows how to create an altered box and tags with few supplies but many different collections. You will love the projects today, we can't wait to share them with you!

Did you know that we LOVE when you share your projects on our Facebook page? We love to see how our G45ers take our collectons and make so many different and beautiful projects. Just like this An ABC Primer layout by Amy Kluchesky that's perfect for Back to School. We love the techniques she applies on this beautiful page. We hope you will share today!

The first project is by Tati Scrap using 5 G45 Supplies, but bursting forth with absolute beauty! We love this idea for keeping up with birthdays.

"I have made a Birthday Reminder with a Large Tag Ivory. It is very useful to remember always the birthdays of our family and friendly. The numbers of each section represent the months of the year." ~Tati Scrap

Oh so pretty!

Wonderful projects, it's a amazing what you can do with paper and glue these. Pieces of art.

It would be difficult to chose which creation is lovelier or more interesting. They were all amazing.

This blog always has the most amazing projects!

Those tag boxes are phenomenal!

Gorgeous projects! Truly inspiring!

very beautiful projects.

I love when one of my project appears on this blog!!!

L O V E all of them ! ! !

I love the challenge of limiting supplies. Sometimes the sheer volume of material available can hamper creativity. I'll have to remember this idea the next time I hit a creative wall.

Fabulous projects. I love them all.

What elaborate creations! Thanks.

Stunning projects !! I especially love Tati's accordian book, stunning and very inspirational !!

Awesome ideas!

Tati and Yumi, WOW!!! I love both of your projects, very inspiring, thanks for sharing these amazing ideas with us. You girls rock :)

Yumi's boxes are magnificent! Tati's birthday reminder is beautifully crafted! And I love how Amy used the tiniest scraps of paper in her quilted looking sampler. Now we see ways to use even the smallest bits of paper, so they need not be wasted!

Lvoe the tag box idea and all of the tags.

I really love these projects. The tag boxes are fantastic!

I love these projects...I just wish the designers would provide tutorials on how exactly they made these great projects. Love the book boxes and I just happen to own one I purchased from one of your suppliers...so guess what I'll be making, lol.

These tag boxes are gorgeous! This goes to show us that we
CAN create with a few items, THANKS!! :)

Beautiful boxes and the birthday reminder is such a great idea...thanks.

So various projects for the same creation! Love it!

Love the boxes, they would be great for a little hostess gift.

I am just wondering - where are the instructions for these tag boxes?
