Jar Art

I had the girls over the other day
for a card party.

In my preparations,
I was looking for some
silly little gifts
to be awarded.

I found myself at the local
discount store when
I spotted this bright,
cheery jar sitting on the shelf.
Hanging below was this kit:
The kit is made by Ball
and calls for a Ball Canning Jar.
I had several collecting dust at home
so I thought I'd give it a try.

Everything except the jar
was included in the kit...
Cuts outs, ribbon,buttons, tag,
glue dots and dimensional dots.

I had to substitute a Kerr jar
for the Ball jar,
but in less than 15 minutes,
this is what I had:
I filled it with
pastel washcloths and
a few scented candles.
I thought it was a cute,
inexpensive gift idea
that others might enjoy trying.

For the paper crafter,
you could easily create one
without the kit.


Irish Toast:
May the sound of happy music,
and the lilt of Irish laughter,
fill your heart with gladness,
that stays forever after.

Thanks!
Karen: The discount store in St. Francis (right by St. Francis Foods) is where I got it. They have several different styles. It was so hard to choose!
