Playful Pals and Pyramid Pals Cookie Monster Box

I am having a lot of fun with these "Playful Pals" .There's so many fun pieces to the stamp set and to the "Pyramid Pals" Thinlit dies.  

Today I thought I would incorporate some other punches with the set.  

I thought a Cookie Monster critter would be fun.  Oh and it was super easy to do too.  I used a scalloped circle and some round punches.  It doesn't get any easier than that.  

A tip from one of my previous posts:
Now when you make these fun pyramids, be mindful as to whether or not you want the pyramids to open or to be glued shut.  Since you have to cut out two pieces to form the pyramid, I glue them one at a time.  After I glue the first one, I will glue the bottom only to the second piece and insert it inside the first half I glued.  Now you can see which side you need to glue to have a pyramid that opens or one that is glued shut.  Ones that open are nice because you can put candies or other things inside them. They make great kids party favors.  They also make great co-workers gifts too!!  There's LOTS of ideas you can come up with for uses for these adorable boxes.

A tip if you are using the glitter papers.  You will need to use a large paper clip to hold the seam in place while it dries.  With card stock you just add glue, run your bone folder over the seam and it's good to go. But this glitter paper needs a little more help and time.

So if your little kiddies love Cookie Monster, you can make a whole herd of them!!!  This one is open in the back so I can add some little cookies inside as a treat for my little grand-monster!!! LOL  I think she would get a big kick out of him.  Plus I know she'd love the cookies.

I had used Pacific Point here for him.  I also stamped the curls on using Pacific Point ink.  What took the longest to make this was getting all the punches out!!!  

These are SO much fun and I have a few more to show you soon!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
