Mr & Mrs

 
Hi

I've got a couple of altered jars to show you today.  I've made these for my boys to take to there school Christmas Fayre for the Jar Tombola.  They also make fabulous gifts for friends.


I started with two empty coffee jars.  I found some lovely vellum with sparkle snowflakes in my stash, there was enough to make two wraps to go around the jars.  I used one of the super Snowmen from Magnolia and coloured them with my Copic Markers.  I used some Glamour Dust Glitter to give the snowflake some sparkle.  I then embellished the jars with some matching seambinding and a snowflake charm which I attached with Baker's Twine.  I filled the jars with mint imperials - they look like snowballs!!!

Here's a close up of the snowmen.

For the lids I die cut and layered some snowflakes.


I'm entering these jars into the following challenges: 

Party Time Tuesdays - "Snow" us what you've got
Lothian Crafts - Christmas
7 Kids College Fund - Non Traditional Christmas Colours
4 Craft Chicks - Snowflakes


Thanks for stopping by today.  Hope you like these jars. 

Hugs
