santa's belly and winter alpaca {lawn fawn inspiration week}

Welcome back to another day of Lawn Fawn inspiration! I have 2 projects to share today.

The first is a different take on the pillow box add-ons, Santa's Belly. I made a Santa face! I used all of the same pieces to create him: the buttons became eyes, the scalloped pieces became beard and hat trim, and the belt was shortened tremendously to become his nose.

I started out with a white pillow box, and added detail to it. First, I grabbed a skin-colored copic marker and marked off a rectangle that would become his face.  I then die-cut a second pillow box in red and cut a piece to glue on top (for his hat) and another for his outfit.  The back of the pillow box is still white.

As a reminder, this is what the pillow box is meant to look like, with the Santa's Belly die-set:


And this is my guy:

I think he turned out so cute!

I also have a card to show off using the new set, Winter Alpaca.

I paired him with an older set, Fanciful Frames. and added texture to the alpaca using liquid appliqué. When you heat that stuff up, it bubble a bit and is so perfect for fuzzy alpaca texture.

My kids loved this set so much! They've been giggling "alpaca my scarf" for weeks now!
