What do you do when your kids are fascinated by your Sizzix 3D Twist Cube?
You let them decorate it!
Welcome back to the Triple Play Blog Hop! This week I allowed my kids to lead the way when it came to decorating the project. They love to draw pictures and make cards for their family and friends, and were begging to be the next one to try twisting the cube.
I tend to be a little overprotective of my craft supplies, but I’ve been in a good mood this week. The kids were allowed to shuffle through my patterned paper to decide what would go on top, and each one colored a picture on coordinating DCWV cardstock to celebrate their Grandma’s birthday later this month.
We eventually chose paper with coordinating embellishments from My Mind’s Eye, which we layered with Prima flowers and a Wordsworth sentiment from the deep dark recesses of my stash. Once the kids’ pictures were attached, we were finished!
As much as I love to create detailed, time-intensive crafts, this cube project reminded me that not every project has to be my masterpiece. Sometimes it’s better to let the masterpieces come from little hands and big hearts.
This project uses Karen Burniston’s Sizzix Bigz XL Die – Cube, Twist 3-D (Pop-Up) – #656739. For a complete listing of the designers and their blog links, see the Sizzix Blog Hop master list, or to keep traveling along the hop use the links in the sidebar (top right).
Happy crafting, and happy almost-birthday Mom!
Until next time…
