Thrifty Thursday - Preserve Me!

Hi Everyone
Sue Here


Today I have purchased a large jar for £1, a chutney jar (cleaned out) and a wooden egg cup for 20 pence and turned them into storage jars for all your crafty bits.  I have used the Moroccan Motifs and accents to decorate the jars.

Firstly I cut strips of cardstock which would go all the way around the jar 5.5cm wide.  I then used
versamark and WOW clear  embossing powder and used the heartfelt creations tattered background stamp with circles on and heat set this.  I then used direct to paper and smudged distress ink in seedless preserves all over the embossing and then with kitchen paper buffed the excess off the stamped area.

I then cut a light pink strip of card for the middle of the card.  I then die cut in different pinks/purple the border, corners and small circle.  I then glued using cosmic shimmer glue a small width pink ribbon to one of the pieces of card along the middle.



With the egg cup I glues a piece of pink ribbon around the middle  and  further ruffle pink ribbon around the bottom.  Inside the egg cup I put 2 x baby wipes inked up in seedless preserves distress ink and left to dry.  I then places some pins in this as a holder 

Hope this has given you some ideas and you have a good sort out in your craft room this week and fill up these jars with all your crafty bits such as ribbons, buttons, scissors etc......
Take care
Sue
