MFT Release Rewind; lots of sweet treats + a secret family recipe



Welcome back! Just a couple more projects to share with you from the September release from MFT Stamps! There were so many great products, I still had a few ideas that I wanted to share with you!


The sentiment, "hey smartie pants," from Packed With Positivity, caught my eye and I knew I needed to make a clear lunchbox with real Smarties inside!

I dug through my stash and found a small, clear box that allowed me to place the lunchbox on the front, and still show off the candy inside. Electric Red cardstock was cut with Die-namics Lunchbox, along with Black Licorice cardstock for the handle and feet.

Tag was cut from Primitive White cardstock with Die-namics Lunchbox. I stamped the sentiment and stars from Packed with Positivity in several colors of ink. (Be sure and check out the links below my signature for all the details and links directly to the products used.)


The same die worked perfectly to create a set of mini lunchbox notes. Who doesn't love to toss a little bit of love into their kiddo's lunch? I stamped these with Packed With Positivity and added a little glitter on the stars for fun.


And the final treat of the day. This also was on my mind from the moment I saw Die-namics Mason Jar. I thought it would be cute to create a little jar tag to hang from a gift in a jar. There are so many gifts in a jar ideas out there, this set of dies will be perfect for creating tags for all of them!

And a bit of love to my ice cream bowls in the background. I adore them. They are red, my favorite, and the most splendid shape. :)


The jar was cut from Primitive White cardstock and inked with Sno Cone blue. The lid is Steel Blue. I stamped the label shape in Sno Cone ink and the sentiment in the darker, Blu Raspberry ink. The heart is cut from Electric Red cardstock using Die-namics Mason Jar.


The top was created using basic muslin. It was cut with Die-namics Circle STAX Set 1. When die cutting fabric, run it through your machine twice, and on the second pass, turn in 45 degrees. That will help cut the cross fibers contained in the material. After that, I stamped the circle with Gingham Background using Hybrid Wild Cherry ink, made for a surface like this. Its tied to the jar with Hemp Cord.

And now, the secret family recipe, the hot fudge contained in this jar. Who knows, it may not even be a secret, it could be from Betty Crocker, but this recipe has always been a special treat for generations in my family. Its amazing on ice cream, over eclairs, and let's be honest, by the spoonful. Enjoy and share the jar, but I am guessing that person will have to be pretty special!

Swanson Hot Fudge:
1 C. chocolate chips
1/2 C. butter or margarine
Melt.
Add:
2 C. powdered sugar
1 lrg. can evaporated milk
Bring to a boil. Cook for 8 minutes.

All the projects are fun and esp. to be able to see the lucky child's face when they see the lovin' they got via the pretty cards in their lunchbox. Thanks for all you've done throughout the Blog Hop this month.
