Yummy!

So it's Polka Doodles challenge time again and I think you're really going to have fun with this one... unlike me, who had one of those days where nothing went right!  But i did eventually come up with this...

 All papers & template from Polka Doodles; Fushia Pebeo Touch paint.

The challenge this week is to create a decorative item, so having been using the NEW CD alot this past week I thought I'd try flipping the Christmas Pud Box template upside-down to make an Ice-cream sundae ornamental box.  The box is topped off with meringue-like paper swirls...


and a few strawberries...


The strawberries & the paper for the meringues all came from the Candy Doodles CD and were secured in place by lots & lots of silicone glue (horrible to work with, yet effective stuff!)  The swirls are made from circles like this...


And I added some strawberry sauce detail with fushia Pebeo Touch paint...


The box lid lifts out of the base, which I decorated with some spotty paper from the Paper Boutique/Creative Christmas CD & some organza ribbon.  The bows are made with a length of ribbon folded over three times & secured with a staple in the middle..


Hope you get a chance to play along with us this week.  And boy, did I have a difficult choice picking my favourites from our Father's Day/male themed entries!  You're all soooo talented!!!  Can't wait to see what you make this week!

I just love this Jenny. It really does look yummy and it's so clever to turn a Xmas pud into a sundae.
