I'm in love with the Kraft papers that are out at the moment. It kind of natural and raw and it goes with anything. Stapled ribbons, buttons, and embroidery thread wrapped around card stock and tied in a bow.
I collect little jam jar's where ever I go. I nab them of the tray before the waitress comes and clears the table. I use them for so many things. But they needed prettying up. So with a thin ribbon stuck with the strong toupee tape around the edge of the lid and buttons, beads, sequins ans small flowers, I have turned my little jars into gem pot's. I keep brads, pins, mini buttons and really anything little that you need to keep and see clearly where you have put them safely.
I used glossy accents to stick the bits and bobs on the top of the lids. I then coated the seed bead one's with a layer of glossy accents to make sure they were stuck fast.
Laura loves my pots, so I am making some for a tree present for her for Christmas. I like simple gifts.
