Hi everyone! How can it be December already!?!?! And the 4th?!?! I’m still trying to wrap my mind around that fact that it’s almost the end of the year but I want to share a quick DIY canister project I created for ClearSnap that might inspire you to create a thoughtful gift to give to a family member or special friend.
I started with an empty hot cocoa tin that my sister had given me…nothing like up-cycling something that you would toss in the garbage can. 😀
I cut a piece of Red and Ivory Ticking Cardstock to fit around the lid and container and adhered.
I placed a scallop circle rubber stamp, from the Cookies Clear Stamp Set, onto an Acrylic Block and ink with Wicked Black Ink which I stamped onto a piece of patterned cardstock.
I fussy cut the stamped image out and adhered on top of container lid. I glued the chipboard button to the center of the lid an on top of the button I glued the felt ball. I added mini pom pom trim underneath the “lip” of the container. I cut one recipe card from the Black and White Recipe Cards Cardstock and stamped the mixing bowl and wooden spoon onto patterned cardstock. I fussy cut both images out and adhere to the bottom corner of the recipe card.
I also added the “To” and “From” to the tag stamp before inking with Wicked Black ink and stamp onto a white piece of cardstock. I fussy cut the tag out and punch a hole in the top of the tag. Next I inked the holly stamp with Wicked Black Ink and stamped onto a piece of green cardstock. I fussy cut, shape and add mini red gems to the berries and adhered the holly to the top of the tag. I finished off by tying the tag with baker’s twine to the top of the container. Now all I need is either candy or some sweet treat to add to the inside before giving as a gift. If you have any question about this project please let me know.
Thanks for stopping by, hope your Tuesday is wonderful and enjoy creating!
