May Element A Day: Week 3

Just put up a new thread. Feel free to continue posting there:


This designer challenge will run the entire month of May. The goal is to make an element a day. If you don't have time everyday to participate, that's okay; there will be wiggle room to play catch up. Everyday there will be a new theme for you to use, although some themes might repeat at some point. Before we start you can give some thought to what color palette you would like to use and what you'd like to do with your finished product, which should be 31 elements. (Here's a link to my pinterest board for color palettes.)

In this thread you may post:

  1. Questions and comments on completing each element.
  2. Finished elements and/or templates. You may of course post small thumbnail images if you are saving the finished product for something.
  3. I'll post a new thread each week so that things don't get too out of hand.
  4. Don't worry if you're behind or starting in the middle, feel free to share whatever you make.

Could someone please explain what is meant with crease?

For creased, can it be a folded element instead?

I made one of the ribbon shaped clips precut on a straight line, just to make it easier for people. I also have a staple and grommet in there.

I suck at that whole folded ribbon thing.. this is my first attempt. Still a lot of room for improvement.

I am gonna be making more for these 2 days. I am on my way to go see my new niece at the hospital so I have to cut everything short! smiley

Day 15 Fasteners

Okay, I am a little late with these, but here are my final 2 for last week

I love the Pink Ribbon themed elements!

Here is my word art for the 16th:


This looks like fun!
But what is the purpose of these elements?
Are they going to be 'assets'?
Or used in a kit or something?

Feel free to interpret things as you like. There aren't any police here who will say "that's not creased"!

@Els: Some people are just playing around, some are working towards finished kits. You can see the results of our paper challenge here.

Here's my creased tag:

And my fabric for tomorrow:
