Moving on.....these are the treats I made for Gavin's classmates. This will probably be the last year as he moves to Junior High next year and the parties will end. I'm going to miss doing it..
The monkey is a Silhouette cut...the bowtie is supposed to be a hair bow in the 'she' monkeys hair but I wanted it to be from Gavin, so decided to use it as a bowtie instead. The pillow box is another Silhouette cut and the paper for it is from a digital kit called Sweet Valentine that I purchased off Etsy. The heart paper is from a digital kit called Everyone Loves Christmas and the script paper is from a kit called This and That.
I added distress ink around the monkey to give him a 'hairy' look and then glittered the hearts and bowtie.
Those tiny, tiny fingers were a bugger to attach and I debated on leaving them off.
I learned from another crafter that if you add an offset to all your cuts in the same color/pattern as the real cut and then set it to no cut, you avoid any white border that sometimes gets left if your print and cut is just a tad off....I was super glad to learn this cause I was using scissors to 'trim' up the cuts that didn't quite make the grade.
