Hello Crafters !
I had a challenge this week to complete something that is a little out of the ordinary for me...an altered bottle or jar. I admit that I tried 3 other methods before deciding on this particular one. I was not happy with the way they turned out....sometimes that is just the way "the cookie crumbles" , or in one case "the way the glass breaks" !! Ha Ha !!
I found a hinged lid, French canning jar that I had stashed away and decided that it needed a genuine French look to it, so I pulled out my "FRENCH COUNTRY" Graphic 45 paper pad and went to work. I first cut a 1" border strip to glue around the center belly of the jar. Then, I fussy cut the Rooster and Sunflowers out, and decoupaged them onto the glass . I also added a small matching sentiment from the collection on the back side. I added a circle to the top of the lid that matches the border design. Lastly, I filled the container with bright Fall flowers and added a forest green ribbon and some bling...
This will be going in the mail tomorrow to a partner in a Cricut Message Board swap. I hope she will enjoy it as much as I did in creating it for her !
