My parents are on an eight-week East coast to West coast trip with my aunt and uncle following along in their own RV. They are having a blast and especially enjoyed Yellowstone. They are hitting it all from the high brow (presidential libraries) to the low-brow (Branson, Mo., where "Branson puts the show in the Show-Me state").
Before they left, I made a little treat jar and card for my folks.
I recycled a jar I had around the house and filled it with their favorite candy. The jar was a great size, because a 12-inch paper strip fit around it perfectly.
I used the RV patterned paper as the base and added a border punched strip above and below. I stitched those together then wrapped them around the jar. To decorate the top, I traced the lid onto patterned paper then cut out the circle and glued it on. I also added a doily and sticker on top.
Around the lid, I added a red ribbon, first sewing a zig zag stitch for a decorative touch, and some fun red twine from Trendy Twine. The label is a journaling card with alpha stickers and a little birdie.
For the card, I echoed the red ribbon and used patterned paper and stickers for a quick coordinating look.
The card is based on this sketch from The Sampler challenge.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a great weekend!
