A-mazing (Neat and Tangled release week)

Hi and happy new year!

We're starting out 2018 with a fantastic Neat and Tangled release. Today's project features A-mazing - a fun set of sentiments that work to compliment the matching maze die - designed by the always innovative Miriam Prantner.

I borrowed a couple of mice from Schoolhouse, and had them send a heart through the maze to each other.

I've been wanting to use up these wooden arrows! Start here...

Slide it on over...

Isn't it so cute? Because the tract is so detailed, the heart won't spin down. You do actually have to move it through the maze yourself, but my kiddos had fun playing with it.

I can't wait to make a birthday card: a critter or kid on one end, and a present at the bottom?  With a party hat moving through the maze? What would you make with this die?

Visit the NT blog this morning (or afternoon, depending on how much party you had going on last night!) to see what the rest of the team came up with - click!

As always, before you go, leave me a comment and you could be eligible to win a 25$ gift card to the NT store at the end of the week.

  15. This is sooooo cute! I love how you made it so the heart travels from one mouse to the other! There are so many options with this idea, never mind all the ways this fabulous die can be used. I think it definitely needs to be used for some sort of slider or shaker card, or something like the old Labyrinth game.
