"Anything Goes" is a wonderful time to create those projects that you've been wanting to do, but keep putting off. This week, I created a candy container from a Sizzix die and the BasicGrey Herbs and Honey papers. When I first saw those papers, I knew that the little labels would be darling on a container of sorts. And they are! And, yes, you've seen me use this die before. I love it!
This project came together quickly. It was a matter of cut and glue. (aka FUN!)
The "lid" on the jar was created by swiping a few lines of paint across it. Easy!
The vellum was also cut with a die. I used scissors to cut triangles into the folds to create a lacy edge.
These little jars are so tiny that they make the suckers look huge. And we all know how small Dum-Dum's have become. At least they're are inexpensive, so I was able to tuck several of them in. (note: I originally tried Tootsie Pops, but they were too large and the jars kept tipping over. The small ones work best.) I think that I'm going to revisit this project in the fall and create some holiday-themed jars. Won't that be cute?
Meanwhile, what will you create this week?
