Altered Jam Jar

This used to be a Knott's Jam jar! What do you think of it now? I used the Great Friend set from the Occasions Mini for this!

So here is what else I used to create this jar! For the lid I used kraft, baja breeze, and certainly celery card stock. I ran the certainly celery piece through my Sizzix machine with the Cuttlebug embossing folder called Texture (any of SU's new texture plates would work here, I just do not have any yet! :o). I then sponged it and the edges of the baja breeze circle with very vanilla craft ink. I attached the cs with tacky tape so it would stay put. I stamped two butterflies in baja breeze on to whisper white cs and then cut then out. I attached one to the lid of the jar. For the middle of the jar, I added baja breeze striped ribbon using tacky tape again. I stamped the frame in baja breeze classic ink and the saying in kiwi kiss classic ink on to whisper white cs.
I had to use my stamp-a-ma-jig to place the saying just right. I then cut it out and created a larger layer out of kraft cs. I sponged the edges again with very vanilla craft ink. I attached the saying layer with dimensionals and then added the other butterfly! And there you have it! It was a fun one to create!

Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a very creative day!!!
