Yesterday I attended a Baby Shower for Crystal, who’s having twins! The shower had a Zoo Baby Theme, so I decided to try my hand at making a “Spinner Card”.The idea is to tilt the card from side to side, and the monkeys roll around.
The monkeys each have 2 pennies behind them, separated by a dimensional. They’re stuck into a small cutout made with the Word Window Punch.
I’ve had a request for Zoo Baby Shower Ideas. What a cute theme for a Baby Shower!! We’ll be making these at my class on Tuesday, Feb. 25 from 2-4pm. We’ll also make a Birthday card & Sympathy card & something else, too.
Cost is $12 or FREE with your $20 order placed that day. RSVP.
I’m going to start posting directions on most of my cards. This is mainly for me, so that I can easily duplicate a card/sketch without a lot of measuring. Hopefully you’ll make good use of my directions, too.
Stamp Set: Zoo Babies & Cuddles & Kisses
WW 5 1/4 X 4 & textured with stripes.
Crisp Cantaloupe 3 1/2 X 3 1/2 & WW 3 1/4 X 3.
Isn’t this so cute?!! This little party favor box would be cute filled with some animal cookies (I have a weakness for the pink ones with sprinkles!).
Here’s the directions:
Stamp Sets/framelits: Zoo Babies & Chalk Talk
Used 1 3/8 circle punch for the animal & #3 circle framelit for the blue circle behind that. (I number my framelits). Wheels are 3/4 & 1/2″ circle punches.
To make the box: Start w/CS 2 X 6 1/2″. Score at 1, 2 3/4, 3 3/4, and 5 1/2. Turn 45 degrees & score at 3/4″. Snip along score lines up to the long score line & cut off the small rectangle at the end (the 1″ scored end). Use sticky strip to adhere. Clear as mud?! Let me know if you have any questions.
I think if I was having the shower, I’d line up the train & have different animals in each car!! Alligator, giraffe, lion, toucan, rhino, giraffe, & monkey!!
Remember my last post?
I had a contest to identify that little gray stamp that looks like fireworks. The winners are… Marylou Green & Louella Awai!! They identified the Stamp Set as Summer Silhouettes. Congratulations!! Cards are in the mail!
