Cool "Crystal" Frankie

And yet another use for those Crystal Light containers. For this project I used the tall container, only because that was what I had on hand.

To measure for fitting around you just take your card stock and line it up on the container and roll the paper around. I kept my paper at 8-1/2" and that way I only had to measure for one side. It makes things a bit easier when you can do that.

I did tape the pieces on using the Stampin' Up! Sticky Strip tape. Well, I didn't for the eyes and they did start to come apart so I had to redo them and use the Sticky Strip. That stuff REALLY holds well!!!

I did paint the lid black with acrylic paints. I used a pop dot and stuck the lid right to the top of my paint bottle so I could paint it all at one time without having to hold on to it. And it did require two coats.

I took my Coluzzle and cut out a black circle to fit on the lid. I wanted the top of the lid to look darker and smoother and card stock was the only thing that would work. It doesn't fit the area exactly but it's close, VERY close.

Thank you for spending your time with me!
