Welcome to my first 3D Free Project Thursday. I'm so excited to be a part of this team.
For my project using the Mini Jam Jars, I made a cute treat perfect for holiday gift giving.
To make my holder I needed a couple things from the outside. Let's get that done first. For the Hot Chocolate, I ordered from Amazon Ghirardelli Double Chocolate Hot Cocoa Mix, 0.85-Ounce Packets (Pack of 10). For the spoons, also from Amazon, Perfect Stix - Green Spoon 110-100 Green Spoon 110 Birchwood Compostable Cutlery Taster Spoon with Concave, 4-1/2" Length (Pack of 100). The wooden spoons came in a pack of 100. The are 4 1/4 inches tall. They cost $11.09.
For the chocolate holder the Early Espresso card stock measures 5 7/8 x 5 7/8. Score at 1 1/4, 1 1/2, 3 7/8, 4 1/8. I darkened the lines so you can see them. Add a piece of Tear and Tape to the back and close.
You'll need 2 pieces of designer paper measuring 2 1/4 x 5 3/4. I used the Painted Christmas DSP. Add to each side. You can lean the rectangle to one side to get a flat surface.
Use the Playful Alphabet dies and the Love You More Than dies to cut the words. I used Adhesive Sheets on the back of the espresso paper so my words turned into stickers.
I folded the chocolate packet to fit into the holder.
Use the Christmas Season bundle to add some holly to decorate. I used Evening Evergreen and Real Red pads.
Now we'll tackle the bottom box.
The measurements are 3 7/8 x 10. Score at 2 3/8, 4 3/4, 7 1/8, and 9 1/2. Turn the card stock and score at 1 1/2. For this box the bottom is the larger pieces. Trim up to the score line and trim away the little side piece.
Add designer paper measuring 1 3/8 x 2 1/4. You'll need 4.
Add a piece of Tear and Tape at the end. On the back add more Tear and Tape.
Adhere box. Adhere the side first. Flip up the panel with no tape first for the bottom.
Use more Tear and Tape to attach the back of the chocolate holder inside the back of the box. It should fit perfectly.
I added a few ingredients that make make the hot chocolate just a little better to the box, mini marshmallows, chocolate morsels, and some crushed peppermint. My peppermint did not crush very well. I think it's just too humid here in NC. Later I thought that I should have put them in the freezor first.
For the lid I used the Peaceful Prints Designer Series Paper from Sale-a-Bration. I used the largest scalloped circle from the Layering Circles dies. Center the paper and press down around the lid to get the shape. Now add Tear and Tape to the side of the lid. Center the paper again and press down.
Use the Christmas Season bundle to decorate. I added Crumb Cake and Early Espresso pads. Add the jar to the box.
For the spoon, I ended up slanting it across the back. Use a 18 inch length of the Metallic Mesh Ribbon. Pull one end of the mesh over the spoon and then around to the back. Do the same with the other end. Bring the ribbon around the spoon and tie into a bow.
Here's one more view.
There you go. I hope you've enjoyed this little tutorial. Please continue on the 3D Thursday. You'll see great uses for the Mini Jam Jars! Next up is Sherry Everett Bishop. You'll love her project!
As a reward for a $50 purchase I will email you a compilation of around 20 tutorials by different demonstrators around the US. You'll see lots of stamp sets and bundles featured with lots of styles from these demos. These will be emailed after the 20th of the month. These are quality tutorials from well known demonstrators!
