Cut It Out!

Ha Ha...every time I thought about this challenge, I imagined my kids poking at eachother..."cut it out!"  Of course, annoying eachother isn't what this weeks challenge at Paper Sundaes is all about...it's about cutting something out.  I goofed a little, as it is supposed to be your image that is cut out...but this idea had been rolling around for weeks in my head. 

I bought some sparkly felt at Michael's back in November and then stared at it until this week.
I actually had a super time putting this together, and it came together very quickly.  Bananastamper was over and the kids were finally quiet and watching a movie so we snuck down to the scrap area and I puttered at this project.  How fun it was to finally use some of my old treasures.  The letters are from CTMH and came from a pack of Dimensional Elements...I honestly don't remember buying them.  The twine was sent to my by Kate over at i {heart} papers when I started on her DT for i {heart} copics.  And those little clothespins...been hanging around waiting to be used for almost 2 years...2 YEARS!!!! 

So, after this was complete, Bananastamper and I decided that this would make a great teachers gift...whether it was on twine like this one, or pasted onto a holiday piece of paper and made into a nice sign/picture.  I think we'll be getting together in January when it's chilly outside and the kids are snuggled up watching movies and make a few of these for next year.  It's never too early to get a jump on the Christmas gifts for teachers!

Stamps:  NONE!  Oh my!
Paper:  NONE!  What is going on?!
Ink:  Ha!  NONE!
Accessories:  Spellbinders Nested Mittens, Zva Jewels, CTMH Dimensional Elements, Twine, Little Paperclips from the Dollar Store, Prima Flowers Center (in the snowflake), EK Success Snowflake Punch.

This is wonderful, Danielle! I am skipping teacher's gifts this year, I think. My kids have around 7 teachers each now that they are in Jr. High, and I don't have that much time or money LOL
