In a Pickle? Gift Ideas-Day 10


Today's idea is a continuation of our food motif:) I had to chuckle when I read the phrase. I could use this sentiment daily. I thought it was a really clever play on words.
  • For the jar I created a belly band out of some old Designer Series paper. The paper I had wasn't quite long enough to go around the jar so I used two pieces and stuck them together using Sticky Strip. (HINT: This is a strong tape that is great for items you need to hold together. It is extremely strong.)
  • Next I printed out the sentiment on some So Saffron card stock, trimmed it with my paper cutter, and adhered it to a trimmed piece of Brilliant Blue card stock using some SNAIL adhesive.
  • Before adhering it to the jar I had punched two holes with my Crop-A-Dile into the Brilliant Blue card stock so that I could lace some white curling ribbon through it. I used that to tie a bundle of yellow shredded gift bag paper to the tag. (HINT: Just a little something 3-D that POPS from the tag can make a big difference.)
