It’s once again time for another round of Simon Says… use this template! where I challenged the Hybrid Chicks to use an assigned template in a different way.
Today, we’re getting creative with Kelleigh Ratzlaff’s Soap Box template
and here’s what the Chicks came up with….
Check out Kim’s post on how she created her moose from these templates right here.
Lynn used the template along with Picket Fences kit bundle by Wishing Well Creations.
Lynn said The base for the garden is covered polystyrene packaging. The flowers were made using various punches and then glitter glue was added to the centre of each one. The picket fence was cut out by hand and I added distress ink to the back of the fence and around the edges of the front for emphasis.
Lisa played along this month and created this really cute pirate chest!
Lisa said I had to resize the template though to about 1/3 of it’s original size to make the perspective scale right for the pirate ship it goes along with. So, I wasn’t able to add as much detail as I wanted. Check out the pirate ship she is talking about in this post!
Kristina made this darling little bag from the template using TDC Birthday Bash Collaboration kit.
Jen (aka Girl Boy Girl Designer) join in on the fun and created this unique lunch box and thermos set!
Here’s what Jen had to say: This was a quick and easy project using Kelleigh’s Soap Box Template for the lunchbox and my Mug & Macchiato Template for the thermos. I used the soap box template as is for the lunchbox. I used a metal-looking paper and just added a black ribbon handle. For the thermos, I used the mug template sized a little smaller so it was a similar size the lunch box cut out in the metal paper, with the handle cut off. For the lid, I sized the mug a little bigger so it would fit over the silver base and cut off the top and handles to make it just a lid. I cut 2 small “c’s” to make a new handle that was the correct size. All it’s missing is a felt sandwich, chips, and a cookie!
I hope all this inspiration will get you looking at templates a little differently! Be sure to check out Kelleigh Ratzlaff’s templates in the shop!
Next month, we’re taking on something from Cathrine’s (aka Paper Garden Projects) store!
