I inked up the strawberry and the watermelon for this little project and dug into my scrap pile for a summery assortment.
Quite often when you're making a card, you'll have enough "extras" from cutting down your cardstock that you can make two projects at once.
In this instance, I fiddled around with the leftovers and decided that I had enough to put together a bellyband with this circular panel to cover an acrylic box. Its filled up with Jolly Ranchers - I love that the clear box shows all the candies.
I've been reaching for this red, green and yellow pallette a lot lately. Maybe I've found a new favorite for the summer?
I wish that today was as cheery and sunshiney as this project. Its raining, and small people are crabby. I'm off to entertain them... and maybe sneak a piece of candy when they aren't looking!
