After turning the berry basket into a Halloween treat basket, I started looking for other dies that could be used to hold treats. I discovered the Sizzix jar and spoon die which I thought would be cute and could hold just the right amount of candy and/or small gifts.
The monster 12x12 Carte Bella card stock I purchased at HM Ben Franklin Crafts had appropriate graphics and was of a weight sturdy enough for this project. To make the jar and spoon more realistic I added a pieces of silver vellum to the jar top and spoon bowl A cute monster button (with the shank cut off) was a fun addition to the candy jar spoon.
From this photo you can see that I used clear acetate to form the side of the jar. I also die cut acetate to go over the jar front and back to make them shiny like a real jar. The 'hairy' ribbon is just some leftover lei yarn and the skull pick (red dye painted over the wood part) came from a cupcake Halloween decoration set. I think the fiberfill makes a spooky 'smoke' to stuff between the treats in the jar. The paper (MME, I think) for this jar was a bit too thin for the project so I used spray adhesive to glue it to some cardboard before die cutting the pieces.
I think you will have lots of crafting fun if you purchase this die. It would make sweet baby shower table favors or a unique gift box for a birthday present. I know that your creative mind is already making plans of how to use this wonderful Sizzix die from BFC. Wouldn't it be a perfect gift for one of your crafty friends? Okay, time to do some holiday shopping and crafting!
