Tutorial Wednesday at Bugaboo

Morning!  Over at the Bugaboo Challenge Blog on Wednesday's each DT member takes turns creating a tutorial and since I'm the GDT member for November today is my turn.

This is a very quick and easy project that you could put on your desk or even give as a present.  I think the total time it took was maybe an hour.

The supplies you will need are:
~a tin with a window or even one of those plain boxes that you could cut out a window
~picture of your favorite person
~a Bugaboo image
~your favorite paper and embellishments

~First: Your're going to put the piece of paper inside the tin to cover the bottom.  I flipped the tin over and measured the size from the bottom.  I didn't try to cover the entire bottom of the tin because I didn't want to get frustrated trying to make it perfect.

~Second: You can put your paper and picture inside the tin and any embellishments that you would like to add.  Since I am working with a small tin I didn't put any embellishments inside but I have a bigger tin at work that I did add embellishments to (I'll try and remember to bring it home from work today and post a pic).

~Third: I measured the smooth outside of the tin so I could wrap a piece of my favorite paper around it.  I also added some ribbon.

~Fouth: I colored one of my favorite images from Bugaboo (I love penguins), cut it out, and pop dotted it to the front. 

~Fifth: I added a couple more embellishments and voila I'm done~

Supplies: Stamp: Bugaboo; Paper: MME; Copics: G85, RV23, RV29, R20, R39, YR18, BG01, BG15, C1, C7; Other: Spare Part Buttons and Ribbon.

I also entered this into several challenges:
~Bee Craft #42 - Christmas
~Lexi's Creations #26 - anything goes
~Stamps R Us #8- buttons & bows
~Paper Sundaes #43- let it snow
~Ann's Creative Nook #111- recycle recycle
~The Crazy Challenge #40- things w/ wings

I really hope you liked my tutorial and if you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask.

Thanks for joining me today!
