MFT Superstar entry - Innovation Master

Hey my crafty friends...

The annual MFT Superstar challenge is on again and I always love to try and think out of the box and create something unique for the Innovation master category....

This year my entry is an adventure backpack full of a treasure map, mountain lipgloss holder, maze compass and a card with a spinning box inside!!

This project really needs the video visual for you to see how it all works so please check out the video linked below.....



The backpack was all made by measure and cut and I added a "stitched fishtail sentiment strip" die cut with the sentiment from the "adorable adventures" stamp set


I made the backpack buckles using a die out of the "fold up tags" set...

The backpack has magnets inside creating a magnetic closure so it stays shut keeping all the surprise goodies inside!

Open up the backpack and pull out all the pieces included...


The treasure map - I cut a rectangle of desert storm cardstock, stamped on some images from the "adorable adventures" stamp set, coloured them in with Copic markers, added a white pen adventure trail and then used some distress oxide ink in the colour Ground espresso around the edges which I ripped. 


Compass - The compass base and chain is made using "stitched circle stax" and I added an interactive maze with spheres all inside the circle shaker pouch....
The arrow is from the  "tag builder blueprints 5" and the letters are done by die cutting "bottlecap letters" and inking with some distress oxide ink in carved pumpkin!!

Mountain lipgloss holder - I die cut "snow-capped mountains" in white and green cardstock and layered them all together to create a base for the "lip balm window and frame" "lip balm pouch" with a lipgloss inside for a little gift!!

Onto the card with spinning box inside.....


The front I decorated with a fun spooky scene...
I started with a base of cardstock that I inked up with some distress oxide inks - Speckled Egg, Mustard Seed, Carved Pumpkin and Ground Espresso!!

I then added some elements using the "slimline grassy hills", "spring scene builder" and "haunted house" dienamics....

Images from the "adorable adventures" and "halloween hoo" stamp sets all coloured with Copic markers!! The card also features a magnetic closer keeping it closed before opening to find the surprise spinning box inside......

When you open up the card this is what it looks like.....


You unfold all the box and it stays together with magnetic closures.... 

The box is able to spin around so you can see all the different scenes around the edges!!

Pattern paper is from MFT 6x6 paper pad - Plaid patterns


I used the same distress oxide ink blend to create panels for each of the scenes on the box along with images from the "adorable adventures" stamp set and a "spooky fence"!!



Once you have finished looking around all the edges of the spinning box it can all be folded flat again so that the card can close back up....


Here is a closer look at the maze compass....


And a closer look at the mountain lipgloss holder....


I hope you have enjoyed this adventure project as much as I enjoyed creating it....

It was so much fun to try and think of some different ways to use MFT products and create a fun adventure for a friends gift!! 

Thankyou so much for stopping by and checking out my entry, 
big hugz Ashlee.
