Before I show you today's project, in case you missed it, I wanted to let you know that Stampin' Up not only released the new Thoughtful Branches bundle yesterday, but also a great new stamp set called I Stamped This, now available to order!
Now, onto the fun project I have to show you today! This super cute packaging uses the Jar of Love stamp set and the Everyday Jars Framelits to create a window to show a peek of the package contents!
How To Make It:
Start with the Cherry Cobbler cardstock cut to 4” x 11” and scored at 1-1/2”, 5-1/2” and 7-1/4”
With Basic Gray ink, stamp the large jar from Jar of Love onto the left side of the Whisper White card stock (3-1/2” x 3”).
Stamp the word LOVE from Jar of Love in Cherry Cobbler ink to the right side of the jar image and add other words in Basic Gray ink.
Stamp the fish from Jar of Love inside the jar image in Peekaboo Peach (vertically- see hint below).
Lay the scored Cherry Cobbler Cardstock with largest area at the top. Adhere the Whisper White stamped layer (framed closest to the score line~ leaving more room at the top) using Fast Fuse.
Use the “inside jar” framelit from Everyday Jars Framelits to cut through both layers, leaving a window in your jar. HINT: You should be able to cut out the goldfish at the same time if you stamped him vertically!
Fill the 3×6 Cellophane Gusseted bag halfway with fish crackers. Fold top down and use the Handheld Stapler to staple each side.
Insert bag into cardstock pouch, folding 1-1/2” scored edge over the top. Staple the 8" piece of Peekaboo Peach Ruched Ribbon to the top edge of the pouch (through all four layers: ribbon, cardstock, cello bag and cardstock= creating a “matchbook” pouch)
Tuck the front of pouch (with the jar) under the top (stapled) edge to close.
Tie the bow. Add the fish cutout to the front with Stampin' Dimensionals.
