Hello everyone! It's time for another "3-D Wednesday" with My Creative Time. The goal is to challenge yourself by making a 3-D project...anything but a card or layout.
I've seen a few of my DT buddies and other friends make this cute little shirt treat box, but I was in a silly mood this weekend so I decided to take it one step further:
Isn't he funny? Sometimes I just crack myself up!!! LOL ;) I knew the minute I saw this set from Emma that I was gonna have to make this funny little man.
The fun little shirt treat box is cut from the Tags, Bags, Boxes & More 2 ~ Cricut Cartridge. The little man is cut from the Everyday Paper Dolls ~ Cricut Cartridge - as you can see I only used his head and hands. I took all the other body parts and wrapped them in a trash bag and threw them in the lake. HA! LOL! Totally just kidding . . . just wanted to see if you were reading this whole thing! Hee Hee! The patterned papers for the shirt, the tie and the hat band are from the Die Cuts With A View ~ Baby Boy stack. The solid brown and the solid gray papers are from Recollections.
The perfect little tie and the hat with hat band are cut with dies in the My Creative Time ~ Here's Lookin' At You stamp set. The cute little glasses and mustache are stamps in the same set. The ink for the glasses is black ~ Ranger Archival ink. And the ink for the mustache is rich cocoa ~ Memento ink. I added my favorite googlie eyes from my stash. I also used charcoal ~ Color Box ink to shade his hair a little bit.
One thing to note, this treat box actually has little flaps in the back that you can hook together. But I cut them off so that I could stick some goodies in there. It's hard to see, but there are little packs of Necco wafer candies in there. My dad has always loved them ever since I was little, so I thought it would be fun to send him some. The bows are made with The Twinery ~ Denim twine.
And finally, my dad is a huge book and music lover so I thought I would send him a fun gift card so he can pick out his latest favorites. :) This of course is made with the all time best invention ever - the My Creative Time ~ Embossed Gift Card Holder Die. The kraft cardstock is from Recollections. And all the cute little ties are cut with the tie die in the My Creative Time ~ Here's Lookin' At You stamp set. The fun papers for the ties are from the Die Cuts With A View ~ Baby Boy stack. The "Happy Father's Day" sentiment is from the My Creative Time ~ More Gift Card Sentiments stamp set. And the ink is black ~ Ranger Archival ink.
Well, that's it for me today. I hope this gave you some fun inspiration for your Father's Day goodies. Don't forget to head on over to My Creative Time to see what the rest of the Design Team has created. Have a great day!!!
