Jar Decoration & a second blog candy

Hello ladies, welcome to my blog. Find today’s entire posting over on the Whiff Of Joy Inspiration blog where i have many more additional photos and tips posted regarding the projects seen today.  Also … read to the end of this positing.. you can enter your name in a second drawing of a Whiff Of Joy stamp.
I have invited my friends Jorunn and Jeanette to “decorate a glass jar” check out their blogs to see what they came up withHere are a couple of ideas you could maybe make for your kids or even teacher. If you like to bake, the first jar would make a nice gift for your grandchild. You put all this time into your cookies.. why not make it extra special with a nice packaging?





 
The second one is actually even easier to re-create. I have found at my local store some new Prima flowers. They are being sold in a glass jar with a nice wooden lid. Not much you need to do here – cause you do not want to cover up the nice wood. I will probably make a matching Birthday card in pink and a quick and easy gift has been created for a friend.  
supplies used: sticky tape, Designer paper,  (Magnolia), distressed,  blending tool, Distress ink.   Sir Stampalot has a great selection of Copic markers and accessories, Nestabilities.

Stamps used on this jar is Oakley from Whiff of Joy and Stampin up Sentiments
This one uses Henry Celebrating Mouse with cup cake and Stampin up sentiments. Other nice stamps that i had in mind to decorate a glass jar with were…
Willow’s hot chicken soup – you can make a home made matzo ball soup (click to see the recipe) Strawberry girl – decorate a jam jar a little bit of magic – for all your Halloween or Valentines gifts
Thanks for looking and if you want.. enter your name with Mr. Linky to this posting and you will have a chance to win
1 Whiff Of Joy stamp of your choice

Such cute glases - such beautiful details...
- I love giving away decorated containers filled with a variety of thing - bath salts are lovely and usually appreciated or even a cookie mix where the recient just has to take the content add some fluid ingredients bake et voila homemade cookies - perfect for when you don't trust mailing services to deliver in a timely manner *lol*
