Can of soup?


Anyone care for a can of soup? LOL

This cute chic from FireCracker Designs by Pamela has her recipe book with her so I thought she would look pretty good on some noodle soup - not IN but ON! I cut some patterned paper - yes again from that HUGE stack from Joann's and wrapped it around the can. Garnished some cream and green scraps from my scrap bin and came up with this ...




I used Red Line tape to affix everything since we were working with a NON flat surface. Stamped Miss Chic and my sentiment with my Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then colored Miss Chic in with my Prisma Watercolor pencils and SU Blender Pen. I then edged the sentiment with my Cognac Palette ink pad. The ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon and I added it around at the top and also made a bow out of it which I adhered to the top corner of the sentiment.

The top where you have the pop tab opening was yucky without a cover so I added a punched circle that I also edged with the Palette ink and used pop dots to keep it up so it can be easily removed to make the soup! I did remember to put the directions on the bottom too as well as the kind of soup it is in case it sits for awhile.
