Pretty Jar

A quickie post today to share a little jar I decorated from the latest challenge at the Scrapbookin' Adventures facebook page. This challenge was to re-cover something. We have about 3 or 4 mugs sitting around the house with change and other bits and pieces in them so I thought this would be a good chance to spring clean that clutter!

Jars are not easy to photograph! I wanted to keep this fairly simple so that it will last a little while! I wrapped the jar with a piece of paper from Fancy Pant's Trendsetter line; punched a circle of paper from the same line for the lid; wrapped the lid in a denim ribbon (to hide the bright red and yellow metal); added a few pieces of washi tape; wrapped some jute around the jar; and then stuck on a couple of wood butterflies.

Scrapbookin' Adventures had this same challenge way back in 2012. I thought I'd share a pic of the card box that I recovered for that one.

I still use this one. It quickly became too small to hold the cards and tags I have made, so it now holds store bought cards (I still have a few of those kicking around).
