Last post for today, folks!
Continuing on with PTI's 6th Anniversary Festivities, the contest today was to use any of the Year Of Flowers sets (because they announced they are releasing dies for ALL of them! YES!)....
My 10-month-old loves to look at photos of her/her sisters, so I laminated a few of them and they stay on the coffee table for her. I got tired of them looking messy, so I figured this was as good a reason as any for a project - cue *the* cutest little file box die ever.
My camera went wonky & I just couldn't get a decent photo of the box....BUT... this'll do. It still gets the point across!
Anyway, I used the file box die by LifeStyle Crafts, and cut it out of Rustic White cardstock. The teeny handle reinforcers are cut from Summer Sunrise cardstock, and the marigolds (from Year Of Flowers: Collection) were stamped & coloured on both sides. After I put the box together, I added Yellow Stickles to the edges of the flowers, because the yellow Copic just wasn't popping enough for my liking....annnnnddd....I couldn't leave it so...UN-sparkly! You'll also notice a smudge on the right hand side of the box... that'd be where said 10-month-old felt she should help - picture the box, all Stickled up, sitting precariously close to the edge of the table, awaiting it's turn to be moved to the windowsill to dry. I may or may not have made the mistake of getting up to put the Stickles away, and there may or may not have been quick-as-a-fox teeny fingers making a grab for said box. Also, there may or may not have been yellow sparkles EVERYWHERE.
Anyway, I wasn't going to re-do the box, since once dry, it wound up on the coffee table easily within reach of said quick fingers...and teething mouth... I'm sure any other moms out there know where I'm coming from!
Well, that's it for me today. I hope you all have a great night!
