Evening everyone! Nuffnang is having another competition to win tickets to the Regional Blog Awards.
For those who haven’t heard of the competition it’s basically to show how fun Pringles are and you have to use the word “Krrunch” in place of the word “fun”.
Anyway this is my entry, I hope you enjoy it!
Today has been a very boring day 🙁
There is absolutely nothing to do. It’s my day off so there’s not even any work to keep me occupied.
There is nothing going on online either *_* No new emails, slow Twitter day and no comments to reply to!
Luckily my savior arrives! James is home and behold he’s brought lots of yummy Pringles 😀
Yaaaay! Maybe today won’t be so boring after all! Maybe it will be a Krrunch day!
After just one chip something amazing starts to happen….
I am transformed from plain old boring Violet to……………..
SUPER AMAZING KRRUNCH PRINCESS GIRL VIOLET! Gone are the boring pajamas and pig tails, replaced with a hime style ensemble! I’m ready to rid the world of bad style every where, look out people with bad fashion sense, IT’S KRRUNCH TIME!
Hmm now that you mention it, this outfit looks a little bit plain doesn’t it? I wonder how I could jazz it up a bit?
Hmm maybe Pringles will come to my rescue again!
Now what do I need? I’ll separate the cardboard from the coloured front and go from there.
Now I can gather up some other craft supplies life felt, glue and the staple of a Princess’ closet: lace!
I’ve got lots of ideas what to do but I’m going to start with 3 to begin with. Here is what I’m going to start with…
I cut a bigger circle out of the Pringles box to make the base of idea #1 and taped them together. I added some glue to make sure it would stick and left to dry.
Idea #2 sees me cut a small tube cover the outside with some squishy batting.
Now time to decorate idea #2, I got some nice ribbon and started wrapping it around the tube.
Here’s what it looked like when that stage was finished…Then I covered Idea #2 in pink felt to match my dress!
I added some pretty decorations to cover all the yucky edges and left it to dry again. Can you guess what it is yet?
While idea #1 and #2 are drying let’s get started on making some decorations for them! Remember when I stripped off the wrapping from the Pringles can? Well I’m going to make some roses with it. First cut it into strips varying in width depending on how big you want the finished rose to be. Then fold them in half so the red is on the outside.
Start at the end and fold it backwards on an angle. This is actually how you make ribbon roses but it works the same with paper.
Start curling it around. Fold the long edge backwards again and keep rolling, continue doing this over and over again.
It’s starting to look like a rose! Keep going until you reach the end of the paper and glue the end out of the way.
Repeat and make a bunch of them to decorate everything with 😀
Did you guess what Idea #1 was? It’s a mini top hat! Now add some roses and ribbons to make it even prettier.
And Idea #2? It’s a bangle! Add some roses to that too, everything looks better with roses!
Now those ones are finished, time to move on to Idea #3! I cut a Pringles can to this shape:
Next I glued the lids on both sides and covered it in felt and lace. I added a ribbon handle and used one of the roses I made as the closing mechanism.
So Pringles inspired me to make all of these adorable pieces!
Now to model them all! Cute right? Not bad for a couple of Pringles cans and lace!
Thanks Pringles, you sure made my day Krrunch in the end ^_^
This outfit looks pretty good now? I am ready for a night out on the town! (Preferably in Singapore *hint hint*)And a close up to end it all nicely ^_^ SUPER AMAZING KRRUNCH PRINCESS GIRL VIOLET TRIUMPHS AGAINST A PLAIN BORING OUTFIT!What do you guys think, am I in with a chance? It’s Krrunch time, get playful! Cross my fingers that Nuffnang will like it too ^_^
As a lot of you would know I’m with Nuffnang for my blog advertising and I love them to death!
Who doesn’t like getting presents right? As well as organizing my advertising they have also built a community for bloggers which I love being a part of. It’s kind of like a big family and because they are based here in the Asia Pacific area it’s not like talking to someone on the other side of the world!
And they send me presents which rocks!
Outfit- Skirt and jacket: Angelic Pretty Stockings- Myer Beret- Portmans Shoes- some place in the City, customized
Hmm it feels very heavy! I wonder what’s inside it? Open it up and all the Nuffy goodness pours out!
First thing to come out is a $10 Coles Myer gift voucher! Yaaay! Nuffnang is having a competition at the moment where the blogger who spends this voucher in the most creative or frugal way wins a $100 voucher, I have an awesome idea which I’m going to try out tomorrow so wish me luck!
And a lovely letter welcoming me to the Nuffnang family 😀
Guess what? I designed that little guy in the corner of the letter! How cute is it that they actually used my silly sketch on their letterhead ^_^
Now the rest of the awesome stuff… This is a sample pack of Redken hair supplies for girls! How cool is it that the samples are actually in usable sizes instead of those stupid little packets? I’m going to try it out and let you know how it works on my hair!
And there is a bottle of Blackberry/Vanilla tea from Spring Valley and John West Tuna with Beans. The tea was super yummy! I haven’t tried the tuna yet, I think I might let James have it because he’s a big fan of beans ^_^
And something which will be important later on in this post… a matching pack of Redken hair supplies for boys! Big sample sizes and information books in this one too 😀 Also there is a packet of Leggo’s Italian Beef Casserole base thingy which will be my dinner tonight! Thank you Nuffnang for feeding me for a day ^_^
Taadaa! All of the fun stuff together!
I mentioned that Nuffnang is having a competition with who can spend their Coles Myer voucher in the most creative/frugal way so I decided to put my thinking cap on and come up with something fun to do with it… Did I not mention that my thinking cap is actually the box that my items came in?
Then I decided that instead of entering that competition I would make up my own… May I present “THE MOST CREATIVE USE OF PACKAGING”
I fashioned the tissue paper the presents were wrapped in into a beautiful gigantic bow!
Super adorable and attractive right? I totally deserve a special prize for creativity and cuteness! Got to make sure it’s straight! Don’t worry I’m going to go buy my actually competition entry tomorrow 😛
Now if you remember I mentioned before you should take notice of the men’s hair products from Redken… I decided to experiment with them on James! He wasn’t so keen on the idea especially seeing as he shaves his head. I said too bad! After chasing him around the room for 10 minutes I finally pinned him down 😀
Apparently it was very cold ^_^ It smelled delicious though!
Make sure to rub it in well, lather rinse and repeat! Poor sad James he looks so miserable… oh well!
He was only sad for a minute though because then this happened…..
Giant afro hair of doom! Very suave! I’m sure I’ll be fighting all the ladies off him with a stick XD
