Good morning!! Today is Thrifty Thursday over at My Creative Time.
We are to create any project- card, scrapbook page, or anything, using scraps/leftovers or recycled items.
For my project I decorated two Skittles candy tubes with left over scraps for my little sweethearts.
I was lucky enough to get these 50% off at my local base shoppette since it is so close to Valentine's Day. Though they are a little over a dollar each normally. So still not very expensive. My little guys don't care much for the candy hearts but love Skittles! So these will be perfect to give them.
For the heart shakers I used MCT: Sweethearts dies, scraps, acetate paper, pop dots, and glitter. Before I put the shaker all together, I stamped on the sentiment from MCT: Once Upon a Time.
To cover up the Skittles logo sticker, I cut a 2 1/2 strip of heart paper for each one and adhered it to the base. Then I I cut out coordinating edges using MCT: Fun Stitched Edges to jazz up the ends.
To finish the project, I stamped on the heart and "love you" sentiment from MCT: Once Upon a Time onto the MCT: Chunky Jar Accessories die. Then I tied it on with some Recollection's Twine.
