A Perfect Jar for Scraps

The other week, I shared that I LOVE the Dear Lizzy Jar print paper. But I really LOVE the Jar Stamp set!

It's such a great bargain, too. You get the empty jar, a "Thank You" sentiment, a Summer description and four little goodies to fill the jar with.

So, I was playing around with some of my leftover scraps from other projects and decided to make some M'nM holders.

First, I used the blank card itself and re-scored it into a matchbook. Stamped 3 jars and cut one out with the X-acto knife. Stapled the top flap and added a strip of DP to hide the staples. The extra flower in the corner also helps hold it closed.

For the second one, I used the envelope. I stamped a jar, place a mat inside the envelope and cut the jar out with the X-acto and then a super sharp scissors. I used scraps of paper from the "Hip Hip Hooray" collections to decorate the front of the envelope.

After I cut-out the jars, I didn't like that I had lost some of the shading details of the jar. So, I stamped a jar onto clear acetate with StazOn ink. Then, I taped it to the inside of the card and envelope. The M'nMs are in little bags that are taped to the inside so it stays behind the jar.

Really simple to do and I loved that I got to use some of my leftovers!
