Hello again dear friends. I’m back to share with you my DT project for this week’s cupcake craft challenge. This week I have the honour of choosing the theme and I decided to go for something completely out of my comfort zone and so my theme is “alter it”. I want you to take something plain and boring and turn it into something beautiful lol!
I found a plain 6x6 piece of chipboard that came in the back of a paper pad and decided to make something out of that. Here is the finished project – a stylish shopping list that you can put on your fridge:
I used a very apt image from whiff of joy stamps called ‘shopping Willow’ and I coloured her with promarkers. I cut her out and added 3d foam to raise her from the paper. The papers are echo park from the ‘springtime’ paper pad and the flowers from wild orchid crafts. I also altered the plain notepad and pencil by covering them with patterned paper and the pink seam binding was actually white but I altered it with an ink pad. So that it will go onto the fridge I added some sticky metallic to the back of the chipboard piece (the same stuff that you can use to store your nesties safely in place).
Our sponsor this week is pink gem designs and they are offering one lucky winner 4 digi images from their online store.
Don’t forget we also have our ‘icing on the cupcake’ sponsors, and for August we have 3 as it is our birthday month. Firstly we have Crafts U Love who are offering a £15.00 voucher to spend in their online store, secondly we have Mo’s Digital Pencil who are offering a $10.00 gift code to use in their online store and thirdly we have Sew Sweet who are offering a £10.00 gift voucher to spend in their online store. So definitely lots of yummy reasons to play along this month.
