Here is what I did with my MYSTERY BOX

I began with an idea of creating a little box that my son could have in the back seat of the Jeep that he could have a few car type games in. So this is what I came up with....

Car Fun Box

Stamp sets used: Graphic Borders, Splash Me a Little! alphabets, Neighborhoods)



Then once my box was decorated, I decided to create a few things to put inside.

First I came up with a fun magnetic alphabet board. I took piece of adhesive magnetic paper and applied a sheet of copy paper to its sticky side. Then I stamped the checkerboard edges using the Graphic Borders stamp set. I ten stamped all of my alphabets from the Royal Flush alphabet set. I made duplicates of some of the vowels and some of the more common other letters like "S" & "T".

Next I wanted to come up with a "car bingo" concept so I designed a VERY SIMPLE bingo card that would fit inside my box. "Spencer" is my son's name so that's why it says "Spencer's Car Bingo" on it.

This is where you get to interpret the blocks. Here's just a few ideas for the card above...
  • K - find something that begins with "K"
  • 3 cars - find 3 of something
  • cone - find something you can eat
  • leaf - find something green
  • girl - find a woman or girl
  • J - find something that starts "J"
  • hearts - find a heart shape
  • phone - find a phone
Here's a second bingo card...

Here's how I might interpret this next card...
  • cat - find some kind of animal
  • coffee - find something you drink
  • house - find a white house
  • boat - find something that floats
  • leaf - find something that grows
  • hearts - find 3 of something the same
  • 2 girls - find 2 girls together
  • W - find something that starts with "W"
I hope you have enjoyed my little box of creativity today!
