Looking Into The Past- Popcorn Wall Hanging

Hi Everyone,

Talk about a "Blast from the Past" this project is just that! Have you ever thought about making a wall hanging from a Jiffy Popcorn container? Well, I did and yep this project is made from a Jiffy Popcorn container!

I have said in the past, that when I first started on my journey as a professional designer in the craft industry that the first few projects I ever had published where in Aleene's Craft Club. This is one of those projects.

It's a very simple project to create and you can use it as a wall hanging, but it would also be very cute to give as a gift. The only problem with that is the person you are giving the gift to may not want to take it apart to cook the popcorn!

As I said, it's very easy to make. All you need to do is remove the popcorn cover, trace it onto some cardstock and pattern paper. Then stamp something on the front, layer it with the pattern paper, adhere some pretty trim around the edge, add a bow and a saying for the top and that's it! You're done!

If you want to give the project as a gift, try doing this; Plan a movie night with some friends and instead of making just one, make two. The first one can be taken a part and used to cook the popcorn and the second one can be saved as a wall hanging. When you're creating the second one, leave a place on the front of you design for a picture. In a gift basket place both popcorn containers, a DVD, some popcorn bags, a bottle of wine, some wine glasses and a dessert. Take a picture of you and your friends on the movie night, print it out at your friends house (everyone has a printer now days!) and place it on the wall hanging. What a great way to capture the evening for many years to come!!!

Thank you for joining me. Until next time...
