Curvy Keepsake Monkey for Chinese New Year

February 6, 2016 No Comments

Busy, busy today!  I’m playing “taxi” and creating in between.  I picked up kids early this morning to take them to the  area Quiz Bowl – think Jeopardy played by several high school teams.  From there, depending on how the varsity team does – we’ll be off to Westchester University for Wind Ensemble Day that’s being run by the National Band Association.  So while mine is out this morning, I’ve finally created something that’s been in my head for about a month.  Thank goodness it’s out!  Now there’s room for other ideas.

As you may or may not know, Monday (February 8) is Chinese New Year or the Lunar New Year.

Each year in the Chinese zodiac has an animal attached to it and the new year will be the Year of the Monkey.

It’s traditional to give gifts as part of the New Year celebration and I’ve created something for my daughter to give to a friend.

Curvy Keepsake Monkey for Chinese New Year from theartfulinker.com

I used my Curvy Keepsake framelit (a must have in my book), to create a monkey gift box.

He’ll be filled with chocolate coins as a symbol of wishing a sweet and prosperous new year.

He’s made from Chocolate Chip cardstock with Crumb Cake accents.

Curvy Keepsake Monkey for Chinese New Year - detail - from theartfulinker.com

To make this cute monkey, I started with Crumb Cake punched with the Sweetheart punch for the upper face and the Extra Large Oval punch for the lower face.

Eyes and ears were punched with 1/2″ and 3/4″ circle punches.  The 1/2″ circle punch was also used for the nose.

The mouth is just an edge punch from the Extra Large Oval punch.

And the tail, well that was free hand cut while looking at a picture of a monkey tail.

Thanks for stopping by!

If you’re celebrating, I wish you Gung Hey Fat Choy
