Hello everyone! Today I want to confess my obsession with mason jars! They are just so versatile! Maybe you love them as much as I do?
I’m so excited that Paper Wishes now has Tim Holtz Mini Mason Jars! They are 3 7/8″ tall, come in a 3 pack and they are so cute! I couldn’t wait to play with them.
I used one jar to make a Memory Jar featuring my parents as young newlyweds. It was a quick project and I love how it turned out! I placed a small black & white photo inside the jar and added some Savannah Stroll Buttons for color.
I covered the top of the jar lid with pink Romantique paper, wrapped some Romantique Ribbons around the lid and tied a bow to the left of center. I used some hot glue to attach a Pink Rosette and leaf to the bow center. Once the lid was secure I placed “Together” from Family & Friends Black Dazzles™ Stickers on the top of the lid.
I used another jar to make a little tea light holder. Because I used a battery operated tea light I was able to keep the lid on, which made it a little different. I tore some black and ivory Romantique paper and used the shadow for the heart shaped die, from 10 Tiny Things + Shadows Cutting Dies, to cut a heart in the center of the torn paper strip. I wrapped a Black Jewel Border Dazzles™ Sticker around the lid to add a touch of sparkle! And the heart cut-out from the front? I glued that to the top of the lid.
I sponged Eggplant onto the lid and after drying for about 1 minute I placed a small Zen Butterfly Dazzles™ Sticker onto the center. Using the corner of a Cosmetic Sponge, I dabbed some Cranberry Alcohol Ink onto the openings on the butterfly wings. This project took about 10 minutes to make, (No kidding!) I can make a set of 3, using different colors of Alcohol Ink, and use them to store this & that in my craft space or use it as a vase!
I used Waffle Flower Crafts Succulent Stamp and Cutting Die Set and the Black StazOn® Ink Pad to stamp and die-cut succulents from both Lavender and Emerald Glimmer papers. I also used purple and green ink pads and stamped succulents on white cardstock. Add some sparkle with a little glitter and sequins from the Mixed Berry Sequin Tin.
