Altered Christmas Jingle Bell Jar – The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project

Altered Talenti Gelato Jar

Altered Talenti Gelato Jar

For our The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project we were tasked to use an item that we would throw away, like a jar or bottle, and make a Christmas project out of it.  Well I used a jar and came up with this pretty!

I used three files from the cafe, the Christmas Bell Shaped Shaker Card for the bells on the front and the Christmas Colored Basic Shapes for the sentiment…

I added the two silver bells on the front with a cute sentiment.

And I used the Bell Shaped Card for the sentiment on the top…

Fabulous Pin Cushion – The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project

7 May

Fabulous Pin CushionIt’s time for another design team project for The Cutting Cafe!  We had a little different challenge this time.  We were to take a packaging item that we had used the contents of, that we would normally throw away, and alter it using one of the many background printable stamp sets available in the store.

My pin cushion above is made from an empty gelato container…

I used the Fabulous Background Printable Stamp Set.  I printed it on an cream colored card stock and added it around the jar.
