The challenge is here
This is a popper. Basically it's a covered can, that you stuff full of goodies (for a birthday, for shower gifts, etc, etc) and they use the pull tab to open it and get the goodies out. It's a fun little gift container for sure!

If you have any questions, please direct them to Donna, you can ask me, but really, all I'm doing is teaching them. She will have the supply lists ready for you once you sign up, and also for KK there is a price break for having more than one child come, and also for attending all 5 sessions.
Just so you know.
*Double sided pattern paper or card stock (at least 8.5X11, can be 12X12)
*coordinating papers (scraps work)
1. For this project I used a sheet of 12X12 double sided paper. You can use card stock as well- I just want patterns on everything. You need to start with a sheet of 8.5X11, so I cut the 12X12 down to the correct size.
2. After the paper is the size you need it, I inked the edges. This is not needed, but I love inking. Then you take one end of the paper and fold the corners to meet each other in the center, at 4.25" You are folding the 8.5" side.
And the unveiling of my personal playroom AFTER!
I have desk space, I have a floor, and I have a bed. I organized the paper racks in my closest, the tubs under my corner spot, and also sifted thru my scrap papers.
I'm so excited to have space on my desk again, I'd forgotten what the table top looked like!
Congratulations to: JennaZ!
Please email me at ezscrappinmel at gmail dot com and I'll get the loot postal ASAP!
Thanks everyone for playing in my 1st ever blog candy contest!
To get in on it, just leave a comment! Only one comment per person please. Yes, I will ship out of the US, and in the US also. So, no matter where you live, comment! I know a lot of people come, and 98% do not leave comments. It's a chance for me to meet you.
Drawing will be done Monday, June 16th, morning.
For those who live in my town, feel free to stop by my house- my catalog is already marked up for easy viewing of the retired list.
I hate things to retire... but I do look forward to the new stuff!!
The challenge was/is:
4 pattern papers
3 word title
2 die cuts
1 something special (your choice)
That is just SICK & WRONG.
We're renting movies, and making messes... I swear, Mother Nature is playing a sick joke- it's supposed to almost be summer! We didn't even get spring yet!
*I just turned on the heater in 2 rooms, and the fire place is now going again as well. This makes me cry, big, fat tears.
*Wood letters (any will work- I cut my own, the ones I'm using for this are 8")
*Paint, alcohol ink, walnut ink, etc
*Scissors and/or X-acto knife
*Adhesive (I used tacky glue & glue dots)
*Paper & pretties
1. Either pick up your letters at a craft store, or cut them out. I notched the back for easier hanging.
2. Once ready, paint the sides and back side. The front doesn't matter since it will be covered up. For simplicity I use spray paint, in black for this project. Repeat if needed.
3. Leave letters alone over night, or until dry. I prefer to leave over night so I know for sure everything is dry to perfection.
4. Pick out pattern papers of choice. I've used as many of 3 papers per letter, but for this project I used only 2 papers for each letter- 4 papers total.
5. Trace out your letter shapes on the paper. Make sure you are tracing them correctly, and not backwards! For ease, trace the letter facing the correct direction with the paper underneath. Then you don't need to worry about flipping anything around.
6. Cut along pencil lines for all letters. Erase marking as needed.
7. Use adhesive, I use tacky glue for this part, to cover the letter. Make sure to get the edges really done. Press paper down firmly and hold in place for a few second. I like to put something heavy on top of the letters while I do the rest of the word- just extra insurance for no air bubbles in my paper.
8. Don't worry about ugly edges- we're getting to that!
9. Put a thin line of adhesive on the edge where the papers meet, and cover with ribbon. Once dry, about 10 minutes, trim ribbons to the edge. Sometimes I wrap the ribbons all the way around, but I didn't for this project.
10. Ink, if you like to ink, the edges of your letter. If you are not a fan of inking- use paint. This is the best way to clean up any choppy cuts or ragged edges. It also helps tie everything together.
11. This is where you get to have fun! Go out and embellish to your hearts content.
