Boy Elf

Hello and Happy Monday!!
I hope everyone had a
great weekend.  I was pretty
hot here in So. California.
It was around 95 yesterday
and I do not like the heat!!
I had a ton of laundry to do, so that
is how I spent my

Today I have a fun project to share with you.
Before Easter, I started saving the empty
toliet paper rolls.  I had plans to
make bunnies out of them but never
got around to it.  So now I have a bunch
of these rolls lying around, so I decided to
make something for this week's
Peachy Keen Challenge
13-28 :: 3-D Objects :: Wrap It In Ribbon
I made a funny little boy Elf using a file from
I used only his head and arms.
I wrapped the TP roll with some
printed paper from a stack I bought
ages ago!!  I added some ribbon from
3 Girl Jam and My Craft Spot
for his collar and belt.
I embossed his hair using the
Cutllebug Divine Swirls folder.
I also added a little distress in
in Gathered Twigs to his hair.

I used the Wide Eyed Kids Stamps for his face.
And check out my faux stiching!!
I added the stiching using my sketch pens
and my Cameo!!  This was my first time trying
this, but one of my blogger buddies
shared a great video with me that had
step my step instructions. 
The video shows how to add the stiching with te
the print and cut feature, but I just used my sketch pens
and it worked perfectly!!

Not sure yet, what I am going to use my
little elf for.  I could just use him as
decoration, or fill the tube with
candy and use him as a treat!!
