My nephew is coming for a visit tomorrow. He is in love with Thomas the Train. I made these for him to store his little trains in. I was going to give it to him for Christmas, but I just can't wait that long! :) I made it a little older so he would like it longer. I made them so they stand up. I am loving this Pop Up Neighborhood! I was excited when I saw the train. I love trains! All of the cuts are from PUN except for the smoke, that came from Accent Essentials.
I used several brands of papers. I can't remember them all. I had the perfect piece of train paper and made the most horrific mistake! I put it in upside down! ;( I only had one piece and I ruined it! Ugh! So, the middle part of the train has a new body! lol!
The J is a $1 store purchase from a couple of years ago. Sad, I'm just now using it! I used copper embossing powder on the engine strips. I haven't used embossing powder in forever! It was fun to rekindle an old skill! The boxes are wooden boxes I picked up from the dollar store some time ago. I'm on the spending ban otherwise I think I would have gone back to the store to get enough to do the whole entire train!!! This was one of the most fun things I have made in a long time!
Thanks for stopping by!
