Things to Put Things In

Doesn’t that sound straight out of Winnie the Pooh?  The Bear of Very Little Brain seemed to be happy with containers.  We made a few different containers using the Owl Occasions set:

Here’s that chubby owl with a Bigz Stocking on a little frosted bag that just barely survived our class!  These bags are a little smaller than the classic kraft bag, and I find them a little more useful too.  Just run that stocking through your Big Shot with a TIEF (we used the Argyle folder) and stick it onto the bag with Glue Dots.  Glue dots rule!

Next up is the Fancy Favor box – one of the most useful, practical Bigz XL dies Stampin’ Up! carries.  There are two Fancy Favors here – one constructed as usual, the other cut short and folded over at the top  to make a lid.  Here’s a better look:

The sides are constructed in the usual way, but the bottom is rolled over like a paper bag instead of folded like the bottom of a box.  Because the top and bottom are exactly the same size, it can be a little tricky to put the top on – I find if you don’t roll it over until it’s fitted on top you have better luck.  And of course every project is better with a little bit of tulle and some Champagne Glimmer paper!!

This last project is so easy it’s almost embarassing.  Cut some fabric – we chose the Essentials Designer Fabric – and place it under the jar ring.  Stamp a quick tag with Owl Occasions and cut it out with the Decorative label punch.  Add a little bling and some ribbon around the jar ring and you are finished – except for filling the jar of course!
