Stampin Campin Curvy Keepsake

Get ready for Curvy Keepsake Boxes!  I've seen so many of these adorable ideas all over the place, so I wanted to start my collection with my very own creation, but I didn't know where to start.  Now that I've started, I'm excited to make more fun things!

Earlier today I was looking at email and I had one from Pinterest for things I might like and one of them is campers.  I love the little trailers posted there and follow a group called Sisters on the Fly who make over old trailers for traveling.  As I was looking through the shape of some of them hit me right between the eyes and BOOM, I had my idea! 

 
Is this the cutest thing in the world or what?  If I were truly crazy, I'd open it up and put little furniture inside!  The thought did cross my mind!  Here was my inspiration.:


Here is the front of the trailer with a nice big window for looking out at the woods.  If I attempt to make this again, I'll score the front and back panels as well.
 
 
 The windows are Smoky Slate with a screen / or a curtain look for inside made from Vellum.

 
 


I made the "license plate" using Simply Serif Mini Alphabet (126360)

 
 
Here's the bottom so it will stand up.  I punched two "wheels" with the 3/4" punch (119873) and then two small "hubcaps" using the Owl Punch (118074).  The little peg that keeps the trailer from tipping over was made with a small piece of Smoky Slate about the same size as the wheels would be once attached.  I then punched 2 more circles from the owl punch for each end of the rolled up Smoky Slate.
 
 

I have to say, I was just simply GIDDY when I finished it.  It feels so awesome to create something without CASEing from others.  Seeing the trailer for inspiration isn't the same as a CASE.  LOL

Thank you for looking in today.  Have a wonderful Friday! 

Tomorrow I'm heading out with the girls to my upline's Holiday Extravaganza.  I'm so looking forward to crafting with the girls instead of doing the planning!  Wooo Hooo!
