Happy Wednesday! Welcome to day three of my week for Growing in Unity.
As I was preparing to start today's project, I was drawing a blank. I was thinking . . . what else can I do for Christmas gifts for my friends and family?? So I dug through my stash of things that I've picked up over the years, intending to use for stamping, hoping something would jump out at me. I found some lovely naked big clothespins, just begging me to alter them A light went on!! I am short on cash, and have a darling little boy!!! I will make a cute little photo holder for my little monkey. Here it is:
Now, this project will take you much more time than yesterday's, but yesterday's was almost too easy! Here are the deets: I covered the front and back of the clip with patterned paper (SU!). I stamped the monkey from Unity's Wild and Crazy Bunch twice, once on cocoa and once on caramel, then cut out the belly, ears and face from the caramel, to paper piece on the cocoa. Then I glued the monkey to another piece of cocoa cardstock to give him stability before I cut him out. I attached him to the clip with stampin' dimensionals. I tied a ribbon around the clip, and looped the monkey's tail over the ribbon. Finally, I stamped the word little from the "little one" sentiment and the word monkey from the "let's monkey around" sentiment. I punched it out and layered it on three squares of cocoa cardstock to give it stability, and attached the edge of it to the clip with stampin' dimensionals, tucking it under the monkey's arm. As a final touch, I added my OWN LITTLE MONKEY to the clip. What do you think?
I am not finished with my Friday project yet . . . I'm still working on it. I am SO excited about it, so make sure you come back and check it out!! Thank you so much for visiting my blog this week! It has been so much fun!
