Happy Thursday! I have been sick this week (boo), so I haven't spent much time in my craft room. Today is the start of EAD Color Challenge. I was too sick to finish my Scrappy Moms Terrific Tuesday Challenge project, so I decided to combine the challenges into one project. Tada! You know...you could do the same thing and automatically get a 25% off coupon from EAD Designs and possibly win a $20 gift certificate to the EAD Designs store. If you make a Christmas themed project, then you can also link your project to the Scrappy Moms site for a chance to win a stamp set! (Multi-craft-tasking.)
I made a little cupcake box for this week's challenge, but instead of holding a cupcake - it holds an ornament that my daughter and I made last week. Instead of putting the stickers on white cardstock, I decided to use kraft. The combination of the kraft cardstock and the clear backing gives the stickers a faux watercolor sort of look.
|Does it bug anyone else when you can see the pop dots in a picture? That drives me crazy.|
This is what's inside the little box. I found this idea on Pinterest and we tried it out last week. It was really easy and Nicole and I had fun trying to find the exact right amount of paint needed to get a decent thumbprint. Just a quick note/tip...I tried to use glitter glue for their antlers (and it looked a whole lot cuter), but once the glitter glue dried it wouldn't stick to the ornament. I just replaced it with Sharpie...not as cute, but it still worked. I did use glitter glue for their eyes and noses and it seems to be sticking to the acrylic paint just fine.
Thank you so much for stopping by!
