Guest Designers - Challenge #20

Welcome to more inspiration for Challenge #20! Make sure you visit our wonderful November Guest Designers' blogs and give them some love! For a full list of the 2014 guest designers, please click the Guest Designers TAB above. We are starting to wind down our guest designer program here at Hoarders. After today, we have only 2 more guest designer posts! We will be sharing a new format for 2015...but you will have to wait to find out what it is!

Challenge #20 Box it Up!
Your challenge is to create some sort of altered box. You can create a box from scratch, or you can alter a pre-made box. Your box can be made of paper, wood, chipboard, plastic, or metal. As long as you dig into your hoard to decorate a box, you have met the challenge requirements! The box does not have to be used as a box...it can be used as home decor or for any purpose you can imagine. Let's box it up! 

You still have a week to play in Challenge #20! You have until midnight PT November 30th to link up your creation. CLICK HERE to see the challenge post and LINK your project!


Here are the November Guest DT creations for Challenge #20. Check out what these amazing artists did with our Box It Up challenge! They have outdone themselves on this challenge! These altered containers are some of the most impressive we have seen here at Hoarders! Stunning work, Guest DT! Thanks for sharing!
















A heartfelt THANK YOU  to our November Guest Designers! These ladies span all age groups and come from all over the world! We are blessed to have them join us for the month! They created some AMAZING boxes! Please enjoy visiting their blogs!
