    so it seems we all forgot about September Round Up ... at least I don't remember getting one started and am not finding it if someone else may have took the initiative to get one going .....sooo, I feel kinda bad about that!:oops:

    so I am posting a reminder for October Round Up (...it wouldn't officially be till Friday October 6th)
    ...but since we neglected September :oops: ......I plan to start October Round Up early and will be starting it this coming Friday September 29
    I do hope you will all consider making a little something to share

    aaaannnd.......... here is a little share just because I feel bad about forgetting September !
    I made these character pillow boxes to use for Halloween, but I think kids would have fun with them anytime :) ...so if anyone likes them and wants without the Happy Halloween greeting...just let me know!
    You can print, assemble and use as is......... or get a little more creative and add a bit of yarn for a little "tuft" of "hair"
    I am posting a picture of something similar I did a few years ago to give you a little bit of a visual of what they might look like with the yarn hair ...add as much or as little as you like

    the faces I made on these character pillow boxes are made mostly of pieces from the monster pieces that Mary Ann shared with us awhile back

    Hope to see you at Round Up !! :)

    completely understand.....life sometimes gets in the way with "have to do's" and doesn't leave time for the "want to do's" ;)

    Thanks for understanding Miss "P". My life should be back to somewhat normal (normal really doesn't describe my life at the best of times lol) by Round Up:)

    Paula, please don't feel bad. You are a VERY busy person and things can slip by you the same as they can slip by any of us!

    Thank you for the cute shares, adorable.

    thanks Roberta, nice of you to try to "give me a pass on my neglectfulness".
    ..I was busy ...my sister and family had their annual fish fry that weekend and I was off helping her get ready for that on that Friday (80-100people attend their annual fish fry each year) ...it is not a community event, it is just something they do as a family and invite extended family and friends to join them ......so lots of prep and work involved in putting it together

    ...but honestly being busy isnt what kept me from doing it ...Round Up simply just did not enter my mind that day...or the days leading up to it. :oops:
    but, .... I do feel bad that not only I neglected to get it going ...but none of the other mods took the initiative to do it. :oops:
    so ...yes, I do feel bad....interaction on the forum has been so sparse from anyone lately...so I do feel bad...but I also realize we need interaction and participation from all of us...not just me.:(
    thanks again for trying to make me feel better about it.

    well, nothing wrong with those ....they are cute just as they are!! I like them !!

    here is how I made mine
    I made a little tassel or pompom and then glued onto the candy wrapper/pillowbox ...
    sort of like I do the ribbon tufts for the candy bouquets...but for these, I just cut a 2-3 inch piece of cardboard (depending on how long I wanted the hair) and wrapped yarn around it a few times ...then slide it off the cardboard and tied another piece of yarn around the center...then cut the loops open and fluff it up a bit....glued it on top and let them dry ...

    after they were dry, ...I gave some of them "hair cuts" depending on how I wanted it to look...some have longer hair than others...
    sometimes I do more loops than others so some have thicker hair than others....there is no right or wrong! ...just get creative with it and have fun with it ...I used all different colors of yarn too ..purple, pink, white, black, gray, green, blue orange, red...etc........couple of them I did black with just a few strand of white

    well, it sounds like a lot more than it really is .... it is pretty quick and no fuss....when I first made them I wasn't sure how long to make the hair...so I had to experiment and then had to give haircuts to some of them cuz I did too much o_O

    my cousin is one of my best customers and she spoils her nieces/nephews rotten at all the holidays ...she always orders lots of fun stuff from me to give to them for Easter, Halloween, Christmas ...that was a project I did for her..... and then ended up doing more for other people that she showed them to and they wanted for their Halloween treats ...I originally did them as Hershey bar sleeves
    but I was on pinterest and saw something similar but made with pillow boxes...and liked that idea ....so I figured I could make some of those up and share here
