So, I’m in this swap on Craftster and the idea is to decorate a pringles can and then fill it with a bunch of handmade and some store bought things for your partner in a springtime theme. Here’s what I made for my partner Jenn (SlyFox).

The can..

I made a cute little felt mushroom house pin cushion (or just decorative cushion). It’s hand stitched and embroidered with button flowers.

A little jar of whimsy’s. Decorated with polymer clay tree stump with mushrooms, waterfall/river, ladybug, and rainbow caterpiller.

Here’s everything that was inside the jar of whimsy’s.

A polymer clay tree with gnome and heart pin.

A blue bird pushpin from my partner’s wist.

A button bracelet in rainbow colors.

My very first inchies! I painted the background with acrylic paint, cut them out (I so need a 1″ by 1″ square paper punch), did a black sharpie border, did a rough draft with black sharpie then painted over it. There’s a raven, my partner’s name Jenn, mushrooms, a tree, a robot, an owl, and an octopus.

Here’s everything I sent together. My extras were: strawberry shaped tealights, rainbow wind twister, skull fabric, cupcake fabric, blue and pink fabric, 2′ of pink cherry print ribbon, 2′ of pink ladybug ribbon, JENN iron on letters, bag of wood pony beads, 24 little spools of thread in all different colors, 2 cute kawaii pencils, some glittery pencil top erasers, and halloween stickers.

This was such a fun swap! I sent out my package today and I hope my partner likes everything. 🙂

    We soooo enjoyed the cute handmade crafts you have crafted. It is obvious you put alot of time and effort into making them. Can’t wait to see what else you come up with.
