Cat Lover's Blog Hop Day 3

Well, looky here, I'm still in it.  It's Day 3 of the Cat Lover's Blog Hop at Her Peaceful Garden and I'm here to show something unexpected.  While commenting on the fab Bingo ATC's on KT's Fit Kitty's Blog I was intrigued by the vintage images she used that took me back to my childhood.  One had a link to ChouxChoux Paper Art.  I poked around there a bit and found THIS POST that had the cutest little Origami Cat Treat Box with a Youtube link to instructions and a fab little freebie printable for a tag and/or card.  Since I had no idea what I was doing for today's Hop post, why not do some origami?

At 4:30 in the morning, this isn't the easiest thing to make, especially when using heavy black card stock instead of origami paper, but Lori at ChouxChoux Paper Art had some tips that helped. I decided to deck out my kitty with a felt witch's hat, some eyelash yarn whiskers, a crinkle ribbon bow from DL.Art, and a little orange bead nose.  I've tied up some candy corn in tulle and tied it with Halloween twine and added the FREE PRINTABLE tag from ChouxChoux Paper Art.

Here's a closeup of the tag from ChouxChoux Paper Art (thanks to Lori and KT for sending me there).  I've used Spellbinders die to cut and mount the cute kitty. Sentiment is part of the printable.  WooHoo!

Thank you Janis and your fabulous sponsors for all the fun and inspiration at the Cat Lover's Blog Hop.  There are daily prizes and lots of ways to win cool cat schtuff.  You don't even have to make a project.  Check it OUT!

I'm also adding this to Simon Says Wednesday ATG, the Outlawz Monday Greetings Animal Antics challenge and DL.Art October linky Challenge.

  20. Oh, I can so relate to crafting (or more likely blogging) at 4:30 am. And usually it is the 4:30 am at the END of my day, not the beginning! Ugh.

    This project is brilliant. Big kitty kudos for managing it with cardstock. Wow. It's so cute. Great little treat decor box!!! Love how you did the whiskers. Clever!!

    Thank you so much for participating in the 2016 Cat Lovers Hop!!!
