The OCC challenge from Vicki is Easter Wishes, make a 3-D Easter project. Now I don’t celebrate Easter so I just made a 3-D spring project. Last spring, I intended to make this project, taking advantage of all the cute pastel candy available in the spring; I didn’t get it done then so this year I made sure to. For a year I saved these yogurt containers; they come in packs of 12 with 2 sets of 6 stuck together. I snapped off two, leaving these 4 you see here.
They are covered in DP from PTI, I even covered the top. I traced the outer edge and even though the holes weren’t round but I cut holes slightly smaller using a circle die anyway. It won’t hold up to heavy use but really, how much use is this going to get?? LOL. The ‘grass’ is made from a kraft envelope I crimped then sliced into skinny strips and bunched into curls.
The little chick is a Doodle Pantry image. The butterfly clothespin I found at the $ store, 8 for a buck! Great real right? The vintage lace is from Etsy and I made the cute little crocheted flowers, not bad for a first try (new pattern, I’ve crocheted before). I’m really into Glue Arts adhesives lately, I used Ribbon adhesive to glue the lace and Extreme Tac to adhere the handle and the DP. It comes as a taper runner refill for the Glue Glider Pro and as squares on a roll. I used the tape runner for the DP and I cut the squares smaller for the handle.
I hope you will play with the OCC this week! There are so many awesome templates out there, it shouldn’t be too hard to come up with something cool to create or alter something you’d otherwise toss. Seems covering boxes to use as gift bags has gotten pretty popular. What about repurposing a jar!? You have until Friday April 22nd to play.
Doodle Pantry is going to have another release this month in just a few days, April 20. There will be a new challenge too! Visit the DP blog to learn more. You still have time to take advantage of the digi grab bag deal so check out it out at the DP Specials page.
