Little Jam Jars and Tag Embellishments with Video Tutorial!
Hi friends, I recently shared a tutorial on my Youtube channel on how I made some adorable tags and jar embellishments. These were tons of fun to make, and work perfectly as either happy mail or gift toppers for many occasions!
First, I received some adorable stamps as a swap gift, and you can see one pictured here to the right. I had also recently purchased some stamps from BoBunny I wanted to play with, and decided to combine both. I added the little girl image to a tag, colored her with Spectrum Noir and Nuvo Markers, and stamped the sentiment and Hot Air Balloon using Ranger Distress Oxide Inks.
To distress the papers I also used Ranger Distress Crayons, and finished them off with Ivory Seashell Nuvo Crystal Drops.
Here you can see several items I was inspired to create and share also in my video...
Above is a close-up of the Jar embellishments I created with Crafter's Companion Jam Jar dies, and Sizzix Funky Floral #1 die set. The little flowers were the perfect addition to my acryilic shimmery jars. I cut them out of felt, and hand-stitched them adding small pearls to their centers. They are delicate and pretty!
I also added twine, little acrylic hearts, and stamped mages to make each jar unique. To "fill" them with jam, I used BoBunny glitter paste in Tutu, as well as Martha Stewart fine glitter, and an embossing folder left little bows in the blue jar, topped with a vellum and mulberry flower.
I love adding unique touches to my embellishments. Not only do they add a hint of glimmer, but they also add gorgeous texture to all my handmade projects.
I hope that you have enjoyed this post, and that you can
Be inspired, Be Blessed~ Raquel
