Do you love penguins as much as I do? How about a perfectly poised penguin popping by with your favorite treat in his pouch?! After seeing a few similar penguin treat boxes on 'the web', I knew I just had to recreate this super sweet and simple pillow box penguin using MFT goodies I received as their Guest Designer last month.
Step one: die cut a pillow box from black card stock using Die-namics LJD Square Pillow Box.
Step two: die cut two orange hearts using the oblong heart from Die-namics LJD Rustic Hearts and one white heart using the next-to-smallest Die-namics Heart STAX.
Step three: hand cut a small orange triangle (nose) and adhere to your white heart as shown. Color two black dots for eyes just above the 'nose'. I think the imperfect nose and eyes add to the whimsy of this project. As my BSF, Carole, would say: wabi-sabi, baby!
Step four: die cut fishtail flag from LLD Die-namics Accent It Labels and Tabs, stamp it with 'xoxo' from Just My Type and adhere it to the side flap of your pillow box before assembling the box (believe me, you want to adhere the 'xoxo' flag BEFORE assembling your pillow box...wink).
Step five: after your pillow box is assembled, adhere the two orange hearts to the underside of the pillow
box using foam adhesive (Jody's Foam Boosters are perfect for this
job...nice and sticky!). As you can see from my penguin's feet, he's either had a tough day on the job, or his poor little feet were crafted from a-uhm, shoddy piece of orange cardstock?! Wabi-sabi, right?!
That's it...sweet and simple, right?! I was able to pop two Hershey Miniatures inside Mr. Penguin and poised him on his feet, all ready to treat my favorite Valentine peeps!
Thanks for popping by today...
