This post is a little .... crass-ty.
I can't help it, though. Ever since I brought a box of Land O Lakes butter home last week, I haven't been able to open the fridge without snickering when I see it.
I fully blame my father.
What you should know about my father first is that he's an incredible dad, he's beyond brilliant and this craft in no way reflects on his level of maturity.
That said, I think it's hilarious that he showed me this particular "craft" when I was a kid. I can't remember exactly when, but I'm sure it was jr. high or younger at least. Apparently it was something he and his high school buddies did for laughs, and I have to admit that it made me laugh hysterically the first time I saw it and just the idea of it still sends me into fits of giggles. Call me immature. Call me low-brow. I don't care.
I now give you the turning-a-butter-box-into-a-nudie-joke.
Step one, use a craft knife to cut around three sides of the butter that's in her hands. I also used a dull edge to lightly score the top of the butter to make it fold up neatly.
Now cut the box just under her knees (save that part that says "butter" - it's a great typeface and will come in handy in collages and stuff)
Next fold the box up once and then once again - you see where I'm going with this, right ...
Now enjoy lifting up the butter and getting a peep at the knee-boobs!
I miscalculated the cutting/folding part a bit and it looks like she's got green fringe coming out of her "boobs" here and the box ripped a little at the fold. But you get the idea...
Now, before anyone starts commenting about offensive, immature, pointless crafts: Yeah, this isn't some high-brow, high-skill craft. I use the term "craft" lightly here, but since I did use a craft knife and a cutting pad ... Mostly, this particular project just brings back memories of my dad sharing a little bit of his childhood with me when I was a kid myself.
So I guess the question now, is .... when can I show this to my kids?
