Yup . . . I know it's been a long time. Yup, it's been awhile. That's what happens when you have a daughter get engaged, plan a wedding, get married, and have to do it all over again for your brother. I wouldn't trade it for the world!
Yup, it's been a long time.
Anyway, thought I'd share this little project that I did for a Peachy Keen Challenge. It's made out of a toilet paper roll and other odds and ends. Let me explain . . .
I took a toilet paper roll and made about six 1/2 inch cuts on both ends and folded the pieces into the roll. I did that to shorten it a bit and to give it a more stable base. Then I cut a piece of black harlequin scrapbook paper (had it a long time so not sure what kind but I think I got it from Hobby Lobby) and wrapped it around the roll. I then made random cuts in the top piece to make the edges look raggedy. Then I wrapped some baker's twine in red cherry several times around the top piece and tied it into a bow. Next I cut a round piece of red cardstock and adhered it to the bottom. Then I cut two hearts and their shadows from the Doodlecharms Cricut cartridge. I flipped one of them and layered them on their shadows of red gingham paper.
Now, the good part! I used the Corny Faces stamp set from Peachy Keen Stamps to stamp the cute faces. I just love the buck teeth!!! Anyway, I added some pink chalk to the cheeks and the edges of the white hearts, added faux stitching, and popped them up. Voila!
