Love is in the Air Blog Hop - Robot Valentine

Welcome to Day 2 of the Love is in the Air Blog Hop, brought to you by the layout design team from Red Carpet Studio!

If you haven't hopped through Day 1 yet, make sure to do so!

This weekend the Red Carpet Studio design team would like to share with you love-themed projects to inspire you during this Valentine's Day season. Throughout the hop you'll see a variety of projects and we hope one or more of these wonderful creations inspire you to create.

If you've come from Tonya G's blog, you're in the right place. If you'd like to start at the beginning of the hop, please visit Red Carpet Studio.

For today's hop I made robot valentine's for my son's practice preschool class. I got the idea from, where else, Pinterest.


Here's my recipe:
Paper
   Dotty For You by Close To My Heart
Hershey Nugget for the body
Googley Eyes
Barn Door Distress Marker for the smile

Dimensions:
Card Base - 3" x 5.5"
Matting - 2.5" x 5"
Head - 1" x 1" and mounted with foam
Neck Bolt - 1.25" x 0.25"
Body Wrap - 1" x 3"
Arms - 0.5" x 4.5" scored and folded every 0.25"
Legs - 0.5" x 2.25" each, scored and folded every 0.25"
Heart and Neck were cut free hand

This is what the card looks like without the chocolate in place.


We also have some fabulous sponsors giving away prizes to those who comment on every stop of both days the hop!
3 digital stamp sets of the winner's choice

$6 gift certificate

"Whooo's Your Valentine?" Kit from Close to My Heart

12 yard ribbon set - Winner's choice of Red Hot Lover or The Yummy Collection

Please make sure to comment both days on every stop of the hop AND leave your contact information to be eligible to win. Winners will be announced on Tuesday January 29th at Red Carpet Studio along with the winners of our "Sparkle" layout challenge.
