Iron Craft ’14 Challenge #1 – Three

Welcome to another year of Iron Craft challenges! I hope you are all looking forward to a year of crafty goodness. Just a few reminders before we announce the challenge since we have some first timers with us. Finished projects should not be posted until the reveal day (in your time zone). You are welcome to post in progress photos though. Have fun with the challenge themes, but your project should fit the theme somehow. Finally, I highly encourage everyone to comment on each other’s projects on Flickr, it really makes it more fun for everyone. On to the challenge…

Today marks the third anniversary of Iron Craft! Yes, three years of posing crafty challenges! I know you are all trying to think of an anniversary gift for us, so this week’s challenge is based on the traditional and modern third anniversary gifts. The traditional gifts for a third anniversary are leather and the modern gifts are crystal. So, for your challenge create something using any one or more of those materials in your project. We’ll make it slightly easier and say for leather you can use leather, suede, vinyl or any leather look material, for crystal we’ll allow crystal, rhinestones, glass or beads. These materials do not have to be the only ones used in your project, but should be a stand-out part of it.

Here’s some ideas to get you thinking and as always there are more on our Pinterest board.
This is a little bit of a toughie, but you are here for a challenge, right?!
