Yesterday, my dear hubby came home with a bag full of Creamy Caramels. All I can say is YUM!!! So last night, as I sat down to play with some ribbon, I found myself being drawn towards the pantry. I could hear those nasty little treats (disguised as a simple little sweets) calling my name. It wasn’t long before I had shown a handful of them who was boss! 😉
So what better way to celebrate my accomplishment than by creating a little treat jar for my scrappy moments. I had some sweet strawberry ribbon kicking around that I have been dying to use, and this seemed like a the perfect project. After all, if the sweet jar is draped in “good for you” food, that cancels out whats inside, right? Inspired by this cute paper strawberry tutorial I used some simple cardstock to create a strawberry and then a bit of distress ink to tone down the pink. The seeds were created with Liquid Pearls in Bisque, and the ribbon was looped and glued in place to create a pretty top to this former mustard jar.
So, this project made me think of my scrappy friends – are you scrapper snackers? If so, what little indulgences can we find in your scrappy spaces?
