Thanksgiving Mini-me

Hi there friends,
I wanted to share this Thanksgiving project with ya. I'm so tickled with the way it came out! Plus it got the approval of my little one :) Here it is:
 I used the cake box from Bags, Tags, Boxes, & More cart on my Cricut to make the teepee. This made it very easy to create. I cut another piece of cardstock the same as the front, cut a slit into it, & folded the edges back (adhered it) so that it looks like the front of the teepee is open.

Here's a closer peek at Native American Mini-me (Tilda):
Isn't she adorable! I am so smitten with all the Tildas in this collection from around the world. She's colored with Copics. I took some blender solution & a piece of washcloth to give her clothes a more sueded look. I also made a little log for her to sit on :) Next to her I sprinkled some glittered leaves.

 At the top of the teepee, I tied a bow with the ribbon I wrapped around the box. I adhered a moon button to it & dangled some beads from the top give it a more Native American flair.

 Here's a pic of the side

& of the back:

I am ready to fill it with some yummy treats! Just slide the ribbon off & open the box- easy peasy! I may give this one to Jordan's teacher... or just keep it for myself :) We'll see.

Oh & guess what??? This little diddy qualifies for a few challenges! Yay!
