Guest crafter Jann Fujimoto uses washi from The Rare Orchid to add a flair to favors and homemade goodies.

For the owl containers, Jann used the Fiskars Fuse Creativity System to die cut three treat boxes.  The two boxes filled with cellophone treats are made with Design Set 0214. The dark green box filled with lollipops uses Design Set 0215.  Stampin' Up! punches were used to make the eyes and the wings.

 

The vibrant colors of the washi paper wings against the solid papers from Stampin' Up! allow these owls to soar.

 

In addition to creating the treat boxes, Jann incorporated The Rare Orchid's chiyogami to make the homemade canned goods look as good as they taste.  Each year, she preserves a bit of Wisconsin summer to share with family and friends.  A simple addition of a washi strip around the jar, a washi circle to the lid, and Stampin Up! punches to label the jar make these yummy treats ready for gift giving. 

She's included the three recipes, which she considers part of her "must can" list: Spiced blueberry jam (from Food Network), Annie's salsa (Gardenweb.com) and Chocolate raspberry sauce (Freshpreserving.com).

About Jann:

Jann started her own speech therapy practice last year and looks forward to the down time that crafting provides.  She considers herself a "Jann of many crafts, master of none," because she dabbles in quilting, sewing, scrapbooking, and card making. 

Thanks Jann for sharing using washi from The Rare Orchid in your craft room and your kitchen!
