One Little Monkey Hanging From a Vine

This project came about as a request from my sweet sister-in-law. She sent me a picture of a monkey wind  twister and wanted to know if I could make something similar to it with my Gypsy. Here is what I came up with:

This thing is really LONG, it is about 2 1/2 to 3 feet long (maybe longer, I still need to measure it). It has two intersecting tree limbs, a long swirly vine and a double sided monkey stamped with darling Peachy Keen Stamps all interconnected with baker's twine.

This was A LOT of fun to make. I will definitely be making more in the future.

Here is a picture of the original inspiration. I changed some things up just by personal preference.

And here is the cute little double sided monkey again! I wanted to submit this for the Scrappy Mom's Create a Critter challenge.

Items Used:

Create a Critter Cricut cartridge
Don Juan Cricut cartridge
Cappuccino Twine from The Twinery
Peachy Keen Stamps - Everyday Character Face Parts
Peachy Keen Stamps - Basic Paper Doll Faces
Black Zig Marker
Sakura White Gellyroll pen
