Treat Jar

Final - Signed

Decorated Treat Jar!

Summer is here, the treats are being made, and jar are being used. So instead of throwing the jars in the trash, reuse them into gift packaging! This was a 15 minute project, and the recipient will (hopefully) keep it forever, or even pass it on! 

This jar is a fairly large jar, a Claussen pickle jar to be exact - love them things. Since the pickles have such a strong flavor, this jar took two times in the dishwasher to get all of the pickle smell out. Not a big deal. 


So the first thing you do after its super wash down, is remove the jar's label. I then I used my good old Scalloped Oval Frame die, I die cut JUST the oval part out of the acrylic sheet,  to create the main piece to this project. I then inked the oval with stream alcohol ink, and embossed it with my Stampin' Up Honey Comb folder.

While I let the ink dry completely, I used the scalloped border, and inked it with lettuce alcohol ink. Then I fed my sheer white ribbon through the holes while wrapping it around the jar.

Now, while both of these items with the inks are resting (to not push the stickiness of the ink) I played with on of the pretty butterflies. I ended up covering it with sivler sharpie, and silver glitter. Then I placed little silver gems up the center!

After all of the glitter was cleared from my desk (hahaha...) I then used two of the super adorable banners and inked them with alcohol ink as well. 


Then --- you stick the whole thing together!! This is all how you want! I adhered mine with hot glue, I don't have patience for anything else. Have fun with it! <3
