On to my contribution...

I’ve been wanting to create a Jane Austen inspired something for a while. What started out as a quest to make a paper bonnet quickly grew to include a hat box, slippers and shoe box.

As a jumping off point I chose ‘Robin’s Egg’ from Core'dinations Signature Series Graphic 45 Lights and coordinated with several papers from Botanical Tea.

The boxes are simple square and round boxes I crafted to size (which is actually pretty darned small). They are embellished with May Arts ribbon and Tresors de Luxe lace.

 The slippers are a variation of a pattern by Glenda Waterworth

And just as with the bonnet, there is a little frilly box to match.

Crafting this entire set was so much fun. And how adorable would these be gifted with a set of Jane Austen novels?! I think I might need to hunt down an Austen fan ;)

Here's my supply list for this set of goodies:
Ribbon from May Arts
