Peachy Keen Challenge 31:: 3D Objects:: Box It Up!

Good afternoon! I am posting late! We are getting ourselves ready my son's first day of school as a 1st grader! He is so lucky, he gets to be the first 1st Grade Class at the "new" school! Bitter sweet for me because my Dad taught at his older school which I was fortunate to attend! Even thought it was a Junior High when I went there! But this morning they had an open house! WOW! It is simply BEAUTIFUL! He seemed excited and the teachers, Principal's and staff were so HAPPY to see him and the other students! We are so lucky to have such wonderful people guiding our children in our community! Truly BLESSED! They love our children as if they were their own!

Anyway this week Peachy Keen is having a challenge! We are to make some sort of 3D item! Well I decided to make a box for this upcoming flu and cold season! With school starting and the weather changing I am sure this will come in handy! I figure I could put some different teas, hot chocolate and other little items in it! I decided to take the stamp Winter Baby in Teacup ( I think this one is in the PKS volt) and tweak it. So I had some fabric ~ so I decided to stamp the image on it. I paper pieced the cup and part of the hat! I will say fabric is NOT the easiest thing to paper piece but it can be done! I LOVE this ADORABLE stamp! I did pull out some Copics for the face and hands. But I didn't want to use the snowflakes. SO A sweet friend sent me some Stampin Up Dahlias! Oh I am in LOVE with them! Click here to place an order. So I cut of the the snowflake at the bottom of the cup and covered up the little snowflake on the hat. I decided to attach the image onto My Creative Time Tag Dies ~ I just LOVE that signature stitching. I like doing this for 2 reasons ~ one being they can use this box again for something else and the tag can be used for a book marker. Some people actually still like reading actual books! LOL.
