This afternoon I am going to a birthday party. There will be 9 young children making Top Note boxes. Yes I have already cut, pre-scored and even put Sticky Strip on the boxes to make it easier for them. The girls will be using Pony Party and the boys Lots of Bots to decorate the boxes. In fact the girls one is just like the one I did for the Stampers Anonymous Blog Hop and you can see the picture here. I am taking my Big Shot along so that the kids can 'crank the handle' and make the top notes - they seem to enjoy this!!!
Well I thought I should also turn up with a small gift for the Birthday Girl so thought I would make a small pencil holder like you can find on Patty Lee's blog here. I adjusted the size a little and reworked the measurements into cm's. Now normally when I am working on something I tend to make up a 'proto type' in any old scrap cardstock I have, but this time my proto type is actually the one I am giving (probably due to time restraints). I was brave and cut up a fresh piece of Melon Mambo before I really thought about it. I should have either used a roller on the cardstock or stamped it but before I realised it I had actually put it together.
What do you think?
I think the next one I make will be two colours and maybe some dazzling diamonds for bling. You could make it out DSP like Patty Lee but I think it may be a bit flimsy. Although DSP for decoration would be good too.
