I love nap time!

So while my littlest has been sleeping I've been busy playing with my new stuff! I have been so excited to get this delivery~ I haven't gotten anything new in a long time! I got a couple of new sets~ and Pun Fun is one of them. I just think this little rocket is really cute. Matched with the Jersey shore DSP on this tin... I just really like it. I am sure I could've done a lot more with this but I just wanted to play while the baby was sleeping. (Side note regarding the picture: When I was looking at the photo once it uploaded, I saw all of the dust on my table and actually blew on the picture thinking (or not thinking) it would blow away... such a habit!)

I cut a 3 1/2" circle out of Jersey Shore DSP and attached it to the top of the tin. I then punched a small star (star punch) out of Only Orange cardstock and another out of Brilliant Blue. I lined up the Large star punch over the small star hole and punched for the hollow blue star. I used black staz-on to stamp the rocket from Pun Fun and colored it in with pure color pencils. I cut it out, popped in a green eyelet and used pop up dots to lift it. I glued a few orange glass beads for the flames. I inked up the quote with a brilliant blue marker and stamped it on whisper white cardstock and punched it out with the word window punch. I popped it up, too. The arrow is from the My Way punch. I wrapped the perimeter of the lid with red sticky tape and used 1/4" tangerine ribbon over it.

Hope you enjoyed it! Evan is still asleep so I am going back to play!

What a cute idea using the Trader Joe tins! Now I need to definitely find those. For some reason I thought they were rectangular. I love the round shape better. Your idea with Pun Fun is adorable. It is one of my favorite sets. Thanks for sharing.
