Get Well Spoon

   Giving Some Sugar to Your Loved Ones
         This Cold and Flu Season?
   Here's a Spoonful of Sugar to Help
         The Medicine Go Down.

When sniffles and achy bones derail holiday cheer, creating a light heart can make the experience bearable.  This "Get Well" card uses many lovely items from Altered Pages!!
(Here are the ingredients I "cooked" with):
Clear Embossing Powder
Cardstock with Printed Sentiments
Brown paper bag scrap

Resized image, printed on cardstock, adhered to burlap.
(Notice I glued the burlap up over the Merry Christmas sentiment.)
Coated spoon in pigment ink and embossed with clear powder.
(I heated and covered with powder 5 times to make it glossy.)
Glitter to fill the specimen bottle and glued in spoon for sugar.
(A drop of glue in the bottom, fill, and a drop on top to seal.)
Assemble parts and sentiments, adhere into place.
(Isn't this so sweet?!)

Adhere printed sentiment onto paper bag
and into the inside of card.
(Be creative, use your imagination for those you care for.)

Get Well Spoon!


  1. this is adorable! very clever and attractive - I may 'steal' this idea and do something similar when the need arises! thanks for the inspiration!

  2. I know this would cheer me up if I got the flu! I am thinking why not put on a small bag and putting in instant chicken soup and a small pkg of tissues!

  3. I love the tongue in cheek saying and your project is wonderful! Great job!

  4. This is truly a thoughtful gift! Anyone would like to get it and chase away the flu blues ~ To add to Jackie's thoughts, maybe include a tea bag!

  5. Great ideas! Thank you for the feedback everyone.

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
