My Craft Spot Inspiration - Snowballs for Sale!

Hello Everyone!

Thank You for joining me over at My Craft Spot for some inspiration using My Craft Spot products. 

Today's "Snowballs for Sale!" Jar Shaped Card was made with this week's My Craft Spot Monday Challenge #81 - FROSTY DAYS in mind. When I think of FROSTY DAYS, I immediately think of SNOW!

 Inspired by a card created by Betsy from Paper, Scissors and Superheros, I started by making a shaped card using the mason jar cut from the Cricut Doodlecharms Cartridge at 5". I then cut the inside layer from a sheet of the My Mind's Eye Winter Wonderland 6x6 Pad. A second layer was added cut from Clear Craft Plastic to give the illusion of a real Glass Mason Jar filled with snowballs. 

 I then tied some of My Craft Spot's "Sky Blue" Crinkle Ribbon around the jar and made a double loop bow. I centered it with some Ivory Jute - available HERE at My Craft Spot - and a snowflake cut from the Cricut Winter Frolic Cartridge.

The mason jar was then filled with "Snowballs" by hot gluing white tinsel PomPoms to the Clear Craft Plastic.

The "Snowballs for Sale!" Sentiment from the My Craft Spot "Winter Wonderland" Stamp Set was stamped to a sign cut from the Cricut Freshly Picked Cartridge at 2" and made it a little longer. It was then inserted between the patterned paper and Clear Craft Plastic.

I completely forgot to take a picture of the inside. I cut out another jar layer and stamped it with the "Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow!" Sentiment and some Snowflake Images from the My Craft Spot "Winter Wonderland" Stamp Set.  But here is a quick dimension look at the Snowball Jar.

I hope you have enjoyed my "Snowballs for Sale!" Jar Shaped Card

  7. Hi Marlene! I saw this ADORABLE jar of snowflakes on My Craft Spot, and just HAD to come by and see it closer and tell you how very much I LOVE it. What an adorable idea. I hope you don't mind that I "lift" this idea and use it for myself. I really want to create one of these, and hope that you find it flattery that I want to copy your idea. Please stop by my blog and let me know if that's OK with you. I will, of course, give you credit for the idea. It's just TOO CUTE not to make one. Thanks for sharing this. I also had a lot of fun playing along in this week's challenge at My Craft Spot.
