Hi all! Today I have a “just for fun” project I made this weekend. I decided to take a break from the DT work and do something just for fun. And eeek…there was no stamping involved! But I had fun anyway!
I have been wanting to bake some homemade treats for Riley and a friend’s dog, Dixie. No special reason…just because! So this weekend I tackled the project. I really like how it turned out & I hope Dixie’s owners do too!
I found these glass jars at Walmart for $3…a great buy! Then I set off to make the tags.
The tag base and red layer were cut with the Mega Curved Rectangle Nestabilities. The “rug” was cut with the Oval Nestabilities. And the “nameplate” was cut with the Double Ended Tags Nesties, after the names were printed on the computer. The doggies and bones were diecut with the Sizzix Dog and Dog Toys die. I couldn’t resist getting this CUTE die when I saw it at Jo-Ann’s on sale! I knew it would be perfect for this project! I cut and layered different colors of cardstock to resemble what the dogs look like. They aren’t perfect, but close enough. I sponged some distress ink onto various pieces and then glued them all into place.
To finish the tags off, I added some gel pen accents and attached a jumbo eyelet at the top. Then I tied them to the jar with ribbon. I made sure I tied it in a bow so it could be easily removed to wash the jar.
Here’s a close-up of Dixie’s tag:

I really enjoyed this project and I hope you like it too! I will share the recipe for the treats sometime later…they were super easy to make. And they seemed to be a hit with Riley. ;0)
