Happy Saturday, everyone! I just finished up a fun kids stamp camp today at the studio, where everyone made 4 different cards...even my kids came to play (although Morgan did get a bit distracted wanting to show everyone his "Evolution of Dance" moves!)
Nonetheless, we all had fun and I look forward to my next kids class on the 30th of December, where we'll be making "Thank you" cards to use after the holidays.
Okey doke... moving right along to today's Holiday Extravaganza idea, a candy jar using the small "Jingle All The Way" Décor Element.
This was one of the projects I had planned for Friday's Breakfast Television segment, but we plum ran out of time. I'm not sure how exactly I thought I would get through 3 different items in only 5 minutes -- maybe I needed to transform magically into SpeedySuperStamper™ for a day?
Anyways, that's why I'm doing a photo tutorial for you today, so you can still see how easy it was to make. Here we go...
Use your bone folder to gently burnish the surface of the Décor Element. This will help transfer the vinyl accent from it's backing to the transfer sheet. Be sure to do this over the entire image, which will ensure that the accent will transfer properly.
Flip the image over and peel it away from the grid bpaper backing, carefully and slowly. You'll want to do this by pulling back up and away from the surface, so that the entire image peels away. If part of the image isn't "catching", just lay the protective cover back down and burnish that area a little more.
Lay your glass jar down on your table and carefully place the Décor Element into place on the jar. Use your bone folder again to now burnish it ONTO the jar.
Carefully peel away the paper, leaving the image adhered to the jar. Easy as that!
Now it's just a question of filling 'er up with candies and adding a pretty bow to the lid. Isn't it purdy?? :)

Have a great weekend everyone and happy stamping,
