Step it Up Game

Hi!! I made a couple projects over the weekend for this month's Step It Up challenge on the A Muse Addicts site. The challenge is to make any type of game or toy using A Muse products.

I'll share one for today:


We sell these cute little tins in the A Muse shop for $1. It was super simple to make, I stamped the images (added some black glaze pen to the spider), cut them out with my CM circle cutter, punched holes where desired, added some double stick foam tape to the bottom of the circle, placed it in the tin, added some ball bearings, put the lid on and added some ribbon to decorate the outside. Maybe not all in that order exactly, but you get the picture! :D Super easy project but it's definitely a challenging game, those balls fly around so fast in that tin!!! :D My son was so sweet, he said, "You make such cool things mommy!" Gotta love him, boosted my ego for sure!! :D

I hope some of you will be able to try out the Step It Up challenge this month!!

Hugs and blessings,
