Pineapple treat holder

When we moved to our apartment, we decided that it would be a good time to make a new start in some other ways, too.  One thing we did was not order cable TV, and instead just got Netflix so we could watch "the occasional movie."  That was working really well, until my husband went out of town to visit his friend for the weekend last month and I realized that you can stream entire seasons of TV shows on Netflix.  So, a month later I have watched almost the entire series of Psych, which, if you watch Psych, you know that one of the recurring jokes is anything pineapple related.  So, of course, when I bought the Fruity Fiesta svg's from SVG Cuts, I had to make this pineapple container.  I've been wanting to stretch myself anyway, now that I have two cutting machines, from making just cards and layouts to more gifty types of crafts.  All that was a long winded way of explaining why this super awesome, Jolly Rancher filled, pineapple box is now sitting in my dining room.  :)

It was really pretty simple to assemble.  I used my versapen to trace all of the lines on the pineapple for a little more definition, and then I tied a piece of twine around it in a knot.  I made the little tag with circles on my Cameo and cut them on some Recollections paper.  Then I stamped one of my favorite Jaded Blossom stamps from Simple Sayings- "Smile" on it and adhered it to the knot on the twine.  The cut file comes with its own tag that you can hang around it, but I wanted something a little smaller so I made my own.
