Hello everyone. Welcome to the third Bitten by the Bug 2 Monday in May! This week's challenge was once again selected by my design team sister, Julia. Last week Julia had us use a baked item in our projects and this week she once again stayed in the kitchen. The design team was instructed to use a kitchen cut in their projects.
I decided not only to use a kitchen cut - the cute canister on the From My Kitchen cartridge, but I also cut a 3D dispenser box (using George and Basic Shapes) to use IN my kitchen!
I like to use Splenda in my morning coffee, but I hate having either the big Splenda box or a rectangular Splenda container sitting out on my kitchen counter. Somehow I think the counter tops look messy with extra stuff. In an ideal world my counter tops would look like a landing zone - nothing in site! But I do not live in an ideal world so I crafted this cut Splenda dispenser. I confess that I got the idea from the Splenda box itself, which is a flip out front dispenser box.
Using George, I built this three piece dispenser and cut it using Close to My Heart's Dotty for You cardstock - our National Scrapbook Month special. Dotty for You offers 24 sheets (2 each of 12 designs) of fabulous double sided cardstock at the great price of only $5.00 (with a $35.00 CTMH order). Supplies are going fast so if you are interested in this great cardstock DO NOT WAIT.
Using From My Kitchen, I cut the canister in teals to coordinate with my peach cardstock. I used a Made with Love stamp on the front of the canister before adding pop dots to affix the canister to the dispenser box.
The top of the box flips open and Splenda is then loaded inside. I like this cut little dispenser far better on my counter top than the big Splenda box!!
