MFT Camp Create Day 3: Spectacular Shakers – Sweet Candy Jar Cards

Hello and welcome back to see my cards for day 3 of My Favorite Things Camp Create: Spectacular Shakers:

For a long time I’ve been wanting to do these candy jar shakers, so I made a batch of them. I got the lid slightly lopsided, which made me giggle as it reminded me of the candy jar my aunt always put in my room when I stayed with her. Mom’s rule was not go meddling, so I never peeked in the dresser drawers or anything. But I knew that candy jar was there for me, so I’d sneak a piece now and then and sometimes, to be quiet, the lid didn’t always get back on straight. : )

As you can tell from this pic, I didn’t get the ‘crystal’ filling all the way to the back of the card and the pieces can get up in there and, since it’s tight, they can get stuck. I should have thought to put adhesive over the dried ‘crystal’ filling. Next time…

I also did a couple with jelly beans. You can see I had the same trouble, this time with the bottom, too, so it doesn’t look nearly as full as many went down into the bottom. sigh. Live and learn!

I like how those embossed lines add texture and make a ‘table’ for the jar and candies.

Here’s a behind-the-scenes look at how they went together…

I intend to get some real mints and jelly beans to go with these cards for a fun gift!
