Altered Jar

Good morning. I really hope you are all staying warm and cozy.  Today I have an altered jar to share with you and I hope you see how easy it can be to make a quick gift container.  If you look closely, you can see a little tiny bit of the brand new Red Ribbon Candy ribbon.  It is absolutely beautiful!  Even the pictures can't prepare you for the stunning beauty of this bundle.


Supplies:
Jar
Red Ribbon Candy crinkle ribbon
My Mind's Eye "The Sweetest Thing" enamel dots
Studio G flowers
Folk Art pink chiffon pearl paint
Gesso
Lace - Really Reasonable Ribbon
Victorian Velvet Distress Ink
Hot Glue
Muslin
Pink tulle (Inside the lid)

I started by finding a tiny jar at my craft store.  I then searched my Pinterest boards to find those posts that I saw last spring and summer on coloring jars.  I settled on the one found here and cut the recipe in half since I was using such a tiny jar.  Once the clear jar was turned to pink, I was ready to grab some items from my stash, my glue gun, and some paint and go to work.  You might be surprised to find how much you can fit into those little jars.  I packed this one pretty full.  There's even a surprise on the bottom of the lid that you can only see by viewing the video (because I forgot to take a picture).



This little beauty was designed for someone who likes pink, but can you imagine how adorable it would be in Christmas colors?  Speaking of Christmas, are you ready to hop along with the design team and guest designers tomorrow?  We have a special 3 Girl JAM Holiday Blog Hop and I can't wait to see all the projects that will feature the brand new items in the 3 Girl JAM store.  There's going to be some pretty great candy up for grabs too.  See you soon.
