happiness is {jar}

Hi! It's time for challenge 7 at Scrapy Land and it's another Anything Goes challenge. I picked up these fun X-Cut Feathers Dies and wasn't quite sure what I was going to use them for, all I knew is that I wanted them and that I would some way to use them.

These feather dies are a nice size and can easily accommodate a few words or even a sentence, so after some thought I decided to create a Happiness Is jar. The idea is to write a little something on a feather that is positive or about a good moment/event that has happened throughout the year and at the end of the year we can open it and recall all the wonderful things/moments that have occurred.

I created the "nest" using the Impression Obsession Twig Wreath die (can you tell I love this one?!). I cut two, layered and then cut about a 1/4" off to create a bit of roundness and then adhered the ends together. You can easily cut more  off to create a deeper nest.
