Favor Bag Accessory - Cow with Jenn


 Hi crafty friends! Today I wanted to share with you a project inspired by the felt boards you might have played with as a child! Did you know that you can use metal dies to cut things other than paper? I used the new FBA Cow Creative Cuts to create a felt cow! 


I used craft felt that you can easily find in the big box craft stores and cut out the pieces I needed to create my cow. For anything that was white, I had to double layer it because it was very thin and see through. To glue everything together, I used fabric glue. I wanted the cow to be able to hold different things so I sewed the arms onto its body with a few blanket stitches. 


I wanted to make this interactive so I cut out a felt heart with the Heart Pocket Set and drinks from the Boba Shaker Combo. For the boba drink, I used some tan cardstock to make the milk tea and boba. I also added a piece of acetate to make it look like a plastic drink cup. 


To prop up the felt board and to store the drinks and heart, I modified the heart pocket tag from the Heart Pocket set by partial die-cutting it to make it a little shorter. I also had to modify the side tabs by gluing extender tabs so that it would be thick enough to hold the drinks. I glued a small felt heart (cut from the Boba Shaker Combo) onto some cardstock and glued it over the little hole of the tag. 



I stamped my sentiment (from Boba Tea) on a pink cardstock heart and glued it onto the pocket tag. I decorated some kraft cardstock by stamping drinks from Little Edibles and boba hearts from Boba Tea with light brown ink.

I wrapped a piece of heavyweight cardstock with light blue felt and grass that I cut using a grass die. Then I used hot glue to stick it onto the card base that I already prepared to create this easel card. Finally, I glued the cow onto the felt background with fabric glue. 
Thank you for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed my project! Happy crafting!
