Salt Lake City Door Prize

Hi all!
I am back from visiting with SCS friends in SLC. It was a BLAST!
I told you all before I left that I would share my door prize with you and here it is.
First, my concept: I was going to alter a frame and small container to fill with stamping goodies. When I was searching my drawers for pretty floral stamps to use, I saw my stamp set that has the 4 seasons in it: Spring, Summer Autumn and Winter. I had a light bulb moment and decided to make a 4 seasons door prize. I chose stamp sets that enveloped each season and set out to make 4 different panels that can be changed throughout the season. My frame has a 4 X 4 opening with frosted glass beyond the 4 inch opening. Each panel's full size is 7 1/2 X 7 1/2. I stamped a decorative 4 X 4 square center for each panel. I decided to sew on each panel as well (big surprise huh) LOL. I then embellished each panel as well as adding a tag with the season.
The tag was made again with my sewing machine, chipboard and patterned paper. I made 4 pockets out of patterned paper and stamped each season on a piece of paper and stuck one season in each of the pockets. This was my hint at what was inside. :)
I needed a box to place the extra panels in, so I used some Cosmo Cricket Gretel patterned paper to alter a box and stuck the extra panels in that. Then, I stamped each season on a piece of patterned paper (4 1/4 X 5 1/2) and placed it in a clear envelope. Behind that panel, I placed embellishments that fit that season. I added pastel colored velvet brads and buttons in the spring envelope. I placed bright colored velvet brads and buttons in the summer envelope. For the winter envelope I added Heidi Swapp snowflake ghost shapes. In the autumn envelope, I added leaf brads, and a mix of other mixed metallic embellishments.
I placed the panels and embellishment envelopes in the box. I placed the frame on top of the box and then but a piece of patterned paper 8 X 8 to lay on top of the frame to hide what was underneath. Then I used a piece of 5/8 inch chocolate grosgrain to wrap it all up in.
The hostess of the gathering, Kristin, won my door prize. I hope she enjoys it. :)
