Recycled Candy Jar

has a fun blog post for you all today
using either a jar or soup can recycled for the holidays!

I used a salsa jar I kept
and made it simply by die cutting a circle for the lid,
adding ribbon and pompom trim around the edge,
then printed a tag from
This is a printable PDF file with 14 tags on it...
very, very useful!!

After printing, I placed a die as shown
(I cut the Dec 25th first and placed over the die
so as not to cut it off)
then ran it thru my machine.
I added a red glitter pen to the words for more sparkle.

I found two snowflakes from my stash
and decorated with that.

So take a peek at The Cutting Cafe blog later today
and you can see all my teamies projects!!

The pompom trim really makes this, and the layered snowflake -- such fun things you have in your stash! I used to save all kinds of jars and tins, but most got cleared out when I revamped my stamp room. Now I'm thinking I should go see what's left. It would be fun to take something like this into my old workplace.
