Ok, so today, I think I totally messed up...lol
Today is Would You Ever Guess Wednesday over at
On WYEGW, we are supposed to use any
image EXCEPT, the main image on the page.
Today we were also to use either 3 tags
or a rosette on our project.
Well I totally concentrated on the rosette piece
and forgot that I was not supposed to
use the main images. I sure hope Erica
does not fire me for not
following the rules...LOL
the girls at work. Everyone loved it and one of
the other ladies in the office has a new grandson
due next month and she asked me if I could
make the same animals on sticks so that
she could but them in a floral center piece.
I told her sure I could do that!!
This is what I came up with.
All the rosettes were cut at 2" from page 23
of the book. I cut 6 pieces for each rosette.
I used a Marvy Uchida Jumbo Scalloped
Circle Punch for the center piece which
I then embossed using the Cuttlebug
Spots and Dots folder.
All the pieces were inked with
Distress Ink in Mowed Lawn
and Broken China.
All animals were cut from Create a Critter
except the Tiger, he is from Animal Kingdom.
Most of them were cut at 2.5"
All the faces were stamped with
various Peachy Keen face stamps.
I added some ribbon from Michaels to each one.
Now I just did not want to hand them to her,
so I decorated a recycled drink mix container
to put them in. This is what I started with:
I took off the packaging and this is what was left.
I have been saving these and knew some
day I would have a use for them...LOL
I originally only made one, and put all
six in the same container. She liked it so much
she asked me to make her two more!!
I put some little glass pebbles in the
bottom to weigh them down.
I had so much fun making these and finally
using my Ribbons and Rosettes cartridge.
They were alot of work, but turned out so cute!!
Plus I got paid for making these!!
Here are some close ups of the animals:
