Sure, Poolside's mason jar embellishments are cute all by themselves, but what if you were to pair one with an actual glass 'mason jar'? CP Gal, Marcy Penner, gives the idea a try while thinking about her family's future Summer adventures and curious collection sprees.
MARCY PENNER: I hope you all are enjoying our themed projects on the blog these last few days! I'm thrilled to be taking my turn today.
So, here's my thinking. If one jar is good, then two jars is awesome, right?
My thought was that a jar would be a great place to keep all those little treasures over the Summer. You know...collected rocks, ticket stubs...things like that.
I started by grabbing a large shipping tag and one of the jar embellishments from Poolside.
I pulled out some other die-cuts and smaller embellishments that I thought might layer beneath and over it well.
I tucked a narrow die-cut right in the pocket and typed out some words that listed a couple of the things I thought we might accumulate this Summer.
I tucked those into the pocket as well and finalized the rest of my embellishments. I decided to just build on top of the mason jar, so that meant finding a few embellishments that were smaller than the jar.
I strung a piece of string through all the embellishments and tied it at the top.
I grabbed a large mason jar from our pantry and tied my embellished tag around the top. And just like that I have a jar that's just waiting for some warm weather and adventures.
I can't wait to see what we all gather this Summer!
