For my project, I actually created a Happy New Year jar. I don't really know the official name, but you may have seen them pinned on Pinterest. Basically, it is a jar that you write fun and exciting things that happen in your life throughout the year and put them in a jar. Then on New Year's Eve, you can read them and think back on all of the great things that the year brought you. I wanted to make one for my family to do, and thought this would be a great way to make it look adorable and remind us to actually use it. :)
My Circle Framelits were perfect to cover the lid. Brett bought a bunch of canning jars to can venison but we decided to turn it all into burger this year since we still had a lot of canned meat left over from last year, so those guys made it into my "Save for later crafting purposes" pile as well. :) So much for cleaning out my scrapping area during the holidays. It is starting to fill up again already! lol I used the Adhesive Sheets to glue everything together on my belly band and to the jar. You can't see it at all through the jar and it holds really well, especially to the Silver Glimmer Paper which is sometimes difficult to get to stick to other layers. For the cards that we will write on, I used the Label Framelit to die cut the cards and then stamped a heart on each one and punched a hole in the corner so I could hang them on a key ring and loop around the stick so they don't get lost.
I hope you enjoyed my project. I had a ton of fun with it!
