Small wood box, rick-rack, brown, satin ribbon from local craft store.
- Cover the inside and top edges of the box with the Bewitching patterned paper. The outside of the box is then covered with Honey Bunch patterned paper.
- Then cut a 3/4” strip of the Lovey Dovey patterned paper and cover the bottom section of the box.
- Next, cut another 3/4” strip using the Cutie Pie patterned paper, this time use a scalloped border punch along one of the edges before adhering it to the box. Tie some ribbon in between the two strips of patterned paper and form a bow in the front of the box.
- Use the striped border from the Fascinating Sticker Book to finish off the top edge of the box.
- Cover two tulip Chipboard Elements with the Sugar Pie patterned paper and attach them to the box as shown. Embellish the rest of the box with stick pins, a chipboard flower, a brad and tiny letter stickers, as seen in photo. TIP: To allow the box to sit level attach a strip of leftover chipboard from the Topsiders border set to the bottom of the box.
- Apply alphabet stickers and chipboard to the front of the box to spell out your title.
- To create the head and wings please see attached diagram.
- Once your pieces are cut out, cover them with with the remainder of the Honey Bunch patterned paper. Embellish the edges of the pieces with rick-rack.
- Attach the wings to the top of the box and then add some small circle stickers from the Fascinating Sticker Book.
- Wrap the satin ribbon around the chicks head, add the beak, (see instruction sheet for pattern) eyes (Chipboard Alphabet commas) and flower to complete the chicks head. To attach the chick to the box use the rectangle Topsider shape. Score it 1” down so it forms a sort of hinge, glue the 1 inch section to the back of the chick's head. Then glue the remainder of the flap to the back of the box.
Everyone on the team was asked to answer a few questions about themselves for the Blog Hop, so you could get to know us a little better. Here are my answers. :)
1. Where did you grow up? Do you still live there?
- I grew up in England, my family and I moved to America when I was sixteen. I've moved around quite a bit since then, but Central Florida is my home now. I'm completely "American-ized" now - Not even an accent!!!! :)
- Mostly taking care of the kids, during the day, watching a little TV in the evening , then playing with my Pink Paislee goodies at night.
- Shoes, shoes, shoes!!! Why? Because!!!
- Kate Nash
- It's not on now, but I always make sure Big Brother is recorded!
- Love and Basketball and When Harry Meet Sally. I know that's two movies but I couldn't decide!
- That's a tough one........hmm, I'd have to say the Topsiders chipboard. I seem to use them on everything!
- My Exacto knife.
- Cleaning the house!!! (lol) Seriously.... designing and making wood crafts, cross stitching, drawing, anything that's creative really.
- Have fun! Once you've got the basics down, it's completely up to you! Whatever you do your family will love the results, they are "the stars" after all!!!
- I never know how to answer this question! Even more so now, that I haven't done that many layouts lately. Whether it's a altered piece or a layout, I guess I would say my style is usually "playful and fun."
