Settle back and be amazed at all the creativity today in celebration of Dr. Seuss.

Why Fit In When You Were Born To Stand Out is really a dynamic statement that prompted me to make three double-sided stand up Dr. Seuss-like characters, which can be given as cards, arranged as a table decoration for a party, or nestled at a work station or desk.  Let’s face it - we all need uplifting from time to time.
Here's the set of three.
Kitty in a Hat
 Thing 1

Thing 2

Recipe for project

*Special Dr. Seuss paper from a local craft store – traced and cut for special piecings

*American Craft White paper for insides of each stand up character

*PPbN jpeg images from collection called Kitten in a Hat – printed out 2x in both horizontal directions per character (Kitty, Thing 1, and Thing 2)
*LoveBug Creations Rumple Ribbon for double-bow ties - ribbon at our LBC online store
*Gel pen for highlighting the features of each character
*A whole lot of fussy cutting and adhering with double-sided tape at the top of each character

Blog Candy Alert for USA residents - The Winner will receive a sample of LBC Rumple Ribbon from me. In order to be eligible you must
1. Become a fan of our LoveBug Creations blog (if not already)

Remember, no matter how you piece your paper and rumple your ribbon, have fun with it.......cyberhugs.......Mama LoveBug

Now, let's hop over to see what's shakin' with Melissa
