What's Cookin'

I visited Rein's blog today and discovered a fun little challenge that I just had to join.

A dare in the form of a recipe:

I'll tell you the ingredients you have to use, then all you have to do is make the card.

Here are your ingredients:
3 different papers
At least one piece of chipboard
At least 1 button
At least 1 piece of ribbon
optional: 1 extra item/element of your choice

This challenge caught my attention because a couple of  summers ago, my girls and I would create altered book pages with 'recipes' we concocted.  I even blogged about them here and here.
Recipes are a good way to work through a creative block.  Just pull out the ingredients, put them together and see what happens!
Try the one above or try one of ours:
-Create a collage that represent each of the five senses.
-Create a collage using items/pictures/colors for each letter of your first name.
-Create a collage representing the season in which you were born or married.
Let me know if you 'cook up' anything!!

Great creativity! I've got a book of 365 writing prompts and use it all the time with my school kids. I'm thinking you should write a book of crafting prompts!
