Mom and Me Class!!

Hello!  I had the most fun class ever last night!!  It was a Mom and Me class. Little people are just so much fun!!  They got glue and cupcake crumbs everywhere, but I didn't care!!  They were all so cute!  Here are some pictures from the class:

I like to make little treats for my class attendees so I thought I would do the same for the kids last night!  I made each of them a little truck! 

I tucked a stamp, a stamping spot (mini ink pad) and a mini candy bar inside each one!

Here are the goodies before I assembled them.

Traffic jam!

Here are all of the trucks together!

These were really easy to make! 

To make Cab:
 I cut a piece of card stock  2" x 4 1/2" and scored it at 1/2" on the 4 1/2" side. Then I turned it and scored it at 1/2", 1 1/2", 3" and 4".  I cut the small tabs below the 1/2" up to the score line so that when I folded it in I could glue them in place to create the box/cab shape. I cut and sponged small pieces of scrap to make the front window and two side window. I drew lines across the front to resemble the grill.

Truck bed:
I cut out a 5" x 5" square and scored it a 1 1/2", turned it and repeated at 1 1/2" and so on until all four sides were scored at 1 1/2".   I cut two of the score lines on each side and folded all of the pieces in to make a box shape.

I punched out  six 3/4" circles in Basic Black and layered the small circle in Whisper White from the 3 punch pack on top!  

These little guys could hold all sorts of things!

Then the kids made these projects:

Saw this cute idea on Pinterest!  

This adorable lion was originally created by the amazing Jackie Topa!!  She is a paper genius!!

We added him to a box front and added a tail!

We made these using the Petal Cone die!

We had a great class!  Hope those little guys and gals had as much fun as I did! :)

Have a wonderful day!  I will be back soonest with more to share!
