WCMD QuicKutz Club

I've really liked the various Frankenstein cards I've seen on the Web. Today the lovely and talented Pat L led us (us being the Saturday crew in our local QuicKutz Club - we've grown too large to all meet on one day so we now meet the first Friday/Saturday monthly) in the making of this cute basket.

It's just one piece of 12x12 cardstock, 1) scored at 3" and 9" in one direction, 2) scored at 4-1/2" and 7-1/2" in the other direction. You then line up the outer corners' scored points and crease the resulting fold outside of the "box," fold those toward the 3" section of the box, pierce thru all 3 thicknesses and insert a brad to hold the sides together. The hair is a QuicKutz die originally intended to be grass. Voila! Easy peasy!

I came home and made the matching card. The inside reads "Friend. Good. - Frankenstein," a quote from one of SU's stamp sets.

card deets follow - stamps: n/a; paper: Paper Reflections' black cardstock, Prism's Parakeet bright green cardstock; ink: PC-generated greeting and Sakura pigma calipen for mouths; accessories: Darice's 10mm googly eyes (sigh ... the larger of the two I'd picked up and I still should've purchased larger, eh?! ... back to the store I go again!)
