My children absolutely love Despicable Me and when part 2 came out, we were standing in line to see the movie. I made this basket for one of my employees at work after drawing his name for Secret Santa. Guys are sometimes hard to find a gift for but when he told me how he loves to spend time with his four children, I knew a movie basket would be perfect. I picket up these minions from PPPR as a freebie but they are still available for sale here http://www.prettypapergraphics.com/item_332/Minions-Cutting-Files.htm. If you follow Lisa's blog, you will find she is very generous with her files.
The minions in the basket are actually microwave popcorn. To make them I cute a piece of yellow cardstock 5.5" x 10" and scored it at 2" and 6". I folded it around the popcorn bag and glued it in the bag. To get the minions just the right size, I used my cameo to make a 4x6" square. I then imported my minions and sized them to fit on the square. I only cut the goggles and pants. I used a marker to draw their face on. Don't worry, there are red vines in the back. You just can't see them in the pictures. What is a movie without popcorn, candy and red vines (they are in their own category). These little guys turned out so darned cute.
Here it is all wrapped up with a bow and ready to be delivered to one lucky family.
I will be entering this in the following challenges:
