Crafty Gift Jar

Posted by Kerenjb, 25 Apr, 2014

Upcycle a simple jar with the Eau de Nil papers to create a holder for twine or mini tools

  1. Cut a wide strip of mint green cardstock & adhere to the jar. Add a thinner strip of Eau de Nil paper.

  2. Using the papers, trim around the diagonal design inside and out, using sharp scissors or a craft knife. Trim out some pink cardstock & weave it through the cut out paper. Adhere onto the green cardstock.

  3. Carefully trim out the rose papers leaving the foliage on. Arrange them around the jar. Punch out some shapes from grey cardstock & some tiny circles from pink & green cardstock.

  4. Add a dashed white line around the top of the pink cardstock strip & small circles in the dots.

  5. Carefully add the craft tape around the edge of the lid & smooth down at equal points. Add a pleated layer on the top of the lid, overlapping it slightly with the layer going around the edge.
