Play along at the Festive Friday Challenge. DT members provide written or video instructions for their projects each challenge! Find us @festivefridaychallenge or festivefridaychallenge.com. New challenges every other Friday! #cardchallenge

Hey You! Boss…!

Maybe you are one, maybe you work for one, maybe you live with one… We all got ’em. Bosses! Our latest challenge at  Festive Friday is celebrating Boss’ Day and we challenge you to think outside the box. We’ve all got different “bosses” in our life, why not show them that you appreciate them by making a little handmade something?!

Using the Inspo List, grab at least three items and create a project to link to the challenge. There’s a wide range of ideas to choose from, so even if you’re not feeling the “Boss’ Day” part of the challenge, you can still play along!
