We are on Snow Day #2 around here, which means I haven't had much time to myself the last few days. Finally this morning, while the kids were watching a DVD, I had a few minutes to try out my Cricut. I bought all my stuff for my teacher's Valentine's Day gifts the other day, but hadn't had a time to get to it with the kids around. Valentine's Day is Monday and we're still not sure if the kids have school Friday so I knew I better take this few minutes of opportunity and attempt to get it done.
I wanted to do just a simple little jar, filled with chocolate, with my kids' teacher's initials on the jars. Wal-Mart was out of red vinyl so I had to settle for black. I bought "cracker jars" from Wal-Mart, my Hershey's Hugs and Kisses and cut out my vinyl initials. Have I mentioned how excited I am about my Cricut? L.O.V.E. Anyway, I just used the font that came with the Cricut. I can't even remember what it's called. Then I designed a little tag for it. Let me just tell ya, I probably won't be doing that again. SO NOT FUN! From now on, I'm totally taking people up on their cute little printables! Anyway, I printed it out, cut it (not a very good circle, by the way) and attached it with ribbon. Does that make sense? Wanna see?
So, what do ya think? Pretty cute for the first attempt if I do say so myself. Only thing is, I had to spend $6 on enough candy to fill the durn thing. Next time I'll buy the smaller jars. I sure wish I had found the Kisses and Hugs wrapped in red foil. Maybe they only make those at Christmas?
I'm linking up to Amanda's party. Y'all come on over and join the fun!
I'm also linking up with Hooking up with HOH @ House of Hepworths and Frugalicious Friday @ Finding Fabulous.
