Back to School Jars by Cathy H.


Hi! Cathy Harper here, sharing a couple of quick projects created with mason jars and SRM Stickers!  My little granddaughter, Raini, will be going to first grade this August so I made a couple of gifts for her to take her teacher on the first day of school!

I painted two mason jars.  First I applied a coat of flat black paint, let it dry and then added a couple of coats of yellow.  After they are completely dry, you can scrape the paint off of any areas you want to look distressed with your fingernail.  Next, have fun and add some SRM Stickers.  I added a bunch of pencils and then completed my vase with SRM Stickers and twine.  I used First Grade/Say with Stickers mini for my pennant and added it to a straw, then added Maraschino Twine....my favorite!  And just to pull all of the reds together, I added the adorable little apple sticker from the Say It with Stickers/Teacher set.

For the second vase, I made a tag with SRM Stickers and added a bit of hemp twine and a whole bunch of flowers.  And yes, I will get Raini new flowers to take on the first day of school!

Here's a close up of the tag created with Labels by the Dozen/Bright and 
Say It with Stickers/Teacher set!   I just add a few paper flowers, a button and a bit more maraschino twine to finish it!
