I wrote this post as the Featured Artist at Ideas for Scrapbookers and wanted to share it here.
Our family went camping recently. I thought it would be a lot of fun to have a scavenger hunt while we were there, so I dug through my scrapbook supplies to see what I could put together. It was so fun and easy that I'd like to share it with you.
I started with a kraft-colored bag and a die-cut tree from BasicGrey.
I cut the orange paper into a rectangle slightly smaller than the bag, and then cut the sky paper slightly smaller than that. I cut a random undulating shape on one side of my green rectangle. I inked the edges of all the pieces and then cut out the center of the orange rectangle to save to punch out leaves and make a tag. I added the tree, then punched and inked around 50 leaves and added them to the tree and ground. I adhered all the pieces together and gave it a couple of coats of Mod Podge before adhering it to the bag.
I wasn't sure exactly what items we would find at these particular campgrounds, so I made a very generic list of items to find, added the orange paper and adhered it to the brown. I added a rivet at the top. After a few coats of mod podge had dried, I attached the tag with a random scrap of ribbon. Here's a closeup of the tag:
We had so much fun on our scavenger hunt! Here's Trevor showing off the items in his bag:
I hope this inspires you to create your own scavenger hunt!
