Altered Candy Jar

I recently posted a little tutorial on the Your Scrapbook Stash blog on how to create a 3 dimensional embellishment. I've reproduced the tutorial here.

I love dimension on my projects and a simple way to achieve this is by using accordion flowers. Make them out of a strip of patterned paper, layer other embellishments on top and you're ready to go.

Here's the 3D embellishment I made using Webster's Papers Waiting for Santa patterned papers:

To make the accordion flower, cut a strip of patterned paper measuring 12x2 inches. Punch a decorative border along one side.


Accordion fold the strip.

Glue the ends together, flatten it and attach the accordion flower to a circular piece of cardstock.

Gather up different elements you want to add to your embellishment. Here's what I used:

Layer the different elements on top of the accordion flower.

And that's it. Here's my completed 3D embellishment on my altered candy jar that's all ready for Christmas candy. :)
