Primary Colour School Mice

When children start primary school in Germany, they receive a 'Schultuete' (school cone) on their first ever schoolday filled with allsorts ... sweet treats but also little useful bits and pieces like rubber, little paper pads, ... this is my little version of such a cone - perfect for the new Gingersnap Creations color challenge: Primary Colours
It was great fun to create these little mice and so easy as well. I used a Rayher template and TracyAnn digital paper. All you need to decorate them are pearls for their eyes, little pompom noses, whiskers and little tails which I crocheted. For the ears I cut double-sided paper circles, made a cut into the middle and glued them together so that the ears have now a bit more of a cone shape.
All I need now is something for the filling and some first school day pupil (LOL)

Come and play with us at Gingersnap Creations and show us your primary colours. Have a great weekend, Petra.
