Thursday Challenge - National Popcorn Day Winner is ELAINE

Moderator: Golda

January 19 is National Popcorn Day. Your challenge is to make a paper project featuring popcorn in some way.
You can use a sentiment about popcorn, you can use popcorn, you can make a background with red and white stripes, you can make a background with yellow sprinkles, you can make a background using popcorn kernels and ink. My son's idea was to use bright popping ink and roll a corn on the cob through the ink and on the background (so you have corn that pops) :lol: . You could also make your own "popcorn" using a pencil eraser and white ink. There are so very many ways to feature popcorn. Have fun with this.

Jane, I actually ordered the popcorn box and stamp set, as well as the dies accidentally once, when my blood sugar was low. I do like them, so I'm not upset about it. Well, except for having spent money, when I wasn't thinking straight.

Kathy, I'm sure you will come up with a fun idea. Besides all the ideas I listed, you can find popcorn images online and print and cut, too. "I'm so happy you popped into my life." is a good, generic popcorn sentiment, though I bet you'll come up with something absolutely amazing, as usual.

I had bad JuJu this morning and had to make the blue frame three times. :cry: Finally got it right. I used two dies for the popcorn; one is a cloud and the other is a scoop of ice cream. I rubbed the edges with Mustard Seed Distress Ink. Even though I had trouble, it was still a fun card to make. Thanks for a poppin' good time, Golda!
