A yummy container

I wanted to make a fun and yummy container for Chocolate powered Chex yummies I like to make at Christmas time. These are perfect gift ideas for friends and family. I used recycled (GO GREEN) flavored water containers...Example, Crystal Light, Walmart brand or Wylers. Clean them from outside and inside. Easy....1.2.3.
Then I used my cricut to cut out the tag form. Used my Design paper to cut the next layer and then used my computer to generate my saying..(Printmaster has all my fonts). Printed that on Vellum. I sewing machine stitched the three layers together. Using my icicle punch on top.
Next, I used my hot chocolate MS punch and added white puff paint to make it look like whip cream on top. Neat effect...
Then for the flower on top (black and white with red button) I used my punch for the follow cutting out black ones and white ones and interlocked them. Also, my MS punch for the button and embroidery thread to make the button look sewn on.
Red Ribbon to attach the tag with a glue dot to keep it in place. I then used DP to cover the container and used a fancy edge scissors where the paper came together.
There you have it.
I will fill these with with Chex mix or Powered Chocolate Chex that I like to make around Christmas time.

Let me know what you think of my idea. I am really happy with the way they turned out. You never know what you can think of. Me- I love trying to recycle and go green with projects.
Have a great week.
Be blessed!!
