Hi, this is Katie from Crafting with Katie, and I am so excited to be a guest designer on Everyday Cricut this week! Today's project is something I made for my son to take on his camping trip with his grandpa, uncles, and cousins. They always appreciate treats while they are away, so I decorated a canister of Archer Farm's Caramel Corn that I found at Target. Cute AND delicious!
I began by wrapping paper around the canister to cover the original label. Since the circumference of the canister is 13 1/2", a 12" square piece of paper was not big enough. Instead, I covered it in two sections that are each 6 3/4" wide. This worked out fine, because I just covered the seams with some ribbon and buttons. The green pieces are 6" in length, the brown are also 6" (they got smaller when I used my border punch on them), and the striped paper is 5" in length. I adhered all of these to the canister using my ATG gun.
All of my cuts today, except for the circles, are from the Campin' Critters Cricut cartridge. I cut the deer with all of his layers at 4 1/2". Because I knew the cuts would have to curve across the canister, I used thin patterned paper and lighter weight cardstock. I also assembled the cuts directly on the canister, so that they would lay just right.
The wolf is also cut at 4 1/2".
When I measured the diameter of my lid, I found it was 4 3/8", so I used my Gypsy to cut a 4.3" circle from the Art Philsophy Cricut Cartridge out of red cardstock. I then added a 4.2" scalloped circle in brown, and a 3.7" orange circle. The cute hungry bear is cut at 3". I used my glue gun to adhere some ribbon around the lid and then tied some twine on top of that.
Lastly, I made this tag that I could not resist. Isn't it the cutest? It is cut at 4", and I used some heavier weight red cardstock as the base to make it nice and sturdy.
