Chit Chat Focus | 3D Get Well Soon Gift by Jennifer

Hello, Doodlebug friends. I hope you have all been enjoying the wonderful Chit Chat projects the team has been sharing. I originally had a different project in mind but after a short hospital stay, I was inspired to create a "Get Well Soon" gift using the So Punny collection. Here's what I came up with.
I'm hoping this fun TV and oversized bouquet of pinwheels will lift someone's spirits and show them how much they are loved.
I used a few puns from the Chit Chat set and also made two more to go along with the "get well" theme.
For the last pinwheel, I used the "punny" die cut, also from the set, and added coordinating stickers, doodle pops, and food shaped sprinkles.
The television is a So Punny cutting file. Two silhouettes of the TV were cut out of thin chipboard using my Silhouette machine, then mounted to foam board. I made a foam box to fit in between the two, then the sides were closed up using chipboard.
Once the tv box was made I covered it with patterned paper and cardstock. To give the box more dimension, the knobs, screen border and tv border were cut out of layers of chipboard or foam board.
Here you can see the Soda-lightful Chit Chat close up and of course, I had to give the tv a soda from the odds and ends pack, to drink.
The back of the box is very simple, just a few heart die cuts.
I really wanted to attach the antenna, but with all the pinwheels I couldn't decide on the placement. I decided not to glue it down, but make it an accessory. Once the recipient is feeling better the pinwheels can be removed and the box could be used for storage or as decor. Thanks so much for joining me today. Happy crafting everyone!
