Summer is party season and I love to entertain! These Faux Quilted Party Containers will brighten up any Pool Party or Bunco Night with the Girls AND they are quick and easy to make from recycled deli containers!
Here’s what you Need:
- Ann Butler Crafter’s® Ink by Clearsnap – Limelight, Aquamarine and Berry
- Colorbox® Background Basics Stamps by Ann Butler – Checks, Diamond, Basket and Picnic
- Tissue Paper – Fuchsia, Turquoise and Lime Green; Plastic Recycled Deli Containers (3); Decoupage Medium; Paint Brush; Scissors.
Here’s how to make it:
1.) Thoroughly wash and dry deli containers. Randomly stamp Ann Butler Background Basics Stamps on tissue paper with coordinating Ann Butler Crafters® Ink. Let dry completely.
2.) Paint decoupage medium on stamped surface of tissue paper, then wrap around outside of recycled plastic container. Smooth out tissue paper with your fingers as you go. Miter the corners of the tissue paper, then overlap the corners to create a finished look. Let dry completely.
4.) Fill with your favorite “dry” party foods, serve and ENJOY!
NOTE: Since these containers cannot be submerged in water to be washed, use “dry” party foods such as nuts and hard shell candies. Wipe inside of containers clean with a damp paper towel.
GIFT IDEA: Thoroughly wash and dry the lid as well and decorate in the same fashion. Fill with your favorite candy or baked goods and give as a gift to a special friend or someone who just needs a smile!
