Whimsical Mushroom Jar Hut

Hi everyone! Today Eileen Hull's and Stampendous's design teams have teamed up to do Along the Garden Path blog hop! My project is a combination of Eileen Hull's Make it 3D and Button Jars and Labels dies and Stampendous's Mushroom Home stamps and Dies. I thought the shorter jar looked like a mushroom stem and would be perfect since I could cut it from matboard.


I started by cutting two of the jars and one of the make it 3D boxes from Matboard, four jars and one of the make it 3D boxes from patterned cardstock. The mushroom top I used the Stampendous's die and cut four tops from patterned cardstock.


I inked the jars with a tan chalk ink and adhered the patterned cardstock to all of the mat board pieces. I measured a half of an inch up from the bottom on the backside of each jar and made pencil marks. 


I adhered each jar piece to the make it 3D box.


I sandwiched the top of the jars between two of the mushroom top dies and adhered together.


I stamped the circles, door and window on varies pieces of patterned cardstock.


 I fussy cut and adhered the individual pieces together and then added to the mushroom.


I added sequins to the mushroom top, a cord bow, paper flowers and Dew Drops to finish it off. 


Now its ready to store my pencils. :-) If you have any questions about this project please let me know.


Also be sure to check back each day to see what each team member creates from Eileen Hull and Stampendous design teams!


Thanks for stopping by, hope your day is awesome and enjoy creating!
