VC-Rocks July Blog Hop–Fancy Folds and 3D projects

I am a last minute addition to the July blog hop and am so glad to be part of it!

My project is a jar to hold my washi tape. The jar came from the Dollar Spot at Target (pronounced Tar Jay in my world, lol). I made it a 3D Stampin' Up! project by making some cute circle flowers that my Facebook Friend Krystal Z shared with me.

To make the flowers, I used my SU 2 1/2” circle punch, and cut a spiral into the circle ending in the center. Then, beginning at the center, I rolled the flower fairly tightly onto a quarter of a Jumbo Sticky round. I cut skinnier pie shaped pieces of the Jumbo Sticky round for the leaves, which were created by cutting one inch pieces of Pear Pizzazz  Cotton Ribbon and folding them in half in a V shape. I layered them from tip to base of the leaf shape.  You can see a leaf on either side of the bow I made.

The bow was made of a piece about 18 inches of the Pear Pizzazz ribbon that I curved back and forth, and then tied in the center with another length of ribbon to drape down the side of the jar. Finally, I used my new Blendabilities pens in Daffodil Delight and Old Olive to color some of my Jewels Basic Pearls and Jewels Basic Pearls Large. I placed some of the yellow ones in the center of the roses as shown well in the above picture, and scattered the rest of the yellow and green pearls around the lid to fill in spots. The paper used for the roses was from the Confetti Celebrations DSP (remember all DSP EXCEPT the Specialty DSP is on sale – buy 3 get 1 free).

I filled it up with my current collection of SU Washi (memo to self – ***NEED MORE WASHI***), and now it is sitting on my table, looking adorable! My oldest daughter walked in this morning to drop off the baby for me to keep for a bit and zeroed in on it with a compliment so I think it was a success!

Happy creating, and please come back and visit my blog from time to time!

Very cute. Need to see if my Tay-Jay has these jars as I need some place to store my wash tape too. TFS!
