Diggin’ in the Trash


I love to decorate things. Pretty much anything. So, I got some little cherry tomatoes and really liked the plastic container for some reason. It is really just a plain old container that you get berries or tomatoes in. But, let’s look beyond the obvious. What could it be? Check out this cool project!

I used a piece of Notebook designer paper to wrap around the container and centred some kraft, soft sky and vanilla cardstock on the top. I used my tag corner punch on the corners and voila, it fit perfectly!

I stamped the old car from Thoughts of Father and coloured it in very lightly. Now, what is inside?

I used some of the great scalloped love notes and stamped the watering can image from Thoughts of Father in Chocolate Chip. I tied around the bunch with some Chocolate Chip Poly Twill (love this!) and added a little bit of filler in the bottom.

This is a fun gift for anyone!

  3. Ohohoh! Love! Absolutely a great idea and a very cool way to give the gardener-type dad a gift of bulbs or seedlings and still let them “breathe”. Very very fun – TFS!
