The Greeting Farm is one of my favorite stamp companies so I just have to join in this fun hop! Although I had wanted so bad to create a project for each of the categories, but I just couldn't find time to finish all! I did get two done though! :)
This first one is for the Santa category. This project was inspired by my daughter's hair clips. My daughter has very thin, fine hair so she uses a lot of clips. It doesn't matter how many clips I used to clip up her hair, she looses them within an hour of two!
Anyway, here is an altered vanity box using the recently released Santa baby from the the Cheeky Xmas set. I sprayed the whole box with shimmer mist so this is very sparkly.
Here are some clips. I used frosted shrink plastic. I usually color shrink plastic with colored pencils but this time, I used Copic. I didn't think it would work but it did! Love it! These are super fun and easy to make!
This project is for the treat category. Recently I noticed my son likes Thomas and Friends. A couple of weeks ago, he came to me with a Toys R Us ad and told he he wanted a Thomas and Friends backpack! I thought that was cute, how he knows what he wants when he's only two. Well, besides the backpack I got him a Thomas and Friends wooden railroad set for Christmas. as well He is going to be so surprised!
Anyway, this project was inspired by that blue train! I had lots of fun making this train but boy was it time consuming! I didn't have a template for it so it was trail and error type of thing. I LOVE how this train turned out!
This train has ten passengers, excluding Mr. Snowman. Here is one side of the train.
Here is the other side of it.
Here is what it looks like once you open the lid to the engine. The part holds the candy is approx. 2.75x2.75x5.
