Bug jar

It's a miracle- I had time to get in my craft room today!  After a near catastrophe when my Silhouette initially wouldn't connect to my computer, I was able to make this cute little jar with a firefly from SVG Cutting Files.

I put the firefly onto the box with an Action Wobble.  It's my first time using one, and it's super fun.  I might get addicted!

I used a ton of my scraps of patterned paper on this, which is always fun for me.  The jar was really easy to put together, too.  I don't have any candy in the house right now (post-Easter purge and all) but I'm planning to go to the store and buy some mini candies of some sort to go with the saying that I picked from Jaded Blossom's "Picture This" stamp set. I stamped the stamp on a hand-cut banner that matched the paper I picked for his cute face and legs.

I also used some stickles- yellow for his bum and grape crush for his antennas.  I finished it off with three little rhinestones on the bottom.

I'm entering this project into the following challenges:
Jaded Blossom- Anything 3D
Pause, Dream, Enjoy- Bugs
Die Cuttin Divas- Wobble it
SVG Cutting Files- 3, 2, 1 Go!  (I used 3 rhinestones, 2 colors of stickles, and 1 Jaded Blossom stamp)
