I also love Jars of Whimsy.
Do you know what those are? You take a jar and then shove it full of really cool things. I put ribbon, microbeads, trims, paint, chipboard pieces, tons of fun stuff that the recipient would like.
I wanted to make my jar of whimsy extra Halloween-tastic for my friend who loves all things Halloween. I knew I wanted to glue a giant crow with a banner in its mouth, like it was stealing it, ya know? I actually bought this diamond die for this purpose.
I found my paper...I know that the Pink Paislee Queen Bee line wasn't exactly made for Halloween, but I like the colors and the way the gray looks kinda spooky!
I sent my paper through with the die.
I had to poke a hole through the crow's beak to shove the banner in...but I LOVE it! I hope she does too! I also added some tags to the outside of the jar. Love that new Tim Holtz Sizzix Die...I knew I wanted to cut out some gears in corrugated cardboard...next...Metal!
