Tonight is the April Papertrey Blog Hop
This months challenge is to create a project using one of the My Timeless Templates. Last December in this post I used the Stocking template to make an ice skate. I had a hard time choosing which one to use for this challenge because there are so many of them now so I decided to use the Stocking Stuffer template again but I put a completely different spin on it this time. This is what I came up with. A gardening boot!
I started by stamping and embossing the polka dots from the Polka Dots Basic set on New Leaf cardstock with white embossing powder. After that I drew some trim for the soles,toes and boot straps then cut them out. Next I used my circle Nestabilities to create the handles then I ran all the pieces through my Cuttlebug using the Swiss Dots embossing folder. To finish the boot off I stamped the Celebrate Today sentiment from the orginal Mixed Messages set with Raspberry Fizz Ink on a Cuttlebug Tiny Tag and attached it with some twine colored floss.
I orginally wanted to put a little pot filled with flowers in the box but when I went looking for one yesterday I could not find any so I improvised and put some tulips into a paper cup and added them to the box instead. I think these boots would also make great mothers day gifts so I will be putting them up for sale in my Etsy shop if anyone is interested in buying them.
I look forward to seeing what the others come up with now and am hoping that by seeing what they have done with them it will make it easier for me to decide which one to try next. I also hope that by seeing what I have done with the Stocking Template it will help inspire you to make something like it too. As always thanks for stopping by and have a great night.
