GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOODDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD Morning everyone... Happy Tuesday. :) Here's a little something I came up with (thanks to our pal SweetMissDaisy and her awesome jar idea).. I needed 2 jars. 1 as a reveal gift for my little sister.. And the other for Maria who was my Winter Blues Partner. Since one of my most favorite color combinations are brown and pink I thought.... hmmm.. what better than chocolate and the new strawberry milkshake Whoppers?
For this project I found the jars at Wal-mart. I wish they had the next size smaller but these worked well (and I'm sure it gave Debbie & Maria a chocolate over haul when they dug into the malted milk balls. If these were mine I wouldn't have stopped until my stomach was churning... LOL) I then used pretty in pink, one of the DS paper's from my stash and very vanilla card stock. I stamped the sentiment from Time well spent in timber stazon and colored them with my copic markers.. Then came the embossing. I embossed the flowers from again Time Well spent in pink (on very vanilla) and brown (on pretty in pink) and then started cutting them out. Once they were all cut out I applied yellow and pink eyelets to the centered and then adhered them to the lid. I tied a light pink grosgrain ribbon to the lid and a wide grosgrain ribbon was tied to the jar. And finally I filled them with the whoppers... This would be a really neat idea for someone who doesn't get out much during the winter.. There should be enough chocolate here to hold them for at least a day or two.. Especially if the jar was in my house.. LOL
Here was my inspiration jar... This jar was filled with friendship tea from one of my favorite bloggers Michelle Wooderson (oh how I wish were neighbors... ). I've attached the link so that you can all pick up her recipe. She's sooo awesome !!! Thanks Michelle for your daily inspiration..
Well everyone. I'll have 1 more project to post before my surgery on Friday. So please stop back to check 'er out. Then I'll be away for a few days.. But I promise. I'll be back..
Happy stamping :)
