Hello Doodlebug friends. Today I'm sharing a project that was a lot of fun to create. It features a mixture of Petite Prints, the Dragon Tails collection, a Doodle Cut, and even a little stamping.
This party centerpiece was made using Doodlebug's Viking cutting file, some foam board, and chipboard.  Below you can see how he was put together.
  1. Using the Viking cutting file, a chipboard pattern was cut using my Silhouette. The pattern pieces were glued onto some foam board and then cut out by hand. The body and head were then covered with patterned paper and cardstock. Some handstitched detail was added to the mustache and beard. After gluing the pieces together, I covered the sides and back of the Viking with cardstock and patterned paper.
  2. A boot pattern was drawn out onto some thin chipboard, they were then glued to 1" thick foam board and cut out.
  3. After covering the boots with some patterned paper, some twine/ribbon was wrapped around the ankle section of the boot. 1/2" dowels were used for the Viking's legs.
  4. For the title, I used one of the planets from the "Far Out" stamp set to make the wood disc shape in the center of each piece. Each disc was then embellished with die-cuts, alpha stickers, and sprinkles. Thin wire was used to hold all the pieces together. The title was then hot glued onto the front of the boots.
For the faux leather detail, the band-aid die from the "Pill Better" set worked perfectly.
For the shield, I used the same stamp as before. I stamped around the outer edges and in the center with some dark brown ink.
Here's a better look at the title and stamped details. The piece will stand without a base, but I decided to add a oval wood one, just to make it more stable. Thanks so much for joining me today. Happy crafting everyone! :)
