Altered Jars and Containers

Hi Everyone! I haven't posted any projects for this blog site for a few days. . .I've been busy working on cards for Angel's (Angelosity) Blog Candy for the past week which I posted primarily on my Stampin Inspirations blog site.

Last night I decided to do a few quickie projects and I mean quickie. It took less than 15 minutes each to alter each jar and container. All I did was wrap the jars and container with SU "Apple Cider" designer paper and added Prima flowers, chipboard, ribbons, and labels for each project.

Rather than buying containers at the store which can be quite pricey. . .save your jars and alter them. They make great containers for your embellishments and scraps.

The large jar was made using a Prego spaghetti jar which I use to store scrap ribbons. The other two jars stores embellishments.

I plan to do a few projects today for this blog site. If I finish them today, I'll post them this evening. Until later, folks!!
