Sweet circuits Robot

Cuttlebug Be Inspired Challenge 83

Hello everyone meet Brobot, the friendly and ever so sweet robot. This week our cuttlebug challenge is all about kids. Fun right?
I had to get a gift ready for my nephews 4th birthday to go with his  robot card. This is what I think about on those sleepless nights...... well not robots exclusively of course, but all manner of 3D projects keep me perplexed and  chronically awake. :)


If you want to make your own robot, and if you have a soft spot for them like I do {stems from lost in space} I just adored that blinking robot protector of Will Robinson's! You will need a clear paint can from the craft store, 5/8" dowels and a handful of misc parts and pieces. His head is a tin with diamond plate embossed metal sheet. He has a strip of embossed silver card stock, and a dial cut from the "from the kitchen' cricut cartridge.


To sweeten the circuits I filled him full of silver foil wrapped kisses, for him to share with the party guests. Or to savor one at a time. I can just see this as a centerpiece, or an awesome gift package for a rolled up Shirt or Legos.One thing is for sure, it is a gift that will most likely register in the memory banks of any childhood!
