12 Days of Crafting - Day 1: Gag Gift

12 Days of Crafting - Day 1: Gag Gift

Nancy here welcoming you to Day 1 of the 2022 12 Days of Crafting. For the next 12 days the Cat Pack team will post a  craft project which we hope will inspire you to make one of your own. There are prizes up for grabs if you choose to join in (more about that at the end of this post).

My project is a small gag gift with a bit of lowbrow "Snowman Poop" humor in the form of white Tic Tacs. These are for my granddaughters and they will love the juvenile humor.  

Using Silhouette software, I resized the snowman from the All the Trimmings digital stamp set then duplicated it and printed onto Copic friendly cardstock. I then cut into 3 x 11 inch strips and scored for a 5/8 inch bottom. After coloring the images with Copic markers, I masked the images and then blended on tumbled glass distress ink around them. A strip of patterned paper  at the top of each piece provided some extra color. 

After folding  at the score lines, I punched a tag hole at the top. 

To create the wrap for the Tic Tacs, I added double sided tape to the scored bottom and the back of the Tic Tac package and secured to the cardstock piece. I printed the sentiment onto cardstock, and cut out with a die and cut out another piece from green parakeet cardstock which can be used to add a name of the recipient.

I used ribbon to the two tags together which I also topped with a charm from a set that I purchased from Amazon. I threaded ribbon through the top holes, added the tag piece and tied together capturing the Tic Tac package inside. To add to the poop theme, I attached three small white felt pom poms to the front of the piece.
