Master crafter challenge

Bare with me please while my blog is under construction. I am having problems with my background. So so sorry. Anyways back to the challenge. I am so excited to be a part of this challenge over at She is hosting a master crafter challenge. What is this you may ask? Well basically we had to incorporate the following items that were mailed to us in our project:
- Scissor Mouse sponsored by Westcott
-DCWV Rockstar mat stack sponsored by DCWV Deals
-Cotton Bag Sponsored by State line Bag Co.
-1/2 sheet of Rhinestones sponsored by Queen & Co.
-Sentiment stamp sponsored by Pink by Design
- 2 Assorted Buttons
realizing that one thing is a tool, and may not be used as part of the project, but used to make the project. We may use other things from our stash to make our project.

On Oct.4 we will be linking our wonderful projects up and we get to vote on the best ones. The person with the most votes will get to choose their prize from the list of prizes and then the others will be drawn randomly.

Please Remember Voting will begin at 12:01 am on the 4th as well, and will last for one week, until October 11, 2012 at 12:02 am CST.

Without further ado here is my project for the challenge

You see that guitar right there.. Yep it's paper cute huh? I made it using an SVG Cuts file called Spring Birdhouse. It was actually a birdhouse file but I did some altering in Silhouette Designer Studio edition and turned it into an awesome guitar. The paper used is from the rock star stack that was required. If you look closely I incorporated the green gem stones to look like the guitar frets. I used fishing string as the guitar strings and green brads along the bottom to hold the strings down. Using basic shapes in SDSE I created guitar picks to be housed inside the cute little bag, which I stamped with the required stamp that says play. I also decided to decorate the bag a bit by using some cute buttons and twine. I also used the EP shape tool to cut out a skull from the rock star paper and use as decoration for the bag also.

Here is better picture of what the outside of the bag looks like. Cute right?
