My granddaughter, Little for short, is going as Elmo this year. They have come out with a costume version that is a dress for little girls and this little one is in love withe Elmo. You know I had to make something unique for her to go with her costume so what's Elmo without his best friend Dorothy?
I had a clear pail I had picked up from AC Moores a few years ago and decided to make a simple Trick or Treat carry tote...fish bowl... for Little.
I lined the inside of the bucket with Bo Bunny's Double Dot, paper after cutting out the "water" effect on the top. This is one 12 x 12 sheet cut in half. I found the art of Dorothy on the internet and printed it out on white card stock.
I used the piece I cut off the top of the lining to place around the bottom outside of the bucket for a bit of 3 dimensional effect. LH had to have some "rocks" in her bowl so I added epoxy Rain Dots to the outside. I did add a bit more adhesive to it for staying power through several Trick or Treat sessions.
Quick bubbles with Fiskars circle thumb punch and Round n' Round squeeze punch.
I am beginning to get excited about doing Ali Edward's December Daily again this year. I love to do something different and this year I think I have it. Do you know what this is?
This is Vintage 1970's Psychedelic Art Platter Pak 45 Record Case. Music is a big part of my memories of Christmas and of course I'm from that 70's generation of records.
Have a Happy World Card Making Day Saturday!
