....more altered jars

I enjoyed making the altered Mason jar so much that I made a few more. Here are some pics of the 3 little ones I made earlier today. They are made with the tall baby food jars. I don't have a baby anymore..she's 3 1/2 but I have learned that sneaking a jar of sweet potatoes into her spaghetti sauce goes quite unnoticed...sly aren't I!? This way, she's getting some precious extra veggies tucked lovingly into her dinners....a Mom's gotta do what a Mom's gotta do! So, here are today's creations.

Altered Jar, featuring American Crafts


This is a Mason jar that had spaghetti sauce in it. I don't need any more Mason jars so I decided to stick a few pretty things to it and keep it for my craft room. The papers are by Amercian Crafts including the cut out flowers. I added Making Memories pebble epoxy stickers to the centre and Kaiser pearls. The bright and cheery American Craft paper is just perfect for this fun project because the paper is double sided. The pink side of the paper makes the jar look lit up...all pretty in pink. To ensure the paper stuck to the jar I used lots of glue dots.
