A Tasty Tuesday Treat - POPCORN!

Admit it, you've done it, too - bought some craft item in the store because it looked really cool, then stashed it away and never used it. Well, about 6 months ago, I was looking in the paint section at my local craft store and picked up a 6-pack of Tulip Puffy Paint. Now, I was no stranger to puffy paint. I had used it long ago on various projects, but the bottles had long since dried up and been thrown away. So why did I buy more? Simple...the package said "puffs like popcorn." What a fabulous idea that I just HAD to try - but never did. Never, that is, until Pam gave me my Tuesday Treats assignment, and it was the popcorn box from TBBM! I KNEW I bought that puffy paint for a good reason!

My original idea was to make the box and attach "popcorn" all around the edges, then fill the box with movie candy, a package of microwave popcorn, and movie tickets. This idea rattled around in my brain for weeks, but I could never really picture it in a way that I thought I would like. Then I ran across a card online that was basically a sleeve with a slide-out card, and this idea was born! I'm thrilled with the outcome, and I have a few ideas to use with it, though I'm sure some of you will think of others. Please share them if you do so we can post them here as updates.

Here are mine:
"We go together like popcorn and movies." (borrowed this one from a stamp)
"POP on over to the theater for a night at the movies, on me." (enclose movie theater gift card)
"POP on over for a movie night and slumber party."
"Popping up a good time......"
"Popping up good wishes for you...."

So, pop yourself some real popcorn and pull up a seat to watch the videos. Happy crafting. Just try not to get butter on your projects!!

Cartridges: TBBM and either George or Plantin
UPDATED: the zip file will include a cut file for either George or Plantin, along with TBBM
Popcorn Card files for Design Studio
Popcorn Card files for Gypsy

I think someone plopped my whole house down in the middle of the Bermuda Triangle Monday.  It seemed like every electrical thing in my house had issues and did not cooperate, so my videos are not my best.  I had fun  making them anyway, so I hope you enjoy them!

Yes I admit it, half my loft is filled with craftstuff I once bought and never used :) But everynow and then, when I go through it I go oohhh and aahhhh over things I did not even remember having, and I now have a good idea with.

Anyways, I just love your popcorn creation :):) The puffy paint is just perfect on it :) And I like the ideas you handed to us, to let someone pop over :)

Cindy, As usual you nailed it! I can think of so many ways to use this! Birthday cards, Christmas... Tuck a gift card in or put a pocket and add money for, well, popcorn! I love it!

SweetSassyDiva said...

wonderful! TFS! You really made it your own! btw, do you have the mm (metric) button set on your gypsy instead of the inches? On the right hand side under the tab "basic" It is right on top and there is button to select for inches or mm (metric). do you have the inches selected?
