My Cinderella Carriage

After making my more pumpkiny carriage, I thought it would be fun to make one that was more like the one in the Walt Disney's Cinderella movie.  This was the end result.  It was  given to my granddaughter.  I used glitter paper from DCWV Shimmer stack, and a mat size from Once upon a time, also from DCWV.  The little lanterns needed to have little rectangular pieces of gold glitter paper put inside so the white didn't show so much.  I glued pieces on the back and bottom.  I added the letter "C" to the door.  It's on the Cinderella coach, but could be for my granddaughters name too. It was the Forte font.  

My inspiration

I had to do some hunting for the crown sticky jewel on the lid.  I finally found some at Michaels.  The glitter paper does cause a challege when gluing.  It takes a little more time to adhere.  (I don't have much patience.)  In the end I was very pleased with my carriage, and I hope it's something my little princess will enjoy for years.

Cut Once and Craft for a Week.

With the addition of two grandchildren, my crafting time has been drastically reduced.  I get an hour here and there to put a small project together, but not the real craft time I desire.  In a effort to get more projects done, I decided to borrow an idea from some busy mom blogs.  "Cook once, eat all week."  So this week, I am cutting once to craft all week!

                                                         (previous years projects)

  The Bunny Hop kit by SVG Cuts from a few years ago, has one of my favorite projects for Easter.  I love the Bunny box!  I made all the grandkids one several years ago, but with new family members, everyone is getting a new bunny.  I have papers picked and I'm cutting out 8 bunnies to put together this week.  It's the setup process that takes me the longest.  Although this project is easy to pick paper for, cutting and weeding still take a while to do.  It seems I can be in my craftroom, unbothered, for several hours on Friday nights!  I have two more bunnies to cut out, so I shall get back to it!
