Little Tubs of Love

Hey there crafty Friends! I got a super cute project for you today...I'm here with Xyron with a partnership between Craftwell to bring you these adorable "Tubs of Love" I've upscaled to look like little frilly canisters.

This is a great way to dress up these little snacks to match any themed party and give out as party favors, or to give to awesome friends or coworkers. Got school age children? Well, sneak one of these, 'Tubs of Love", in their lunchbox and they'll be all smiles for the rest of the day!

Supplies Used
Teresa Collins Pocket Dies by Craftwell
Doily (Lover's Lane), Scalloped Label (Thankful), Love (Memory Collection)
Cherry Limeade Stack (DCWV)
White Cardstock (Bazzill Basics) 
Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks (Ad-Tech)
Fuchsia Stitched Ribbon (Paper Mart)
Spring Green Buttons (Buttons Galore and More)
2Way Glue pen (EK Success)
Martha Stewart Paper Trimmer
Nutella & Go 

To make the top lid for my canister I started off by cutting my doily From the Teresa Collins Lover's Lane Die set from pink and white polkadotted glittered paper from my Cherry Limeade Stack.

To cut wafer thin dies in the Cut'n'boss I used the following sandwich:

From Bottom to Top
D Plate
B Plate
A Plate
A Plate

Then I simply cut my doily in half. This doily is about 5" wide, so I cut it at around 2 1/2".

While I had my trimmer handy, I cut front panels for my canister. Each front measures 4" x 2 5/8". I used a beautiful foiled sheet from the same Cherry Limeade Stack.

Next I cut my labels. I used my scalloped oval label die from the Teresa Collins Thankful set. I cut a total of 3 sets for each canister. And because this machine is a workhorse I can cut multiple layers at a time so I just stacked my material and passed it through. To ensure that it cuts through all the way I make sure to run it through a couple times.

Then I ran through all my cut pieces through my Xyron Creative Station. Love the 9" wide adhesive and platform... I can crank through multiple pieces all at the same time!! And turn my plain paper cut outs into instant stickers! Then I just peel and stick!! This is such a great time saver!!

There's no need to remove any of the labeling off the container...I attached all my pieces right over the existing ones. 

I attached the half doily by lining up the flat end of the cup with the cut edge of the doily. Then I gently the end of the curved the scalloped edge over cup.

The I peeled and adhered the rest of my panels. When attaching chipboard to curved surfaces... it helps to bow/flex your piece and train it to curve. Do not fold, it will give your chipboard an unsightly crease that looks pronounced even if covered with paper.                       

Next I used this pretty Love Script from the Teresa Collins Memory Collection and cut it from lime green and white polkadot paper, again from the Cherry Limeade Stack. Then I simply used my glue pen to attached to the label.

As a final touch, I hot glued a basic bow made from stitch grosgrain ribbon and lime onto the top of my doily. I also attached a lime green button to the bow's center by hot gluing it into place.

Here is my finished canisters...

How flipping cute are these??!!

OMG... there are almost too pretty to eat! 
I said Almost!
Let's face it, it's chocolate, and there is no way chocolate is gonna be left uneaten!! LOL

I hope you enjoyed today's project!!

Until next time...
