I’m using the Love Bites Cut It’s Projects from Lettering Delights to make these hilarious crocodiles. I just thought they were so cute and funny, I had to make them.
The 3D croc pieces cut out really easily but I stared at them for a while before I figured out how they went together. Actually, it’s quite ingenious. The scales and feet tuck into the cut lines in the crocodile. The eyes sit in little slits too.
I did have some trouble making it work as a pillow box but maybe that was just my user error. Regardless, he’s ADORABLE and he does work as a pillow box, it just took me a while.
The card was as easy as pie to put together. It’s so cute too, don’t you think? I love it. I used Stickles in the Fruit Punch color to give some glitter to the XOXO. I love Stickles! Don’t know what they are? Read these posts: What’s a Stickle? and Stickles compared.
You’ll have no trouble at all putting this card together! It’s perfect for Valentine’s Day or any time that you want to make someone have a smile as big as a crocodile.
