Monday's TLC Cootie Catcher

I'm sure many of you remember this little "game" back in the days...well, I do! LOL! This was the challenge on SCS for Monday's to try a new technique. It's funny because I had forgotten how to fold these little things...and even with worded instructions...I couldn't do it! SO, I went to my reliable 11 year old LV! LOL! It's funny how some of these things we did as kids are still passed on! Isn't it fun how I used the handcrafted stamp to go with the fact that it was made by hand and whatever is being created with the embellishments IS IN FACT being created by hand as well? LOL! Anywho...this was my version since I didn't have candies...lol. I made it small enough to sit on a small crafting table, but large enough to hold embellishments such as I have added here...brads, eyelets, flatback rhinestones, and flowers. I'll be doing a step by step instructions on how to make these since I'm more of a visual learner...I know there are more of you out there! LOL! Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies:
CS: Transparency, GGuava, & White non SU
Ink: GGuava, WWasabi, & BBlack
Stamps: Spiral Bouquet & SU's "Handcrafted" stamp
Embellishements: in pockets-brads, eyelets, flatback rhinestones, & flowers
Others: scalloped punch, 1 3/8 circle punch, sucker stick, & gardeners tape

Here is my beautiful paper "folder"! Thanks for the help little momma! MUAH!
