Just Playing Around...

I found this pencil sharpener at Long's Drugs and was just goofing around with it...



I removed the clear cover and used my exacto knife to cut some cardstock to fit the base...then glued it on:



I stamped, colored and cut Baxter for a little Valentine greeting (note that I left a little tab under his feet...that way I can fold the tab back, put on some double stick tape and make him stand on the base:


I covered the base with printed cardstock and a ribbon...added some words with stamp #1110 (Valentine's Day) and some swirls with stamp #B103 (Fancy Scroll...using StazOn white ink)...and here's the end result:



Of course, you can use this idea for any occasion...just thought it might make a cute Valentine since Valentine's Day is only 2 days away!!! Don't forget...you still have until tomorrow to enter the drawing for the Elliot stamp...leave a comment in the post below!! Have a great night!!!
