So I got to thinking.... how cute would something like this be, altered, and given as a gift with the reasons why you love that person?! So I came up with this idea.
I thoroughly cleaned the jar (3 times.... to make sure it was really really clean) and then plugged in my glue gun. (My next purchase is so going to be a cordless!). I looked at it, and since I have a 'thing' for the vintage inspired look, I got out my materials. I covered all the way around the frosted jar with paper, and then another piece of paper after trimming the top and bottom. Glued ribbon to the top and then a thinner pink grosgrain ribbon in loops for a little fun. I then added embellishments to the top and a heart on the front. The heart covers the seam. I don't like my work to show. No seams, glue, etc. Even if I have to get creative & touch it up with glitter, I will alot.
I was going to use 1 1/2 inch scalloped circle diecuts to put inside to write on, but they just wouldn't fit. In or out easily, so I went with a simple 1 inch circle. I inked the edges on everything to give it a sweet shabby & vintage appeal.
Maybe you will find something you can reuse around your house?! Sometimes it's the items we least expect :)
