I purchased these clear tubes from SRM months and months ago with the best intent to use them...but they just sat on the shelf :) So I decided I wanted to make something small for my childrens teachers and admin school staff so I thought an M&M tube would be perfect! I of course decided to get started on it last night around 9:30pm...needless to say I was up LATE! I tried to make it as simple as possible. Here they are:
I saw a few templates online but I just decided to make my own. I used solid paper for the "holder", then added patterned paper to decorate it. I used patterned paper for the scallop circle and for the little circle to put on the lid as well. I used the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge to cut the scallop at 2.25 inches. I used a creme colored cardstock to print the sentiment on (which I just came up with because I have NO Thanksgiving stamps for some reason). I used a scallop punch I had, I believe it is 2inches, to cut out the sentiment. I replaced Principal with teacher for that one and for the admin assistant I just put So THANKFUL for you. I also hot glued ribbon (I had some ribbon that said so thankful-perfect right and when I ran out of that I had some with leaves on it). If I had more time I probably would have added a turkey or something...maybe next time :)
If anyone is interested in the template I made, let me know and I will post it :) TFL!
