Happy birthday Dad

Today is my fathers birthday and I really wanted to share the gorgeous card and coordinating jar of liquorice allsorts I made for him with my readers.

I took a regular pasta jar and using my circle dies and punches cut firstly a cardstock circle layered with another circle of DSP.  I used the now retired elegant soiree which I really love and just happened to have a little scrap floating around.    I glued these to the lid, covered with a layer of crystal effects and left to dry overnight.    Once that was all done I layered in the sweets and then finished the jar off with a double bow of crumb cake seam binding.    I just love how easy it is to take simple things and turn them into something spectacular.

Hope you enjoy looking.



  1. What a "sweet" gift for your Dad Julz! I have a couple more jars for you too!!

  2. Loving this gift - I'm sure your Dad will love it! And, yes, with a little imagination, you can transform just about anything from drab to fab! I've been inspired to hunt down the glass jars I have lying around to transform!
