Lightning McQueen!

My Grandson's birthday is coming in September and I wanted to do something special for him!  He adores Lightning McQueen from the movie, CARS.  So when I saw Lynn Pratt's tutorial for this race car box - I had to try it!  Now it is not as nice as Lynn's but what fun I had making it! I think with a little more practice I can improve.  It didn't help that we had a hurricane coming through this weekend!  The wind and the rain were terrific!  We had high humidity and that does not help when you are using glue in your studio! Nothing would stick!!  Then, of course, we lost our electricity for a few hours.  All in all we were lucky the hurricane was more of a tropical storm. Below are a few more pictures- check out Lynn's blog for the instructions.  I ordered some Stampin Up products and selected this tutorial for free!

I just love the eyes!  They really bring the car to life!  I think I will put some sweets in the box! I hope he likes it!


  1. This is so cool! Ezra will love it especially if it is full of candy! Great job!

  2. Oh my gosh.... Ezra will love it .. It looks so much like the real thing. You did a great job! He's gonna really be impressed...
