A long while back, I purchased a set of these plastic storage jars at Hobby Lobby. (click on the photo above for the direct link) I had one that I wasn’t using for anything and decided to “play” with it today:)
To make this cute project you will need the following: Plastic Storage Jar, Small “geometry” stencil (found where most office supplies can be found), a few stamps,waterproof ink pad, and alcohol spray ink.
( you can make your own ink, see how here.)
I cut the tags down to fit the jar I was using. Then I taped up the areas of the stencil I wasn’t using with some washi tape I had on hand (you can use masking tape)
I sprayed the ink over the stencil onto the card and wiped the excess ink off the stencil with a baby wipe. ( I keep these on my work table at all times) I took the wipe and “blotted” the color I had wiped onto it, on the tag.
I added a bit of doodling with a thin black multi liner, then stamped each card
(I did all 4 sides of the jar) with a sentiment.
* Remember to use an ink that is waterproof ( I used StazOn) so that it doesn’t smear when you add Mod poge.
To Finish the project, glue on a cute ribbon, and when all is dry, Mod Podge the decorated cards to the jar. (Ribbon and all)
The Mod Podge will protect the paper tag if it gets wet. I recommend applying several coats.
I think this would make an adorable centerpiece idea for individual luncheon/tea tables, or several in a row down the center of a long dining table! You can coordinate the colors with the theme of your party or flowers that you choose.
Perfect for a special summer get together.
