Salt Shaker Picture Holder

Oh My! Tuesday ALREADY! Wow! How time flies! This is such a busy week! We had cheerleading sign ups tonight for the youth football cheerleading! As much as I love Spring and Summer and dread the winter I love Fall football and cheerleading! I will be coaching the 5th and 6th grade cheerleaders next year! I am really looking forward to it belive it or not! Anywho....On to the stamping right? This project was inspired by my upline, Jan Wakeland, she has such awesome ideas! As soon as I seen hers I knew it would be perfect for a birthday present for my daughters friend! I ran out to the local Family Dollar and purchased some salt and pepper shakers. Jan's was much simpler than mine but I love how it turn out...this was one of the projects I pictured one way and came out another! Let me first share the pictures with you and then give you some details...

Is this not the CUTEST(Click on the pic for a better view)! Here is a funny story maybe you can relate to!
I started to make this last Friday night when my friend Melissa came over to stamp. I was making it for my daughters friends Birthday which was the next day. I thought I had everything I needed to make this project but found that the wire I had was to flimsy to hold anything. I need floral wire to make it work so the nearest place to get that was about 30 minutes away so it would have to wait til Saturday. So Saturday was super busy, my son had soccer so I had to send Taylor (my oldest) with a friend to even make it to the Birthday party. After soccer, I raced to the local craft store and purchased some floral wire. I had to finish this project in the car!!!!!!!!!!! I brought my wire tool from the crafters tool kit to cut the wire with and wrapped the ends around a marker top(was all I could find that was round and the right was perfect!) and inserted in the top of the salt shaker. Put it in the gift bag I brought and attached some $ on one of the flowers and stuffed the top with some tissue paper to cover the gift.....then raced to the movie theatre where the birthday party was taking place...... Shew...made it in time! I even had time to spare before the girls got out of the movie! Then it dawned on me......I wouldn't have a picture to share with you! so I whipped it back out of the bag and sat it on the table in front of the gift bag and started taking pictures! The staff at the theatre must have thought I had lost my marbles! What was the wacky lady doing taking pictures of that at the theatre! LOL If they only knew......... Now you know your not alone (I know I can't be the only one..right???? Please tell me I am not...)...
Stampin Supplies:
I wrapped the shaker with a strip of Tea Party DSP then took my sticky strip and ran it around the bottom of my Tea Party DSP and covered it in Fine Cosmo Orchid glitter. Then Cut out a B and 3 flowers with my Big Shot for the stems (used the Go Go Boots alphabet and Cherry Blossom Embosslit Dies). I also added a 5/16 Jumbo brad in each of the middle of the flowers too! Love these new brads (you can get a sample of them in the Embelishment Sampler). I used some jumbo celery grosgrain ribbon around the top to hide the shaker part better. The Stems are sliver floral wire and I looped the ends around a couple times tight in order to make a place to slip a picture in to hold. I hid this part with the Cherry Blossom flowers that I attached to that part with Mini Glue Dots...
Until next time...... Darcie

That is such a cute idea! Thanks for remembering the pictures- it wouldn't have made much sense without them. :)
