It's review preview Friday already! Where has the time gone? I absolutely adore this C.C. Designs Eric and Chrissy go prehistoric set. We are hoping that Christine will add some more dinosaurs! (Hint hint) It is super cute and you can use it for lots of fun stuff. I needed a birthday present for a two year old! He is in my nursery class at church and his number one love right now is fruit snacks! I decided to figure out a cute way to package his fruit snacks. I needed a cute box and looked through my stuff and found this template. Girls when you eat fast food, look at the containers as a template! This was an A&W container that had cheese curds in it! I carefully unhooked all the edges and then traced the piece on my papertrey kraft cs. I carefully cut it out just inside the line so I wouldn't have lines showing. It takes some patience but it was well worth it. After it was cut out, I scored it using my score pal. Easy peasy! I needed a window so the fruit snacks would show through. I traced and cut out a window and then added acetate for a finished look.
I stamped it and colored it with copics. Here is the fun part! Notice the cute yellow spew stuff coming out of the volcano? Hee hee, I had some clear cello filler from the dollar store but wanted it colored! Hello, can we say airbrush? I airbrushed it yellow and then taped a bundle to the back! I needed a nest for my bird at the top and all I had was colors that didn't match and then white. I used white curly ribbon and airbrushed some green and brown to it after curling it! Easy peasy and now we have a nest! Mr. Pterodactyl is taped to a piece of curled wire works to get him up above the nest.
Now guess what else? I get to give away the $5 gift certificate to All That Scraps this week too! Leave a comment on this post and tell us some creative ways you have used your stamping to package fun gifts. You have until Tuesday morning and then I will draw a winner! If you will leave an email address using words for dot and at in them I will email you if you win! Have a super weekend and enjoy the possibilities!
