One of the things I love about going to crops are the Make & Takes, little projects that help showcase some of the products one of the vendors at the event might be selling. The most recent crop I went to had a few make and takes, a scrapbook layout, a Christmas card, a Halloween treat box and a glittery diecut pinecone.
This card is a stamped image that I colored in with watercolor pencils and markers. In order to smooth out the pencil/marker lines we used a blender pen that gets filled with water and makes the colors look like it has been painted with water colors.
The treat box was real cute. The box itself was cut out of a piece of cardstock using a Sizzix. The hardest part of the box was the creases and getting it folded. I couldn't really get it folded perfectly but neither could anyone else, so I decided to use the ribbon to pull the rest of the sides closed. The image was stamped and cut out with a circle punch then backed with a scallop punch. Cute right!
The pinecone was a die cut from the Cricut that was already cut out for us to use. This was a real easy project with real pretty results, you could probably even do this with kids. We used a pen adhesive and just "colored" in the whole pinecone with the glue and sprinkled on the glitter. Simple!
