Hello friends! I'm back after a little break and happy to be sharing a gift idea with you today! Ready to see some more of these mason jars?
These are some 6 oz. Ball canning jars that I filled with a few tea bags and some paper curls.
And were embellished using the Label Love stamp set, Deco Label punch, Gold Sequin Trim, and the Pom Pom Trim.
That is Brooklyn's hand in this photo -- she helped me put the jars together and to stage the photos.
Brooklyn really wanted to include our "garden girl" in the pictures. Thank you again, Miss Sue for this -- we love it. Unfortunately, there is way too much glare on the jars in this shot.
These jars were so quick and easy to make! And when I say quick, I mean 30 minutes from start to finish for the 4 jars I made...yes, 30 minutes! Could you travel to a gift store and purchase 4 gifts in that time? I know it would be a challenge for me to do so!
Some of my fellow Stampin' Pretty Pals were the recipients of the jars -- Michelle Quinno and Martie Pollard -- and another went to Martie's friend Holly. I got to see them over the weekend and although I only got to see them for a very short time, it was so nice to do so!
- Paper curls can be made in minutes -- cut narrow strips of Designer Series Paper (1/4" to 1/2" wide by 6" long) and use a bone folder to curl. If not as curly as you'd like, quickly twist around your pinkie finger.
- When embellishing the jar, double up some Baker's Twine and tie it around the base of the lid (there is a little lip of glass that will hold it in place). Next, grab your sequin and Pom Pom trim and use the excess Baker's Twine to knot on the trim so it will fall loosely.
Again, these are so quick and easy...give them a try!
Enjoy a little creativity today!
P.S. About that little break...Last week was school vacation week in New Hampshire and we took the girls on a trip. We went to the Great Wolf Lodge in the Poconos and we stopped in New York City on the way. It was lots of fun! I did pack a couple Paper Pumpkin kits to work on while we were away but we never sat long enough in our hotel to work on them at all!
