It is my great pleasure to participate in the reprised Disney Pixar Blog Hop.
We all had such fun and a very positive reaction to the first hop ... more comments than I've ever seen! ... that a reprise is most welcome.
Like the first version, this hop is co-hosted by my "pixie Sistah" Shawn at www.craftychicsblog.blogspot.com and Melissa at www.disneydreamerdesigns.blogspot.com. If you'd like to start at the beginning, go to Shawn's site by clicking HERE. You should have come from Madison's Funky Cards fun(ky) site. Hop along the Happy Trail... And DO make sure you stop back tomorrow, as there is different line-up altogether for Day #2.
I'm very excited to show you my project. I had the idea to do this after my last hop, and I just love how this turned out:
POOH'S 100-ACRE WOOD TREEHOUSE
|To make this "treehouse," I used an SVG Cuts birdhouse box as the base, cut in brown with a green roof. This cutting file shows the birdhouse with birds and flowers decorating it ... I like to use it as a base, and come up with my own designs for the embellishment. The birdhouse opens (which I'll show later), so I could stuff this with gift items, tickets to the movies or DisneyWorld, candy, etc. |
I used Cricut's Pooh and Friends cartridge to cut Pooh, the Hundred Acre Wood sign, the sun and the tree branch. Everything was cut at 4". For the tree with the striped pattern, the kite and a window on the left side (hidden), I cut pieces from one of my favorite Nikki Sivils Scrapbooker LLC papers called "We Are Family". Below are a few of the fun details of this project.
Here is how the box opens up -- the roof comes off, with its embellishments firmly attached.
Here are a few of the little details that make this special, I think.

Now how about a little BLOG CANDY: I've bought a sweet EK Success Disney 12x12" scrapbooking kit for the winner of my blog candy. It contains 121 pieces including 6 sheets of patterned Disney papers, a sheet of glitter alphabets, 2 sheets of dimensional stickers, and pages of decorative borders and elements. ADORABLE!!
