A “love song-inspired 3D project!” Wow, that’s a mouthful! Christel suggested the theme for this weekend’s blog hop. If you arrived here from Charlotte’s blog, A Little Bit of Detail, then you’re right on track! The hop starts at Cooking With Cricut. You won’t want to miss any of the projects, so click here to start at the beginning.
A love song-inspired 3D project . . . Oh, the possibilities!! So many to choose from!! With Valentines’ Day coming up I thought I’d make something to give to my students. I thought of lollipops and remembered the song, My Girl Lollipop. Do you remember it? The lyrics are here. And the lollipops are here:
The flowers are from the Bear With Flower Pot and Scalloped Mat set from Paper Crafting World. (This is the same set I used on this Welcome Baby mini-album. For that one I used the bear.) The flowers are cut at 2.5 inches, and I used Peachy Keen stamps for the faces.
I made a second Love Song-Inspired 3D project for the hop. The song is Sugar, Sugar by the Archies. “You are my candy girl, and you got me wanting you!” I thought of this song when I saw the Kisses 2 U file from Paper Crafting World. She’s so pretty!! I filled a Frappuccino bottle with Hershey kisses.
I couldn’t stop there! I almost always have a song in my head, and when I was browsing through the files at Paper Crafting World, I saw this adorable Mouse Couple Dancing. The song that comes to my mind when I saw them is Do You Love Me? They were just crying out to be put in motion! I thought about those antenna-type hairbands that you usually see with hearts or other shapes on the end, and thought I’d make my own.
I wrapped floral wire around a marker to make the springs.
I have a set of acrylic stamps to give away inspired by Donny Osmond’s hit, Puppy Love. It’s Mr. Cricut Crazy’s Man’s Best Friend Vol. 1.
