Now let us get started on our new challenge...
Today we are having a challenge that requires you to make something that's not a card...
The theme is ...

'Make a Gift - Anything but a card'

This means we don't want to see any cards this time, we want you to make something that you would give as  the main gift.
This can be for Christmas, Halloween, Birthdays, Christenings, etc....the choice is yours, you can produce anything as long as its not a card. This is not a hard challenge but may require you to think for a few moments. There are lots of things that you can make, altered books, notebooks, gift jars, gift boxes, altered candles.....etc. 

Do you want some fabulous inspiration to get those mojos working then take a look below and see what my design team has produced for you. Don't forget to call across to their blogs and check out how the projects were made and leave them some special comments.
