Unbelievably I have reached 15,000 hits, so in a couple of days I'll be posting a little RAK -- look out for it!!!
Now I have a little item I made that I think you'll all get a bit of a kick out -- but first, how it came about. I was in my hubby's "man cave" -- the basement -- waiting for some laundry to dry. While sitting there, I looked around laughing at all the toys he has accumulated; a big screen tv's, bar tv, exercise room tv, stereo equipment, electronic exercise equipment, wii, and then my eyes stopped searching further and my brain started ticking. This is what I was looking at:
It was the hubby's slot machine -- a BOX!!! So I ran upstairs, grabbed my camera, ran back downstairs, moved the chair from in front of the machine and snapped a picture. With my mind still telling me "a box", I ran back upstairs, sat down at my cricut and here's what I came up with:
It's a slot machine box!!! I cut out the box using George, and I search Google for a picture of a slot machine that I cut into layers and decoupaged on the front of the box to give it some dimension. Here is the box open:
I used Stickles for the simulated lights and 3D Crystal Lacquer for the windows on the slot machine.
Is this pretty cool or what?!!! I am pretty excited about it. I know a few people who love to play slot machines and I'm thinking this would make a great birthday gift to them! Of course I won't put "Cute and Some" on their box, but I'm thinking it'll be pretty clever to use their name.
.Unfortunately, I forgot all about my clothes in dryer until this morning, and they had cooled off and wrinkled by the time I did think about them -- hate wrinkles!!! So, I popped them back in the washer on the last rinse cycle and re-dried them -- gone were the wrinkles!!! LOL!!!
I hope you like the box. I've included a cut.file and the picture of the slot machine I Googled for you to use to make your own.
I'll be seeing you!
