Mom love to make homemade dog and cat treats. This weekend she was working on making up some treats for my cousin's dogs. She decided to make "Don't Eat My Shoes" treats. In other words - Treats shaped like Shoes to keep your puppy happy and out of your closet! :)
These treats smelled yummy cooking (not all dog treats smell that great to us humans!). They are made with Molasses's and smell like gingerbread as they bake...
She cut out some regular bone shapes for smaller treats and wanted me to come up with something fun to put them in. I decided to make a Treat Jar. I had some Brown Decor Elements Flowers left over from a club project so I randomly applies them to a Cookie Jar.
I finished the jar off with a little Riding Hood Red Striped Ribbon and a Bone that says treats. Remember the bone template we made at the punch art class with a word window and a couple of hearts? I just used that same template to trace and cut out two bones. Then I sandwiched a piece of Linen Thread in between them and tied it onto the ribbon.
The Flowers add a fun funky feel to the jar. When the Dog Treats are gone my cousin want wash out the jar and use if for "People Treats" (Umm Cookies) if she wants or re-use it for the Dogs!
