Meoples Pillow Box:

If you are looking for my Papercraft Star post, please go here or just scroll down to the next post :)

Oh goodness, I could crawl right back into bed.  I am taking the day off from work and plan on spending it in my craftroom for some "me" time.

It's a new fortnightly challenge at All That Scraps.  This week is Anything But a Card.  But please do remember, your project must include an image sold at the All That Scraps Store.

I'll be honest, I struggle with this project.  I am so programed to make cards, that when an ABC challenge comes around and get really stumped.

I made what looks to be like a very simple pillow box.  In fact it took me about three hours to "whip up".  Seriously folks, I am getting annoyed with myself.  I am the slowest. crafter. on. earth.

I suppose all that counts is that I am pleased with the work I do and get on with it LOL.

I used this cutie newbie, Meoples Brrrrrrrr! Snowboy.  Around here, you bundle up and you bundle up GOOD for winter!

I paper pieced him an adorable polka dot snowsuit and flocked him some fuzzy mittens.
Project Ingredients:  C.C. Designs stamp, Craftsmart Black ink, MME papers, DCWV and Recollections cardstock,  Prismacolor pencils,  Copic markers, Gelly Roll white pen, American Crafts jute, Studio G green flocking powder, Creatology pom poms.  Tools: sewing machine, hot glue gun, Fiskars paper crimper,

I made this project for the following challenges:  Cupcake Craft - get krafty, Amuzing Challenges - flocking, Glitter n Sparkle - anything but square, Pink Gem Challenge - polka dots, Crazy 4 Challenges - ABC.

Have a wonderful Wednesday and thanks for the visit!

Deanne, this is so super cute! The flocked mittens are adorable and I have to say I might also be in the running for the slowest crafter on Earth award! LOL hope you are having a wonderful day!
