Almost Artisan – 3D project 1

I’m back with another project that I submitted for the Stampin’ Up! Artisan Award Contest.  This is one of the two 3D projects that I created.

I actually made this box originally as a project for Create with Connie & Julie and it was a birthday theme – click here to see that one.  I recreated it for the contest and made a new baby theme.  One of my friends, Jenn, said she thought the box would be perfect for a baby gift and I agree.  I needed something to go inside so I bought cloth diapers and cut Build-a-Bears with pajamas on them and put those on the diapers and added the ribbon trim.  I thought they would be cute burp cloths.

The box has 6 burp cloths inside – 3 in So Saffron and 3 in Old Olive.  I rolled them up and tied them with the Striped Ribbon.

The box is made from the Fancy Favor box – actually two of them.  On each side of the box I have two Build-a-Bears and they are all “holding hands” all the way around the box.  I made a boy and a girl on each side.  I added the animals in between.  The paper is the Tall Tales Designer Series paper.

I was really happy with the little hanging tag once I figured out what I wanted to do.  The giraffe is cute with the Rock-N-Roll technique – inked in So Saffron and rolled in Chocolate Chip. The tag is two sided since you could see both sides of the project and I didn’t want an “ugly” side.  So the back of each animal is colored to match the front.  You can just barely see the back of the other giraffe – it is So Saffron.

I hope you like it.  It was fun to make.  Although I don’t see myself making any more little bear burp cloths.  The material of those cloth diapers was just hard to work with because the edges were pretty thin.  Oh well.  All in all a cute project.

Thanks for stopping by today!
