Take me out?
My sweetheart and I love Chinese takeout. LOVE. But since we're trying to lose the last of our pregnancy pounds (yes, him too! lol) we're avoiding our beloved "general tao chicken" like the plague... mmm... ahem. Back to the paper-goodness - no calories here! I made a little Chinese takeout box and stamped an all-over pattern it (PTI's "text style II"). Then I stamped a cute tree (PTI's "way to go, kiddo"), snipped it out and glued that sucker down. Next, I re-stamped the tree onto some green paper, cut out the little tree-tops and stuck them down with some 3-D foam pads. Gives it a bit of dimension. And the little "fortune cookies"? Too cute, right? Beyond easy. A 3.5" circle gets folded over (without creasing, though - think like a taco) and then folded over the other way. Slowly. Take my word for it - I tore a few "cookies" before I got it right. Here's a closer look at those fortune cookies.
ps - My man walked in and out of the house at least 3 times before he noticed the card taped to the front door from yesterday. Love him! I think he only clued in because I kept smirking at 'im. It should come as no surprise that I suck at poker.

Again, I request instructional vlogs at some point. Not because I have any of this stuff to replicate it. Just because I think it'd be adorable.ReplyDelete
I prefer to keep an air of mystery about me, lol.ReplyDelete

This whole blogging thing is a bit nerve wracking, no? Putting your stuff on display, hoping people will like it?? *smiles* thx for the compliments - so appreciated!ReplyDelete

Great project - a lot of thought and expertise went into these - not elementary at all. And much lower calorie than the reall mccoy!ReplyDelete
