A Tweet For You

Hey yall! How are ya doin' today? I hope you are enjoying this long weekend! My family came up to stay with us for a few days. We had a wonderful time! I hated to see them go though!!! But maybe I can go down to Bama in a few weeks.

Anyways, we have a new challenge for ya over at The Cuttlebug Spot. We want you to create any project that includes a bird and the use of your Cuttlebug. Easy Peasy and fun!!! Here is the link to the blog for ya:

This week I created a little altered project. I recycled a jar that some scrappy stuff came in. I filled it with Brandon's fave...Mike-n-Ike's. I used some red cardstock, embossed with the Distressed Stripes folder, around the jar. I also added some ribbon. I pulled out my Cuttlebug again and cut out the sentiment with the 'stamp' die that comes with the Cuttlebug. Then for the top, I folded this little bird gift box, which was cut with my Cricut using the Sure Cuts A Lot (SCAL) software. I found the template for this on the SCAL forum. Here is the link to the file if you are interested:

I changed mine up just a tad. I decided to add some real feathers instead of cutting mine from the box. This was kinda tricky to put together, but very fun!!! I tied a bow to add to the head of the bird...had to girl it up! LOL. Here it is:



I already have given it to Brandon. He loved it! He said it made his day, so that made my day!!!
So do hop on over to The Cuttlebug Spot and show us your 'tweet' projects!!! As always, thanks for droppin' in today! Happy Scrappin'!!!!!
