I used three different fruit patterned papers: bananas, Granny Smith apples, and strawberries. I then finally broke out the squirrel paper that I bought years ago, but never used. A little bling, some old paper flowers, some new and adored brads, some Spellbinder die cut leaves, letter stickers and we are nearly there.
When I saw the picture that Miss Thing took with her new birthday camera, I fell in love with it immediately. Isn't it just the cutest??? I knew that I had to scrap it and finally use the acorn that I made when I first started making paper. This was done by packing paper pulp into a plastic cookie-cutter. Then I discovered how cool that the paper looks when die-cut and I quit making these thicker paper forms. However, I really like it and may revisit the use of cookie-cutters again.
