Wow. Can you even believe it’s Friday again! Something has happened to the space-time continuum, I’m pretty sure. A shift in the Force. And warp in the weft. Something! Time. Is. Flying!
A few weeks back, I did a Saturday evening video sharing a whole stable full of Mini Curvy Keepsake treat boxes – from wintery to Thanksgiving-y to Halloween-y….Click the pic to go to that post and see the video, if you like!
Today, based on my friend Amy Koender’s adorable reindeer that she made this week – and a picture of a spooky Halloween cakeball I saw on Pinterest – I created a NEW member of my Mini Curvy Keepsake Stable – with the help of an easy tag from the Tags Tags Tags Bundle. Take a look-see:
Ladies and gents….I present…The One-Eyed Purple People Eater! LOL
And he’s super easy!
I started with a piece of Gorgeous Grape cardstock that I cut with the Mini Curvy Keepsake die to make the treat box.
Then I embossed it in the Hammered 3D Embossing Folder. You’ll need to run the die cut thru twice to get the whole thing embossed…
Then I folded it all together and got ready to decorate him. Her?
The eye is a mix-mash of die cuts from various sets in my stash.
His blood-shot eye is a flower from the Perennial Birthday set – stamped in Poppy Parade on Whisper White – then cut with a button die from the Arts & Crafts Die set.
Next is a Basic Black 1/2″ Circle Punch – then a Granny Apple Green Googly Eye embellishment.
I adhered the pieces and parts together – sort of wonky-ly cuz…you know. One Eyed Purple People Eater – gotta be a little wonky! Then I added it with a Stampin’ Dimensional. Ha – didn’t think I’d get one in, didja?!
His eyelash is a short piece of Granny Apple Green “grass” from the Wiggly Bugs dies, he’s got ears from the Tasteful Background Die set, his “horns” (in Gorgeous Grape) are actually “quotes” from the Hand Lettered Prose dies. His fangs – I feel confident that in order to be a “people eater” he’d have to have some teeth! – are Whisper White leftovers from the Tasteful Background die set. All stuck on with Liquid Glue!
Now – his hindend is also decorated – with a Granny Apple Green “tail” – cut with a branch die in the Mini Curvy Keepsake set. It’s adhered with Liquid Glue and has a Gorgeous Grape gem from the Noble Peacock Rhinestones at the top.
Hey! Have YOU ever seen a One-Eyed Purple People Eater? PROVE that he doesn’t have a tail like that?! 😉
The tag is from the Tags Tags Tags stamps set. I stamped it in Granny Apple Green on Whisper White and cut it with the matching die in the bundled Trio of Tags Set. I also cut two little jack-o-lanterns (in Trio of Tags) in Gorgeous Grape and stuck them on with Liquid Glue. Then I added a Gorgeous Grape Noble Peacock Rhinestone.
I ran a length of 3/8″ Tricolor Ribbon thru the top and tied it off with some White Solid Baker’s Twine – looping the tag in as I tied the bow.
And – that was it!
Et Voila! A new – and uber-spooky addition to my little gang!
It’s fun to look thru all the tools in your toolbox and come up with fun ways to decorate these fun Mini Curvy Keepsake boxes! They can be snowmen, OEPPE’s, Reindeer, and Fall Favors!
Go ahead…. think outside the…Mini-Curvy-Keepsake Box! I hope you like!
