Dad Cookie Pail - Throwback Thursday Challenge

Hi everyone! For Emma's challenge this week at she wanted us to make or alter a 3D item using the Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge. I was so excited when I bought this cartridge and then it sat on my shelf for over a year after that. I finally started using it when I discovered the Peachy Keen face stamps - they are so cute!

I was planning on baking my Dad some peanut butter cookies (his very favorite) for Father's Day then thought I could cover an ice cream pail to put them in. He is a farmer so I decided to follow that theme.

I used the Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge to cut out the man, his shirt, pants, hair and boots. I also used that cartridge for the cow. My Dad doesn't wear a cowboy hat so I had to get his baseball cap from Everyday Paper Dolls as well as the barn and the tractor. Hope this is ok! I used the Basic Cakes cartridge for the font on the lid of the pail.

Hope you like it! I know my Dad will at least love the cookies! He thinks I am obsessed with paper crafting because they didn't send me to kindergarten. HAHA.
