Snowman Poop Box
Have you tried Qbee's Peek-A-Boo Box? What are you waiting for? They are so easy and SO cute!! That girl is PURE GENIUS!! Thanks so much Qbee!! We made these little snowman poop boxes at my workshop on Saturday with glitter windows. It was great fun! I found a bunch of poop poems here. I messed around until I could get it to fit inside the square 1 1/4 inch punch.
The poem is punched out with the 1 1/4 inch square punch, then layered on Ballet Blue punched out with the 1 3/8 inch square punch. That is layered on a piece of Real Red cut 1.5 x 1.5.
Punch out the square for the window with the 1 1/4 inch punch, then cover from the opposite side with some packing tape. Then, dip in Dazzling Diamonds! Inside are Tic Tacs, but you can also uses mini marshmallows.
To make the little frame, punch out a square on a piece of card stock with the 1 1/4 inch punch. Then, go directly over the top with the larger 1 3/8 inch square punch. Make sure you line it up straight before you punch it out.
***Tip: if you have the Scor-Pal, you can print out your boxes (two to a page) and then score before you cut them out. With the Scor-pal, you just line up the scor marks in a groove and go... two scored at once. I LOVE MY SCOR-PAL!!!!
Here is the recipe:
Stamps: Cold Play
Paper: Almost Amethyst, Ballet Blue, Real Red, Shimmery White
Ink: Whisper White Craft, Basic Black, Real Red, Pumpkin Pie
Other: Square Punches, Gingham Ribbon, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, Packing Tape, Scor-Pal.
Have a great week everyone!! Thanks for stopping by!
