Tinkerin' Challenge #3

Tinkerin' Challenge #3:

Use scrapbooking scraps to create a piece of altered art!

Note to self: Maybe it started with Disney's movie "Wall----eeeeee" (as Gabe says it)...or a favorite Mickey Mouse Club House episode when a robot visits...or Mommy's fun new Tinkerin' paper that she has been making cards for Send Love Today with...I am not sure what exactly sparked this new-found interest in robots...but the boys are hooked!

So, running with their interest, I decided to create this fun matching game for Nicholas and Gabriel. The case, is actually a photo case by IRIS that I found at Michael's for about $2.

To recreate:

1. Cut a 5 1/4"(horizontal) by 3 3/4" (vertical) piece from the striped paper. Round all of the corners. Choose a robot from the Tinkerin' My Stickease. Position on the right side of the B&T paper.

2. Cut a 2x3" piece of White Daisy cardstock. Round all of the corners.

3. Mask the "Robot Power" stamp so that just the word "Robot" stamps to the paper. Stamp in Tulip Exclusive Ink.

4. Drop down approximately 1" and mask the word "Power" to the paper. Stamp in Tulip Exclusive Ink.

5. Using a tight adhesive, adhere the Title card to the B&T paper--this should be to the left of the robot My Stickease.

6. Next, using the Liquid Glass, adhere the B&T piece to the top of the plastic photo box. Use a sponge brush, cover the entire B&T piece with Modge Podge. Allow to dry.

7. Allow to completely dry overnight.

To create the inside cover--cut the same size of B&T paper as used on the lid. Adhere with Liquid Glass to the inside lid. The seams should line up with the one on the opposite side. Embellish with craft buttons as desired. Use mini-glue dots to adhere the craft buttons. If choosing to Modge Podge the inside lid, paint on the Modge Podge (and allow to dry completely before adhering the buttons.

To create the matching cards:

1. Cut out 12 (or more if desired) "cards" from the White Daisy cardstock. These should be 2x3" each and all corners should be rounded.

2. Stamp a robot image onto each of the cards--two each of each of the three robots and two of each robot in each of the supporting colors (Clover Meadow, Sunny Yellow, Sunflower, Twilight).

3. Select a B&T paper for the backs of the matching cards. These should all be 2x3" and the corners rounded. Run the B&T paper through the Xyron. Adhere to the back of the White Daisy robot cards. Trim off any excess.

4. Next, run each of the cards through the Xyron with a laminate cartridge. Trim off excess.
