For the last three weeks I have been whipping up Cool Bean Critters on both cards and layouts. Cool Beans are the name that Jillibean Soup has given their red, green and brown button sets.
The trick is then to think of critters that are red, green or brown in colour. The largest buttons make great bodies and the smaller ones can be used as other body parts. Then, considering the shapes of the Harvest (darker) and Spring Fling (bright) felt flowers and leaves, create additional body parts for the critter (i.e., claws, wings, antlers, and paws). The twine can then be used to create legs and other extensions to the body (i.e., legs and arms).
