Are you excited about the Washi Tapes giveaway? I've been reading the comments and you gals have a lot of great ideas!
When I first saw Washi Tapes, I immediately thougt about my jars and bottles. I love working with empty jars and bottles (remember these projects?) because, well... you can get them for free, and they are like a blank canvas you can work your magic on.
Today's tutorial involves an empty jar and Washi Tapes.
For this project, you will need:
- an empty jar with a cover. I used my last empty Gerber jar.
- A piece of fabric cut into a circle that is around 3 to 4 inches wider than the cover of the jar
- Washi Tape
- polyester fiber sheet (or batting, like the one used on quilts or comforter) cut into a circle the same size as the jar's cover.
- trim (lace, ribbon, beads, etc... not shown on the photo)
- glue gun and glue stick (not shown on the photo)
STEP 1: Take your circular piece of polyester fiber sheet and glue to the top of the cover. You can use more than one sheet if you want the cover to be really puffy. I used 2 layers for mine.
STEP 2: Lay out your circular piece of fabric right side down. Put glue on top of the polyester fiber sheet and glue to the center of the fabric.
|This will make it easier to center the cover on the fabric.|
STEP 4: Glue the trim around the side of the cover. I used my favorite cream lace for this. It's the same lace I used for my Easter Egg holders here and my Flower Pot pin cushion here. Your finished cover should look like this.
|I added a charm to hide the part where both sides of the lace come together.|
STEP 5: Now let's take the jar and Washi Tape. Apply Washi Tape around the jar. My Washi Tape (from Posh Tykes) has the text "Made with Love" written on it. Cute huh?
STEP 6: Put the cover on the jar and admire your work :)
Now what to put in it? Something "made with love" of course! I think this bracelet fits the description.
I'm loving the yellow and the small kitty charm.
And here it is, all packaged and pretty and ready to be received by someone special.
This is my first tutorial for 2012... yey! Working on more stuff to share with you!
