Cannery Candy Holder

I'm excited to show you my projects from my workshop yesterday!  I didn't showcase ANY cards at this workshop due to two facts, one we JUST finished a card making class with the same ladies, and two, my hostesses was looking for ways to give "handmade' gifts this Christmas, and you guessed it, I'M ALL ABOUT THAT!  So, the first little project was this mini candy holder that I have made several of already, and since during our card class we used it for a card, I wanted to make sure they got to see it's not always about cards with our products.  I stamped two jars from the stamp set Perfectly Preserved stamp set in Soft Suede, and cut them out with the matching dies called Cannery Framelits.  I then cut a coordinating peice of Crumb Cake cardstock to 1 3/4 x 4 1/2 and scored on the short side and 1/2" each side, and then the long side 1 1/2 and 3 1/2" and then assembled to make the middle for holding the treats.  I glued a piece of our Essentials fabric (Old Olive polka dot piece) to a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock and ran the whole thing through with the lid to the Cannery die set and attached it to the front. I then wrapped a piece of Early Expresso twice around the jar and tied it.  The front I stamped the pumpkin from Button Buddiesn and added a button from the Brights collection of buttons.  I stuck two little Crunch bars in the container.   Tommorrow, I will show you the second project I demonstrated, and on Wednesday, I will show Jenna's treats for school....
