WELCOME to the November Remarkable Stampers Pinworthy Blog Tour. This month we are showing great pinworthy ideas for GIVING THANKS!  Be sure to "Pin" any great ideas by hovering over the photo and a P should pop up and you click on that and pin it. Otherwise go to the bottom of any post I put up and click on the Pinterest P to pin!

This month I created a scarecrow topper using some SU! Framelits and card stock.  I'm making these for Thanksgiving to give as little takeaways after dinner.  You can also create these for friends, teachers, and coworkers.  I actually saw something very similar to this on Pinterest, so I pinned it and created it with some modifications. I'm so sorry I can't remember who pinned or created this guy.  Mine is not exactly like the pinterest one but close.  Isn't this guy cute?
The REESE's Peanut Butter cups package is certainly the perfect color for the Scarecrow's body.  I know those I give these two are going to be pretty happy!
The way I made this was to die cut a piece of card stock with the largest SU! square framelit which happens to be scallop.  After you die cut it, fold it in half.  (you can enlarge any of the photos in this post by clicking on the photo.  If you get the P symbol, pin it!  by the way, the photos that show some of the steps to making this scarecrow are sideways, probably because that is the way they loaded from my phone, sorry.)
Die cut the eyes using the SU! circles framelits.  I found these to be a better size than the hand held SU! punches, but that is an alternative.  For this project, I used the 2 smallest which were a nice size. 

Also die cut part of the largest scalloped square by SU! so that you have a piece that can be cut with the SU! FRINGE SCISSORS (love these!!!) and then attach to his face and crinkle up the fringe cut to make scarecrow straw hair.  Love it.
Punch out a flower and adhere it to your homemade hat.  You can use your stampinwrite marker to cross hatch the hat.  I used the word window punch for the hat brim and then just cut the top of the hat freehand.  The flower can be added.  I also attached a SU! rhinestone that I hand colored with the SU! Blendabilities.  These are great for coloring on non porous substances.
I have a selection of SU! clear cello bags and this size is perfect for this project.  Find some type of candy bar for the body. And voila....he or she - is so cute!!!
Now head on over to Andi's blog for more great GIVE THANKS Pinworthy projects.  And...have a wonderful upcoming Thanksgiving - just 2 weeks away.
