Fruit Collage June Special

I'm back!! It seems like forever since I've had access to the internet, but in reality it has only been one week. We are moved (not quite all unpacked yet, but we're making progress).

I wanted to share another one of the June projects that I designed for The Angel Company's Promotional Playlist.

Originally, when I started the design for this jar I thought that it would be great for homemade strawberry jam (or grape since that image is also included in this set) but since I don't can, I didn't have any on hand. But, then while in a checkout stand I saw strawberry licorice!! What a fun gift idea!

Below, you can see a closeup of the image. It is colored lightly with aquacolor crayons and a dove blender. The image is stamped on TAC Kraft paper and embossed with black embossing powder. LOVE how that turned out!

Here is the lid. I used some makeup sponges to pad the lid and then glued it down inside using a hot glue gun. The flowers on the top were also hot glued on and they are from one of the Buttons & Blossoms embellishment jars that TAC sells.

To decorate the side, I tied the ribbon around the jar and attached it with red-lined tape (super heavy duty tape for scrapbooking), also in the TAC catalogue. I tied two little bows to accent the jar and also glued them on and then added the buttons.

Hope you enjoyed this gift idea! Be sure to check out the other projects on TAC's June Promotional Play List and REMEMBER that these sets are ONLY available until the end of JUNE with a $30 order!!
