In Kirby’s Epic Yarn for Nintendo Wii, everything looks as if it were made out of yarn, felt, fabric, and other crafty, scrapbooking material. This inspired me to make a craft based on Kirby’s Epic Yarn, so click to read more about it and check out what I made!
Nintendo has a rewards program called Club Nintendo, where you can register your first party games and consoles to earn virtual ‘coins.’ You can trade in these coins for various prizes, even rare Club Nintendo only games! A couple of months ago I used some of my earned coins to get some Kirby’s Epic Yarn sticker patches, four in all. I already had a different Kirby sticker patch that I got when I went to PAX in Seattle last year. So that makes five.
I got the sixth ‘parachute’ patch from Club Nintendo also. This is a good example of how quality focuses Nintendo is. I got an extra set of patches in the mail the other day with a note from Club Nintendo saying the patches they sent out before had a cosmetic defect to them. I didn’t notice anything different with mine, so maybe it was another batch? But as a consolation, they sent an extra patch that I didn’t own. I wonder if they made any other patches?
So now I had six Kirby patches, and I had an idea as to what to do with them. I got a shadow box on clearance at Wal-Mart, and stuck some green and blue felt in the rear of it for the background. Then I arranged and stuck the Kirby patches on that, and used some cotton balls as clouds, just like how they make the clouds in the Epic Yarn game! So here’s a picture of what I made, I think it turned out pretty well, don’t you? If you’ve ever made any video game related craft, please share in the comments section! –Cary
