Made by Billie Coker
Had so much fun making this. Lots of time but worth it.
I don’t eat cereal and I couldn’t wait for my friend’s kids to eat 6 boxes of cereal so I went through my stash and used what I had. I used some thicker cardboard for most of it and a heavy poster board for the rest. Like Jonni I don’t recommend using the thicker one. I got it to work but it was more challenging. And I had already finished putting it together before the revised pattern came out. I was okay with the first. I have since ordered the right cardboard for next project.
I changed direction from my first go round. I painted it with acrylic paint but wasn’t feeling it. So I used collage papers I had made. It was more time consuming but I love it now.
This is the first time using Jonni’s patterns. I am amazed at how much work goes into making them. I have already purchased 3 more.
Advice I would give is to watch the videos first. Saying that because I didn’t until I was into it. The videos really help. Jonni does a great job.
