CASE-ing the Catty #79 - 3D with Pyramid Pals

Hello & welcome to this week's CASE-ing the Catty's Blog Hop where the Crew are featuring 3D & kit projects!  You can find 3D projects scattered throughout the Occasions Catalogue & product kits on pages 32, 33 & 49.

Each week the Crew members take inspiration from a section or theme of the current Stampin' Up Catalogues to create their projects.  The acronym "CASE" stands for "Copy And Share Everything".

I was inspired by the critters on page 44 & have chosen to create a chicken & chick using the Pyramid Pals Thinlits Dies:-

The chicken is made at the standard size of the pyramid box.  I used the paw die to create the chicken's "comb" & the tiny pear shaped die to create the "wattle" under the chicken's beak.  The wings are made from the tree top of the tree builder punch (trimmed to make a straight top edge).  

To make the chick smaller than the chicken, I trimmed the die-cut panels down by approximately 3/8" on each edge of the triangle & on two edges of the square base.  His wings are made from the frosting of the cupcake builder die.  

Their beady chicken eyes are made from rhinestone jewels that have been coloured with a black sharpie marker:-

These sweet little pyramid shaped boxes are perfect to hold a little treat & can be turned into all sorts of animals (there are several in the catty).

If you are feeling inspired, we would love you to CASE a 3D or kit project from the Occasions catalogue & link it up in the gallery on the CTC post (click on the icon below).  At the end of each month, the Crew will choose a Winner.

Thanks for stopping by!  :)
