{a sweet challenge at Paper Issues!!}

Paper Issues is challenging you to create something sweet!!!

I altered this clear Art Warehouse can.

{thanks - you're so sweet.}

Using October Afternoon and Pink Paislee pps, red Bazzill, and a Martha Stewart edge punch, I added rows of paper to the can. Paper is topped off with some red pleated ribbon. I heat embossed the flower chip piece with yellow Zing!, backed it w/pp and stitched buttons down w/red DMC.

The can's top uses all the same ingredients, plus two fiskars sentiment stamps. Lemon drop twine from the Twinery was tied around the circle top. The tiny card completes this sweet gift set. All I need to do is bake some cookies and somebody's gonna be so happy. Sweet, right?!


Hope this inspires you to create something that's totally sweet!!! :) :)
Thanks for stopping by!
hugs, patti
