Candy/Sweetie Jar Cards

These cards all measure 5ins x 5 ins and are made using linen effect card.
sweetie giftwrap
As a person with a terrible sweet tooth, I saw this gift wrap in John Lewis and just had to have it … it’s designed by Emma Davis  and cost £1.75,(SHW89).
 Liquorice Allsorts Card
I have cut out individual jars and then laminated them (top tip, if laminating small cut outs keep them in place with a tiny bit of Pritt before putting them through the machine)
liquorice wheel card
I’ve stuck them down with a foam pad to give them extra dimension on a black gingham background, thinking that then they would then be suitable for either sex, because although a lot of men say they don’t eat sweets, you watch them pinch a few from your packet when you have them!!!
 Red Liquorice Twists card
As a final touch I’ve used Ranger Glossy accents on the jar labels again for extra dimension.

OOh I've just seen a new shop in my town that's opening tomorrow called 'Sweet memory lane' - it's laid out like a traditional sweet shop with all the tubs just like your wrapping paper! I was oggling through the windows...
