Designer Tip: 1) Press out the white scalloped border die-cut and cut it in half lengthwise. Place it around the bottom inside a mini mason jar, then trim the length to fit. Glue or tape the ends together. Apply Mixed Media Effect Snow to the edges of the scallop and sprinkle with Spoonful of Snow. Let dry. 2) Press out the lime green circle die-cut with white scalloped edge. Foam tape the aqua bird die-cut on it. Cut out “Warm Hearts” heart art and trim the purple border to 1/16”. Foam tape it on the circle, left of the bird. Foam tape the small blue snowflake die-cut to the back of the scalloped circle so it overlaps the snowflake. Add Teal Jewel Dazzles™ as desired. Add Mixed Media Effect Snow to the top edges of the die-cuts and art, then sprinkle with Spoonful of Snow. Let dry. 3) Cut a 1 3/4" white cardstock circle (or use a circle die-cut from the Artful Card Kit) and place 2 pieces of foam tape on the center, with a thin space between them. Foam tape it centered in the bottom of a mini mason jar. Use a palette knife to add Pearlescent Embossing Paste on and around the cardstock, leaving the space between the pieces of foam tape still exposed. Place the border inside the jar at the outer edges. Anchor it in place with more Pearlescent Embossing Paste. Take the circle die-cut with bird and place the bottom edge in the thin space between the 2 pieces of foam tape. Make sure the piece is standing up straight. Add more embossing paste around the die-cuts to look like snow. Sprinkle with Spoonful of Snow. Let dry. 4) Layer 3 snowflake die-cuts together and glue on the lid. Cut out “Winter Cheer” tag and add a loop of teal velvet glitter ribbon to the back. Foam tape a snowflake circle on the top of the tag. Thread teal velvet glitter ribbon through the loop and Zot™ it around the lid. Trim excess ribbon as needed.
