Back to School Treat Jars

Back again with another project using the MIM Glitter Window techique at PTI this week. After seeing the cute treat jars that my buddy Ted made for his coworkers, I wanted to make some for the boys' teachers. We go to "Meet the Teacher Day" at school next week and they will be able to give these to their new teachers then. I haven't gotten the candy yet, so just pretend it's in there. LOL!

And here is a close up of the cards that I made using the Lunchbox Note die, the Apple die and stamp set , and the Glitter Window Technique.

Supplies (all PTI unless noted):
Stamps: Fruit Fusion: Apple, Polkadot Basics, Vintage Picnic
Ink: Pure Poppy, Memento Rich Cocoa, Versamark
Paper: Rustic Cream, Pure Poppy, Simply Chartruese, Distressed Dots
Dies: Lunchbox Note, Apple, Limitless Layers 1.75"
Other: Copic Markers, Clear Packing Tape, Prisma Glitter, Pure Poppy Bakers Twine, Tinery Honeydew Twine, Hole Punch

These are great. I'm sure their teachers will love them. They remind me of candied apples.
