Happy Thursday! It's day two of the Core'dinations and Peachy Keen Stamps blog hop, and you should have arrived here from the Core'dinations blog, but if not - make sure to head back to the Peachy Keen blog. Just in case you get lost along the way; I will also have today's complete blog hop list at the end of my post.
For my project today, I embellished a gable box that could be used for a gift box, BUT I will be using it for my daughter's "good behavior prizes." She has a few things that we chart daily, and if she gets enough smiley faces during the week - she gets a little treat. It could be as big as a little toy or as small as staying up a bit past her bedtime. Instead of her asking me all week..."what's my prize this week," I thought she could start drawing her prize weekly. We'll see how it goes...
I am in love with the new fairies from this month's Peachy Keen Stamp of the Month kit. I paper pieced and colored my little flower fairy. You probably know this already, but just in case you don't...you should color everything prior to gluing your paper pieced sections. I tried to be really careful, but there were a few places where glue seeped out and my Copics won't color on top of the glue. I used my Cameo to cut out the little artisanal shape out of the polka dot embossed Core'dinations cardstock. I also sanded it very lightly to make the polka dots stand out even more.
