I'd like to first say...i really enjoy
stalking checking out some blogs. They're really starting to inspire me to get more crafty. I like this side of me (the crafter). I love working with my hands, and i love getting compliments on my work...although...i really don't think this project was one of my BEST things...it's definitely a start. It started those creative juices flowing...and now...i can't wait to do something else. Next on my to do list: the JUNK DRAWER!!
Honestly... for this project...i got these inexpensive glass jars at a store in my town called Amazing Savings. It's a cute little store with a bunch of awesome things...and everything is really cheap! I got these glass jars for $1.49 each!!! I couldn't pass them up...so i got 6 of them (i only used 4 of the 6...but i know the other 2 will come in handy!) and i knew exactly what i was going to do with them!! I like glass...because i feel like odor doesn't stick to them...so i can re-use for something else...when i run out of what is in it.
I cleaned the jars and dried with a paper towel...then i filled them with whatever i had (rice/brown rice/flour etc). Then i took some card stock (that i had leftover from my sister in laws bridal shower)...used a glass to make a circle, cut it out...and used my label maker to make labels. Next...i popped holes in them and tied a ribbon around the neck...and..DONE!
It was soooooo super easy to do!! I really love them. I want to get scooper's for them ...so that it's easier to remove it's contents...but we will most likely get to that one day.
I really like the vinyl ones everyone is making, but i don't have the cricut..so i had to improvise.
Hope you like!
