The Project:


Today's project idea is from Tifany, our DT Coordinator.

This project is quick and easy (& beautiful) thanks to our deeply textured papers!


To start, grab some basic canning jars - you can find these in many stores usually in sets of 12 for under $10.

Pick some lovely patterned papers from one (or more) of our current collections and adhere the lid (without the band) with a strong adhesive to the back side of your patterned paper.

With Authentique Paper you have two beautiful sides to pick from...so you'll need to adhere the lid to the side you won't have showing.
{Tifany is using papers from our Blissful collection.}


When your adhesive is dry, trim the excess patterned paper from your lid. Put it on your jar, screw on the band, and you are finished!
{For these jars, Tifany has added twine from The Twinery and a pearl charm.}

Each finished jar costs less than $1!
As quick and inexpensive as these are they make great gifts for neighbors, family, and more.

If you'd like to decorate the tops of your jars a little more, grab your various Authentique Paper die cuts (Tabloids, Icons, Excerpts, Noteables, etc.) and add them with some dimensional adhesive for a little extra something.
Or if you don't want to add anything to the top, punch a little hole in the corner of your die cut and thread it with twine to tie it to the side of your jar for a quick and easy tag!


You can fill these jars with many different things to make great gifts.
Tifany will be filling these with candy and sending them to a few family members, but these would also be great filled with some easy jar mixes or homemade bath salts.

Cheers to creating gifts from the heart this holiday season!


The Next Stop:
Glue Arts

Supplies:
Patterned Paper: Authentique Paper (Blissful Collection - Happiness, Paradise, Felicity);
Twine: The Twinery (Charcoal, Buttercream);
