Do you know someone who loves trail mix? I happen to know several people who would be delighted to get a large jar of trail mix as a gift, … it is their favorite treat! (And one of mine, too!)
For today’s project I decorated a large jar of this peanut-ty treat using the Carta Bella Paper Gone Camping collection
. Your outdoorsman would be delighted to receive this as he is heading out for a day of fishing. I mean, who wouldn’t love having a delicious snack to take along?!
The first thing I did was wrap the jar with a strip of the striped Campout paper
. I then added a band of the the fishing lure patterned Fly Fishing paper
on top of the striped paper. The top of the jar is decorated with a circle cut from the plaid paper in the 6×6 paper pad
Next, I fussy-cut three wood slices from the Travel Patches paper
and grouped them together on the front of the jar to anchor the rest of the decorative elements. The main piece is the Fishing Tackle Die Cut from the Frames & Tags Ephemera pack
. I added the fisherman sticker on top of the die cut along with a few trees and the “Fishing Hole” sign stickers
for a bit of scenery. A few die cut pine branches (Be Merry Branch Die Set
) are tucked behind the left side.
I tucked in a few more branches cut from the Classic Green Felt Designer Cardstock
on the right side of the label, and then added a group of fish “caught” … I mean CUT … from the Fish Facts Paper
. A bit of jute tied around the neck of the jar finishes everything off!
