Simply Saturday

It's been way too long since I posted a Simply Saturday...  One of my crafty pals showed us how to make this adorable's just too stinkin' cute right?!?!

It doesn't look easy but it really was! The gator head was made with the largest Labels Collection Framelit. Just cut the die with the folded edge of the paper just below the top of the die to keep the fold, then cut the sides off - how incredibly clever! Then the "head" is put thru the Big Shot with the Decorative Dots embossing folder. It's a little stiff putting the double paper thru the Big Shot but it's a great effect! The inside is just the next smaller frame. And his "teeth" are little banners! We inked up his face front and nostrils a little to show the texture a bit. And we put his nostrils on with glue dots to give just a slight "lift" for that extra dimensional look.

Once you've made one, you'll see how easy it is to make..I promise :)  This is one that looks difficult and impressive...but it's easy and impressive!

Thanks for stopping by on this Simply Saturday - where Simple can be Stunning!
