Thanks so much ~ Candy jar

Looking for something to do with those canning jars you have been saving…and saving…and saving?  Why not put together a quick and easy little gift for someone?  I love decorating jars…there are sooooo many different ways to decorate them and you can fill them with your favorite goodies!  

For this particular jar, I decided to make a few thank you gifts.  I have a bunch of retired Stampin’ Up! fabric that I wanted to use up…the fabric is a great little embellishment for the mouth of the jar.  Simply tear some strips of the fabric and tie it around the jar. I also added a bit of crochet trim and a vintage rose!  Love those vintage roses (I wish Stampin’ Up! would bring them back). 🙂

Did you notice the top of the jar?  I cut a piece of the quatrefancy designer paper using the 2 1/2 inch circle punch.  This particular paper is like a decorated piece of transparency paper with a white mosaic type of design!  Fit perfect in the lid of the jar!
 
For the body of the jar, I decided to cut out a piece of designer paper with one of the apothecary accent framelits.  Of course I had to use the Oh Hello stamp set…again! 🙂  Love that set!  The little elegant butterfly was actually stamped on some retired paper…you get a great little effect when you stamp over the top of designer paper!  Oh…and don’t forget to add the little paper doily!  Now you are ready to fill your jar with a bunch of goodies!
