100 Wins Candy Jar

My son had his 100th high school career win this weekend.  I decided it was too big an event to go by unnoticed, so I made him this:
...filled with exactly 100 pieces of candy.
Everything was cut on the Cricut, and I tied ribbon on the hinges on the back.  Here are the cuts I used:
  • 100 Wins cut using Varsity Letter and the shift feature at 1-1/2 inches.
  • The wrestlers were two borders cuts on Sports Mania at 10 inches wide using black vinyl.
  • The Superman logo was cut at 2-1/2 inches from the Superman cartridge.
  • Congrats was cut at 2-1/2 inches from Gypsy Wanderings.
  • The circle on the top was cut at 2 inches wide from Mini Monograms, so that I could add the date of his 100th win (didn't want to jinx anything in case it didn't happen when expected, so I dated it after I took the photos).
  • I attached everything using Liquid Glass from Close to My Heart because it holds so well and dries quickly.
Of course, with the biggest part of wrestling season upon us - conference, sectionals, districts, and states - I had to take the candy jar back until after the season.  My name would be mud if he ended up not making weight at this point in the season.
