* chup-ornaments

Posted on December 18th, 2006 by maitreya. Filed under Holiday, Paper Crafts.

Mark and I had a party on Friday and handed these out as favors. This is our 22 pound cat, Chupa, looking extra fat. All we did was print out the photo on cardstock, cut around the Chupa, and tape a loop of embroidery thread to the back. The tree looked pretty hilarious with so many Chupas looking out.

    I love your morbidly obese cat.

    This is so wonderfully funny! My parents-in-law have 4 or 5 cats (I’ve lost count). I wish they put up a tree, because they’d love decorating it with cat ornaments. Hmmm. Maybe I can think of something else, perhaps a Thanksgiving cornucopia of cats? :)

    I love this! I just got a colour printer so I’ll just have to find a good pic of our cat, though she is not as round as yours are! ;-)

    merry x-mas girl!
