Firstly, if you've come here looking for dodgy financial advice, you've typed the wrong word into Google, darling - that word is Minion, not Million. And if you don't know what a Minion is, you've probably been living in a cave in the Outer Hebrides for the last couple of years...... Or you live in a totally child-free zone.
Friday was the first full day of my 6 year old granddaughter, Lara's, school holidays. And Mark and I were looking after her for the day. So naturally it bucketed with rain all day and our planned outing to the park had to be cancelled, as did a gardening session with Mark. But Lara loves crafting, so between us she and I decided we would see whether we could make a Minion style greetings card. I cut us an A6 yellow card blank each and then we delved in the snippets box for suitable colours to build our Minions with.
We used medium sized circular dies in each corner of the card blank to shape it - not by die cutting, but by drawing around the die and then cutting by hand. We each designed our own "dungarees" from blue card, then I die cut grey and white circles for the eyes, using black Candi for the pupils and a strip of black for the headbands. Then we added finishing touches with markers.
Here is my Minion
And here is Lara with hers
And now both of them side by side
Lara and I would like to share these with
Pixie's Snippets Playground - week 187
Fab'n'Funky - No Patterned Paper
I really wish I'd taken photos of the rest of Lara's lovely art and craft work - she designed her dream Romany caravan and made an easel card covered with butterflies and bows!
