 Today's challenge is to make a Stove Top Popcorn Cover Decorative Wall Hanging. (If you prefer, you could make any season or generic scene. That way you could use it year round!)

Here is Vickie's Tutorial on MFPSpeedyTV


 
The above project covers the Jiffy-Pop Popcorn pan using the handle as the hanger.
 
 
 
The above scene uses a "smooshed" aluminum pan as the base with lace and cover over it.  the tulle serves as the hanger.
Alternative bases for your wall-hanging could be cardboard, posterboard, paper plate, etc.
 
For both covers I used the Please Snow stamp set.

Here is a link to Sandy's Tutorial on MFPSpeedyTV.

My month as guest designer for The Outlawz Sunday CAS challenges is ending with this week's challenge....Use Diamonds and/or Pearls while keeping your project CAS (clean and simple).  I have enjoyed participating with the very talented design team!
