Wednesday Inspiration # 50

Wow! It is another Wonderful Wednesday Inspiration! Today I bring you an idea for a centerpiece for your birthday bash. Of course I am continuing the Monkey business....

I covered a container that once held some flowers with cardstock I embossed with the Herringbone Cuttlebug embossing folder. I stamped some leaves onto green cardstock and cut them out for the border around the bottom edge. For the "Trees" I used green pipe cleaners and more green stamped leaves. I used a hanging monkey I colored with Prismacolor pencils for between the trees. The Happy Birthday banner is attached to a wooden skewer cut down to size. I attached a few leaves and some ribbon embellishments. To get the trees to stay in place I stuffed packing peanuts and tissue paper in between the sticks.

I had fun creating this little centerpiece. I love it especially when I can re-purpose an old container. So great to recycle.

I hope you hop on over to the Cuttlebug Challenge Blog to take a peek at the rest of the design teams creations...they are so awesome!! Next week we will be bringing our Birthday bash to a close with Thank You Cards...

Thank you for dropping by today, drop me a note and let me know what you think of my project. I love hearing from you.

Till next time, Jenn K
