It's 3-D Friday!

Happy 3-D Friday everyone,

Today I'm using Decor Elements to create a cute canister for dog treats! Why have that icky old box sitting around when you can cute up a glass container instead?

I got the container in the housewares section of WalMart but I'm sure you can find them anywhere. I used a simple Decor Element flower design in Chocolate Chip and a 1/2 felt ribbon in the same color SU sold in their Holiday Mini catalog. Any ribbon will do!

This container is a small canning jar with etched design. I stamped the dog from the D is for Dog stamp set and punched it out with the Wide Oval punch which fit perfectly in the smooth area of the jar meant for labels. I wrapped black 1/4 inch grosgrain ribbon around the lid with sticky strip to make it more durable.

The top is a hounds tooth print DSP from the paper pack Night and Day. I cut it with the Circle Scissor Plus and used sticky strip to adhere it to the jar top. I stamped with doggy paw prints from the same stamp set, D is for Dog and that's it!
Have a great weekend! The Blue Angels are in town here so we'll probably watch that. There are too many things to choose from in the summer and I'm not getting my stamping time in!

Remember to contact me for catalog pre-order. I got my demo copy yesterday and it's amazing! I think you're going to love it. It's 16 pages bigger than last year so there is plenty to choose from. All of the punches are being converted to the new sleeker style and all the new colors are featured in a brand new exciting way!

Talk to you tomorrow for Scrappin' Saturday!
Much love and joy ... and stampin'!



  1. What an awesome idea for dog treats! Much nicer than the packets they come in. Thanks for the idea :)

  2. Karen,

    these are all so adorable! I need to get some of the decor element labels.

  3. What a super cute idea for a gift to my dog sitter - I am always looking to leave them something extra when they look after the pooch for me so this will be a great idea! TFS!!!

  4. Great Idea.. I will have to show this to my mom.. She is in the Pet Product business these days.. and she needs ideas to package bones.

  5. I got sick of the dog treat box sitting on the microwave and had already put the decor element on the jar. I set it on the microwave when I was cleaning my stamp cupboard ... and the rest is history! Serendipity is so much fun!
