I got to work with the Mason Jar die, and was excited because Mason Jars seem to be a hot trend right now!  In my entryway, I have a set of frames that I like to decorate for the season or holidays.  I thought a Spring themed jar would look pretty in one of the frames that is backed with burlap.



I began by cutting the jar shape from a piece of vellum and the "newsprint" paper from Fancy Pants in the Scrapbook Circle "Bucket List" kit. I put some gold heart between the two layers and then cut a slit in the top  vellum layer to add my flower stems into.  Then I glued around the edges.


My stems I cut with my Silhouette Cameo and used some paper from the Bucket List kit (except for the green paper from my stash).


The die come with the mason jar shape, a lid die, and 2 labels.  I just used the jar and one of the labels because my jar was "open" to hold the flowers. For the label, I used another paper from the Bucket List kit and cut the delicate 'flowers" title on my cameo from dark brown paper.  I did some faux stitching around the edges.  And that's it!



Its time for you to continue hopping to the next person, Diana Waite!
