Here's a pic of the goodies in the kit which is called Fun for Boys & Girls:
Since I have two girls, it was pretty easy to come up with some awesome girly stuff with this kit. Like these letters I made for their room:
And this super cute owl frame - also for their room:
And I even had enough left over to make this card too:
So as you can see, I had no trouble with the girl stuff. But what should I do with the boy supplies? How about a layout for one of my male children - one of the ones with fur....
Here's my favorite part of the layout:
I love making my own embellishments for my papercrafts and that's what I did here with this mini-doggy treat dish made from a smooshed bottle cap (in the kit), some plastic bones that I've had in my stash forever and Glossy Accents.
First you have to smoosh the bottle cap - I use my Cuttlebug. Put them face up on the A plate:
Then place one of your metal dies on top of the caps and cover with the B plate:
Run it through your Cuttlebug and TA-DA! smooth, flat caps:
Then I placed a few of the bones in the cap and arranged them how I wanted:
And then I carefully added some Glossy Accents. Set aside and let dry. It's going to take awhile, so leave it overnight if you can. (Otherwise you will be tempted to keep sticking your finger in it to see if it's dry. Trust me on this one).
Here's your totally unique, super quick and easy, dog-gone cute handmade embellishment:
So what did you think? Will you try smooshing your own bottle caps? What will YOU put inside? Leave me a comment and let me know what you are going to make.
