Work It Wednesday - Candy Dish
With Valentines coming up I thought I'd show this idea now. That way if it appeals to you, you could actually make it before Valentines day. It would be great on a desk or counter space. You could even wrap it up in some cellophane and give it as a gift.
So, how do you make it? First gather your supplies. You'll need some paper (I used plain red cardstock), some embellishments, ink, ribbon, and some discarded packaging.
1- Remove the plastic bowls from the packaging. If this seems familiar, I've used this packaging before for a different project. See it here.
2- Trace circles onto center of your paper.
3- Carefully cut out your circles
4- Wrap paper around container packaging. Be sure to line up the cut out circles with the circles on the box.
5- Decorate box any way you'd like and add two of the little plastic bowls so they rest inside the circles.
6- Fill with yummy treats.
If you want to take this idea a little further, you could eliminate the candy and turn this into an organizing tool for small items that you use while you scrap. Or keep office supply items like paper clips out in the open on your desk.
So, there you have it. Enjoy!
