I decided to give my girlfriends some of the paper flowers I made a couple of weeks ago and some homemade fabric flowers a la Prima. I bought some jars at Hobby Lobby to put them all the flowers in and did a little decorating to spruce them up. Here's what I did to the jars...
I bought some Creative Cards on PeachyCheap.com a few weeks ago and thought they would great toppers for my jars. I cut the cards into circles and distressed the edges with brown distress ink.
Since the lids of my jars are a bright silver color, I dulled the edges that would not be covered with paper by putting distress ink on it with a sponge dauber. You should be able to just make it out in the photo above.
I glued the paper on to the lid of the jar and dressed it up with some Stickles.
I glued some ribbon around the edge of the jar and added some rub-on monograms to each side of the jar. To the front side of the jar I also added a 3-D sticker of a butterfly and added stickles to the monogram.
Other sides of the jar...
Time to fill the jars! I added the paper flowers and fabric flowers.
I also added some of my custom die cuts like the ones in my Etsy store.
And here are all 4 of the jars complete and ready to be wrapped!
