Valentines and Animals at Craft Us Crazy!


Hi, there!  It's the grand re-opening of Craft Us Crazy!  The theme is Valentines/Love and/or Animals.  Okay, that makes it pretty easy to link up your creation.   Our sponsor this week is Stamp Fairy.com

The prize is a $10 gift certificate for items of the winner's choice!


I just love old stuff and I adore rocking horses!  We keep a rocking horse in our library that Lauren's grandpa made for her when she was little.  This rocking horse is based on a 1940s nutcup party favor. 


Above is the back side.  You can see I slipped in a bag of M&Ms instead of nuts.  Just used plastic wrap tied with ribbon.   I love the smell of M&Ms when I open the bag...is that a childhood thing?  

I'm sharing the template below that I (with my husband's help) put together to create the rocking horse.  You can click and save the image below.  I'm not sure (maybe someone can tell me) if the scan is the right size.  My horse is sized at about 5" long at the rockers.  Of course, it could be made bigger - any smaller and it might be tough to get goodies inside!


Okay, don't laugh!  It's a litte rough, but it will do the job!  Thanks for stopping by and be sure to go by Craft Us Crazy to see the other DT inspiration!

    This project is just wonderful and the M&M's are so way cooler than just plain nuts.

  3. I like the smell of almond M&Ms--they remind me of the Easter-basket cupcakes from all my egg hunts.

    The rocking horse is such a cute idea!
