A Pretty Vintage Ribbon Cookie Jar

Sometimes we need a little bit of pretty around our home or office to make the day a little bit sweeter.  I wanted to create a pretty candy jar for my crafting table (we love our sweets at my card making and crafting classes). I couldn't resist taking a few moments to decorate the perfect jar (from a discount store but a re purposed jar is great, too!) to create a pretty accent to our crafting area!
Create a quick, easy and pretty decorated jar with:
1-1/4" Burlap Ribbon (132140)
White Jute Ribbon (137904)
Sahara Sand 7/8" Lace Trim (137866)
Silicone Craft Sheet (127853)
Clear Jar & Hot Glue

Creating a wrapped jar is easy - simply grab the ribbons you like and hot glue (with your jar!).  Here I wanted a vintage accent with a feminine flair and texture - so that it is interesting if we pass it around the craft area.

The Burlap Ribbon was applied in two layers.  Add a line of hot glue, apply the ribbon and wrap it around the jar.  Cut it so that it overlaps the adhered hot glue start.  Use hot glue to finish this line of ribbon.  Apply a second line under this.

Cover the White Jute Ribbon over this and then the Sahara Sand Lace Ribbon Trim.  Tie extra Sahara Sand Lace Trim to the top for a cohesive look.
Happy Tool Tip Tuesday!  Here is a Hot and Helpful Tip!  Hot Glue is known to be - HOT (lol) and burn our finger tips and more.  When you use it on ribbon it's known to bubble through the wholes in the ribbon.  So use the hot glue but use your Silicone Craft Sheet after applying the hot glue then ribbon.  This will prevent your fingers from getting burned, push the hot glue into the ribbon for a flat and clean look.  The Silicone Craft Sheet will remove cleanly for a safe and clean application - YAY!  I use this sheet under most of my adhesives to protect my project and crafting surface - it even makes great 3D Flowers like this one - it's a MUST HAVE in your crafting.

What Others are SAYING about Gettin' Crafty Stampin'...

Jamie is so passionate and creative about making cards - and wants everyone else to join her in the fun! She is so encouraging and positive in her attitude, helping me along when I get frustrated - and then rejoicing with me at the finished product! I love going to her classes to get new ideas, learn techniques, and have loads of fun in the process. ~ Christine C.

Jamie has wicked awesome classes! If you don’t like a particular stamp or paper/ink color Jamie wants you to change it to suit your style! I did my sister-in-law’s entire bridal shower from invitations/thank you cards, party favors to decorations, it was quaint and whimsical! Everyone ooh’d and ahh’d! I’ve had lots of special requests for classes and Jamie delivers; she always has tasty treats and flavored coffees too ~Ashley W.

I have been attending Jamie's classes for over a year. Her ideas for cards are fresh and fun. She always tries to have several different styles of cards available, so everyone gets to make cards that fit their personal style. The techniques she shows each class can be used in many different applications. She is very patient teacher when instructing class members on how to use the Stampin Up products. ~ Carol D.

If I looked up the word sparkle in the dictionary, I would find Jamie Albanese picture there. I have had the sweet blessing of knowing Jamie and her family for over 5 years now. Every time I am with her I feel loved and inspired. When I am in one of her classes I feel my creative juices flow, as she encourages me to go outside my comfort zone. Jamie helped our girl scout troop make cards for a soldier who needed some encouragement!!! For any of you who have not been in one of Jamie's classes, please don't let another day slip by. She is a beautiful friend and she will become yours too. ~ Blessings, Karen:-)

Jamie has a great eye for style and flair, and it shows in her work. Yet she can pick up on your own individual style and makes great recommendations. I love that she is always flexible for last-minute decision maker mommies like me! So much fun to host craft events with your friends and family - that personal touch always means so much. ~ Adonna
