Made It Myself Monday: Peace O' Candy
These are for Handmade Holidays '09: The Consumables Edition.
(I'm still on track for done by Thanksgiving!!)
The peace sign is 50 years old this year. Did you know?
It is one of my all time favorite symbols.
I had it painted on my punkrock leather jacket when I was just a churlish young grrrrl.
I wanted a cool graphic to restyle these thrifted tins for our baked goods, and fudge. The sentiment goes great with our combined winter holiday sensibilities and the shape lends itself quite nicely as well.
A little paint and a contact paper stencil and Voila. Stylish, politically savvy and eventually to be full of yummy goodness.
So what's so funny bout Peace, Love and tins of candy?
( Yes! a crafty post! FINALLY!!)
