{yum}

The movers will be here in about twenty minutes to haul it all off to the new place. I'm starting to get nervous that all my furniture won't fit! I don't know where all this STUFF came from!? Anyhow, I don't have much time to blab on and on like usual, so let's get to the point:
Here's what I did:
I started with Whisper White card stock and used one of the new PaperTreyInk sets to design my own patterned paper. I then cut two strips of 3"x6" and adhered them around the can. I used my corner rounder to create the scalloped edge around the top and bottom. It's cut from Bazzill card stock. Next, I stamped out "{yum}" with Technique Tuesday stamps and trimmed them keeping a small white edge. I then attached these to the green Bazzill card stock and trimmed it along the brackets. The small blue flowers are from Doodlebug Design Inc., and most of the ribbon on the handle is from May Arts. Don't ask where the rest is from... I have no idea! After that, I attached the black and white gingham around the center of the can before pop-dotting the label to the front. It didn't feel complete to me at this point, so I took my black journaler and added tons of lines and dots to the title and to the patterned paper as well. All that's left to do is add the candy. And...that's it!
