Fun Friday Project

Before I begin I want to thank everyone for your awesome tips on potty training. I am going to try some of those techniques. I will keep you updated. So for today I have this little project to share. Last night I went to Micheal's and saw this adorable fabric circle box in the dollar spot. I thought it would be cute to alter so I took it home. As I was going to put it away in my "to alter" area I thought I am going to make something with it now. I always buy things to alter and never get around to actually doing them. So I put in on my desk and started thinking. Since one of my girlfriends just had a baby I thought it would make a cute container for a baby onesie. So I started with stamping this precious Elzybells spring chick on a circular nesties die cut. I colored it in with my Copics. I adhered a scalloped die cut to it and then I placed it in the middle of a big prima flower. Then I added a cute Making Memories butterfly button. This is all adhered to a strip of Scenic Route patterned paper. The inside is adorned with more pattern paper. The onesie is rolled up and tucked inside. I then punched out a tag and stamped the sentiment. I added some silver cord and tied it to the onesie tag. To complete the project I added another prima flower to the tag for a punch of color. I hope she likes it.
Have a great weekend.
Hugs,


PS I will be posting the Q&A sometime this weekend along with a template of my paper cup design. Make sure to check back if you are interested.

This could be the cutest alterable I have ever seen! I need to get imaginative when I see "schtuff" in the dollar spots.
