Takeaway Tuesdays on the Made2bCreative Blog

It’s a deep subject!

We are back to Takeaway Tuesdays again!  Sorry for the two missed weeks in a row.

Someone asked me not too long ago whether I had any ideas for a paper craft wishing well as she wanted to make one for a “Come to the Water” women’s ministry theme.

I don’t always take project requests because I already have my brain packed with things I want to try, but I thought it might be fun to pursue this idea.  Here is what I came up with.  I tried to keep it simple.

Wishing Well Papercraft DIY Project

For this project you need just a few supplies.  Cardstock, a few embellishments, plastic shot glasses, and small candies or mints.

I used the plastic shot glasses as a container for the candy.  I got them at The Dollar Tree.  I had been mulling this idea over and when I saw these, they were perfect to place in my wells.

All I had on hand was a jar of pink Sixlets so I used those.  I was thinking small buttermints might be nice for this because you could make the wishing wells look springy and have the pastel buttermints in them.

Wishing Well Shot Glasses for DIY

Here’s an overhead view in the photo below.  I used the Verve Plain Jane Psalm 34:8 stamp for my tag.  I just clipped it on.

I thought ” O taste and see that the LORD is good” was appropriate for a well, since Jesus is the Living Water.

Papercraft DIY Favor

I tried to take a few pictures at different angles so below is a straight forward shot.

Supplies for this project:

  • Cardstock
  • Plastic Shot Glasses
  • Embellishments
  • Your favorite Adhesive.  I used tape runner on the main well piece.  I used red-line sticky strip on the rails to attach the roof and the bottom inside the well just to be sure it wouldn’t fall apart.


   For Well

  • Cut cardstock 6 3/4 x 1 3/4 inches.
  • Score on long side every 3/4 inch.
  • Press out folds at score lines.
  • Put adhesive on one of the end scored sections.  Overlap with other end scored section.  Adhere to form your well.
  • Set aside.

   For Roof

  • Cut cardstock to 3 x 2 inches.
  • Score at 1 1/2 inches in on 3 inch side.
  • Press out fold at score lines.
  • Set aside.

   For Side Rails

  • Cut cardstock 9 1/2 x 1/2 inch.
  • Score at 3 3/4 inch in on each side.
  • Press out and fold at score lines.  This forms a 2 inch section that will fit the bottom of the well.

    To Complete

  • Attach the ends of the rail piece with adhesive to the roof by placing approximately 1/4 in on center sides of roof. (The score line is the middle of your roof.)
  • Place adhesive towards bottom sides of “rails” but not on the 2 inch scored section on bottom.
  • Slide piece into your well.  You have 8 “sections” so use two across from each other to place rails.  Place them to the very bottom of well and press on sides to adhere.  It will fit snugly.
  • Slip in your plastic shot glass and fill with mints or small candies.
  • Embellish your wishing well however desired.

I know it is easier to figure things out better when you keep it in its simple form, so below is a pic of the skeleton of the well.  You can see how the side pieces form a little square after it is scored and folded to place in the bottom.  That will hold your plastic shot glass of mints in place.

Wishing Well DIY Favor Idea

When I was first asked about this idea, I was thinking maybe use those small little terra cotta pots and do something with those to make a biblical time looking well but I just couldn’t figure out how to do it, so I went with cardstock.

I didn’t embellish mine too much.  I always like to keep the Takeaway Tuesdays pretty basic for you.  I don’t like overdoing things that are going to be used as favors that will be thrown away.

You could really doll these up though if you wanted to give it as a little gift.  I was thinking maybe do the roof and sides with a wood embossing folder.  There are so many ways you could perk these up.  Have fun and be creative with the idea!

Hello Creative Friends,

Just a quick note to let you know that there will be no Takeaway Tuesday again this week.  Sorry!  I have a really lame excuse….I just totally forgot about it!!  My kids have been away at FFA State Conference and I guess I wasn’t in my usual routine.  I try to make sure I have Tuesday’s post all done by Saturday….well, I try anyway.

I’ve been working on some maintenance on my main website this weekend while nobody was around to bug me.  Not that my kids bug me too much.  Haha!  They will be home this afternoon and then I guess it is back to running them back and forth to places they need to be.

I do have a ton of things to share for Tuesdays and I even have a few projects done ahead, but I just don’t have time to take photos so I’ll just wait until next week.

In the meantime, if any of you ladies that work with women’s ministry need some last minute planning tips for Mother – Daughter banquets, click the graphic below.

Sharing a card I made a week or so ago.  I love poppies so I love this stamp.  It’s from a retired Stampin’ Up! set, Simply Sketched.  I really never used that set until not too long ago.  It had been sitting on my shelf for quite some time uninked.

Poppy Hand Stamped Card: Stampin Up Simply Sketched - Made 2B Creative Blog

I had colored the image and was looking for some paper to match and found this lovely piece of K&Co. in my stash.  I thought it was perfect paired with it.

I used some distress ink  and cheesecloth to make the background for the image.  I just blotted some distress ink on a piece of vinyl I use for crafting.  Then wadded a small piece of cheesecloth on it and dabbed it around my image, re-inking the cheesecloth as needed.  I liked how it turned out.

Poppy Hand Stamped Card: Stampin Up Simply Sketched - Made 2B Creative BlogI colored my image in with colored pencils, blending with a blending stump.  I used a charcoal pencil on the little black spots on the middle of the flower to get them so dark with pencil.  I then covered them with stickles.  Also I stickled the edges of the flower in spots as well.

Thanks for stopping in to check out my project.  Please leave a comment.  I adore hearing from you!
