Rice Bowl & Chopsticks

Ya like this one???.....more use of uncooked rice!!! I love the matching chopstick holder. This card is in my favorite colors!!! A simple card to make and fun to assemble. Finished card size: 4-1/2" x 5-1/2.

Closer view of the card front:

See the linen thread used to hold the small 'friends" tag?

Here the uncooked rice sitting on top of crystal effects:

To make this card:
(1)5-1/2" x 8-1/2" Real Red CS, score on 8-1/2" side @ 4-1/4"
(1) 4-1/4" x 3" Gold CS
(1) 4" x 2-3/4" Black CS
(1) Real Red CS Wide Oval
(1) Real Red CS Word Window
(1) Real Red CS 2" x 1-1/4"
(2) Round Toothpicks
small amount of uncooked Rice.

Use Ticket Corner Punch on all corners of the Black CS and Gold CS layer. Adhere Black CS to Gold, then pop with dimensionals on to card front.
To make rice bowl, use scissors to cut shape. Trim bowl bottom to finish about 1" in length.

After Stamping the Bowl and chopstick holder, apply dimensionals to the bowl. Fold chopstick holder in half and expose one corner as shown. Apply sticky tape to the chopstick holder. Trim the toothpicks to fit the holder.

Use a layer of Crystal Effects to adhere the uncooked rice:

To make the small tag: Stamp "friends", then use 1/16" circle Punch, then punch out tag with the Medium Jewelry Tag Punch from the Occasions Mini. Thread through chopstick and tie a small bow.
