Eric couldn't join the army because he had flat feet. Not one to be put off by this he decided on another career path, one that would benefit from his particular shaped feet, and was soon setting up business as a wine presser.

He created quite a name for himself amongst those in the know, and his one-bird wine-making facility was soon in demand all over the world!

 Cheesy

Meet Eric








And his humble beginnings! Paper tissue and foil for his shape, scrapbooking papers and lots of glue, pins for eyes, and a pair of Halloween skele legs Cheesy


I had so much fun making him. Thanks for looking! Smiley

Sadly, he's retired now so he only presses for very special occasions. If he ever feels moved to start again, I'll snap some pics! Wink

Love it. Not your normal paper crafting, so that really made my day to see it was yours.
