With Sprinkles on Top!

Here's another project using a label and text from the "What's in Your tin? 1" set to create a super easy little candy tin. For this project you need: colored glass beads, sticky strip, a tin, my new stamps, and markers (Sakura Glaze pen optional, but boy, does it make it look yummilicious!)

I colored the different letters on my stamp using SU! bold bright markers (to match the bead assortment), huffed", then stamped. I put some Sakura glaze over each letter and added a few sprinkles to give it a "gumdrop" look. I wrapped my sticky strip all the way around the lid's edge. Then I pressed it into my container of beads until all it the sticky part was completely covered, pressing them in again with my fingers to embed them really well in the adhesive. They will NOT be falling off!
Isn't that fun? (and look good enough to eat??) I LOVE all the elements the beads add to the project: color, shine, texture, whimsy. Looking at the tin makes me think of jellybeans, sundae fixings, and the amazing glass art I saw in Venice all at once! I hadn't known what to really do with these beads before, I've had them for a few years now, but this is a really cool way to dress up the tin. I'll definitely be doing something like this with them again! TIP: This beaded trim and "candy" stamp could also be used to create a fabulous tin for storing "card candy", as well as jewelry ("eye candy")! :)

I can't wait to show you all the other tins I've cooked up with these stamps!! Gotta spread 'em out, though! ;)
See you tomorrow! (I think I need to do another blog candy soon to celebrate 30,000 hits!! what do you think??)
