I created a couple of little candy canisters for Christmas. Being a teacher, I am always looking for little, inexpensive, but thoughtful gifts to give fellow teachers, aides, bus drivers etc. I found these blue canisters at Michaels in the dollar bins. I decided to work with the blue in them by using paper from Basic Grey. I simply used my scalloped border punch then adhered the paper to the canister. For the top, I used my circle Nestibilities. The image and sentiment are from the JB 08775 Something Sweet stamp set.
The snowman was colored in using Copics and then cut him out. The sentiment was stamped on a separate piece of paper, cut out with a circular Nestie. Then I placed a smaller round Nestie in the center so when I airbrushed I was left with a white rim. I placed the snowman in the center with a pop dot. I added white Flower Soft to the "ground" to act as the snow.
To dress up the canisters I added a pretty satin bow and then a "sugared" snowflake. I did this by cutting the snowflake with my Spellbinder's snowflake die, coated it with glue and added Diamond Dust. This is a very chunky glitter with lots of sparkle. To add a bit of color, I sprayed it with Glimmer Mist. After it was dry, I tied it to my satin bow. Now, just add some pretty Christmas candy, and you've got a great little gift!
Stop back tomorrow to see Michele's next Christmas Project.
