FM136 & PP172 A Nutty Thanks!

Back today with a project created for Friday Mashup and Paper Players.  First up is the challenge at Friday Mashup of using the colors of baked brown sugar, always artichoke and crushed curry with a 3-D item.  I couldn't end it there, I had to join it with Paper Players and add leaves!

So now here is my nutty creation!  I say "nutty" cause its a decorated recycled jar filled with "NUTS"!
Yep, I have become quite the hoarder of glass jars, boxes of all sorts and well yes, TP rolls!!
This jar was the frappuccino bottle that comes in a 4 pack.  It was the perfect size to fill with candy or in my case, nuts, to give as a small gift!

Project Ingredients:
cardstock - baked brown sugar, crushed curry and very vanilla
DSP -        sweater weather
Misc. -       burlap ribbon (Gosh I love this stuff!), lattice and woodgrain folder, regals candy dots, autumn                       accents bigz die and yes I did it, i'm a bad girl...I used a piece of retired always artichoke seam                     binding ribbon to tie it all together (literally!)

Your project is fantastic! I have also been very good at hording items but not good at using them in my projects. Thank you for the inspiration and for joining us at the Friday Mashup!

What a cool project! My daughter drinks the frappuccino drinks like that, I'll have to start saving her bottles!

Love the embossing, the leaves, the burlap, the ribbon...it all looks fantastic!

Thanks so much for playing along with us at The Friday Mashup!

What an adorable project, Cynthia! I love how you embossed just the top of the acorn and love all the ribbon detail. A great repurposed project! Thank you for joining us at The Paper Players!

Great way to go "green" and recycle that jar....you have decorated it so nicely, it will still be a great gift after the insides have been eaten all up! TFS! Thanks for playing with the Players this week!

Love the recycled jar full of nuts and the leaves are the perfect way to dress up the jar. So glad you shared this fabulous project with the Paper Players this week
