Our cousins, Trey and Dylan, watching Kati play basketball. I used the search feature on on the Cricut messageboards for popcorn and someone with a talent for looking at things rather differently decided that the scoop of ice cream on Doodlecharms (turned upside down) looked like popcorn. Correct! I cut lots of popcorn kernals at 1", 1 1/2", 1 1/4", 2" and 2 1/2" using a Marcella by K Fresh paint pad....this worked great because each paper is 2 shades of yellow - one on each side. Then I stacked them together in groups of 2, 3, or 4, alternating the yellow shades, and inked with brown ink and a q-tip. Did I mention this was somewhat time consuming??? The popcorn bag is the tag foundation from Doodlecharms, cut double, set with pop strips between the layers, inked, and embellished with a red paint pen and popcorn. For the popcorn in the bag, I alternately glued one on the back piece, then one on the front to give it some dimension. Letters are Pink Paislee "Holly Doodle" Plaid paper is from DCWV Animal Crackers, striped paper is Bo Bunny.
