I love this time of the month, Papertrey Ink countdown! Today is the day that the design team has put together an assortment of fun ideas using the soon to be released stamp sets Friendship Jar & Friendship Jar Fillers. Illustrated by Nichole Heady and based off of concepts and sketches by Michelle Wooderson, these two talented ladies were able to come up with these wonderful coordinating sets that are loaded with fun and endless possibilities!!!
My three year old son has been obsessed with bugs lately (all except for spiders of course, lol!). So, he was my inspiration for today's project. I've come up with an idea that's perfect for his or any little boy's (or possibly girl's) next birthday party! An acetate bug jar invitation and a bug jar party favor... This is a simple project that's easy to replicate and here is how it's done...
For the invite, start out by stamping and coloring the bee (from All About You Additions, soon to be released as well) onto a kraft card base. Next die cut the jar from acetate, the lid and scallops from kraft cardstock and a label from white cardstock (using the coordinating dies). Stamp die cut accessories with coordinating images and the sentiment. Here's a tip: I used Palette Noir ink when stamping the jar onto the acetate, which worked great. Just make sure to give it time to dry before handling.
Assemble the jar and it's accessories together. Place dimensional adhesive onto the back of the jar, making sure to hide it behind the cardstock accessories (as pictured above). Then adhere to the card base over the bee.
Now onto the bug jar and the hand made button bee accessory...
Start by punching holes through the lid of a Ball Glass Preserving Jar (16oz). Then cover it with a hand cut fabric scalloped circle...
Which has been stamped with the bee (from All About You Additions) and "for you" (from Friendship Jar Additions) in Palette Noir ink and colored. Wrap lid with twine.
Finish it off with an adorable hand made fluttery bee. Here is how it's done...
Attach a glue dot to the center of multiple twine strands. Loop one side and attach.
Place another glue dot, loop other side and attach. Thread button with twine antennas and adhere another glue dot to hold in place.
Top twine with the button to complete. Now attach it to your project! Wouldn't this little bee just look too cute as a pink buttoned butterfly or even attached to a card!
