welcome to the all creatures blog hop hosted by misty. I am really happy to be invited on the hop. this hop is for our heros they are needing some ideas to send cards and such to their children. All these projects through the hop will be kid friendly sure to cheer up a little one. This skunk mini is the blog candy for this hop. wanted to match the critter theme. so just leave a comment and follower if you are not already. Also today I am hosting my own blog hop basket case blog hop so make sure you scroll down to visit both hops. You wont want to miss all the talent and ideas. I will pick winner sat 16th for this mini so make sure to leave someway to get ahold of you. this critter hop is just for one day april 15th my hop easter basket case hop is 15th and 16th so lets get onto the project I have made. this is the back of the mini says you have reached the stinking end. ha
my project is this lion note holder
start with 8 and a half by 11 in cardstock
fold in half and open up
now 2 and a half from bottom fold up. set aside for now
lets make the note cards start with 4 in square then a wht 3 in square and a strip for top cut 4in by 1in
glue together should look like picture above
now back to the cover glue a piece of ribbon in center only
close then punch a hole at the end
now thread the ribbon through holes
now onto the lions on top of notecards you will need a 2 in scallop cut for lion mane, 1 and a half circle cut for head and 3/4 in for lions nose after lion is made glue to top of note card
here is what it should look like it will only fit 2 on each side with envelopes this will fold perfectly
now for the front cover. I love making animals out of shapes from george cart. to make this lion you need to cute circle for head at 3in and for raised nose area cut 2in circles and for nose cut oval at 3in for the mane just take scraps and cut in different sizes glue these on first then the lion head. I hope you found this helpful and enjoy making these cute little note holders you can make them in so many themes. fun fun fun.
