You don't have to go overboard with our Mason Jar Pockets to make something cute and gift-worthy. Laetitia Poissy has a surprise glassine bag idea that is simple and prettier than anything you'll find at a store.
LAETITIA POISSY: There are a multitude of ways to use Poolside's beautiful mason jar pockets. Today, I want to present two different projects that give boost to the jar's cuteness factor.
This first creation is a quaint gift bag meant to hold small surprises like candy or whatever type of tiny something or other you might have in mind.
It's quite simple to put together. I selected an assembly of small items from the Poolside & Confetti collections. I then chose a blend of sequins that corresponded with my embellishments and had a 'festive' feel.
I slipped the sequins inside the jar, leaving them to roam freely.
Underneath the jar, I layered two sheets of pattern paper and stitched around the top to create a 'sort of frame' for the jar to sit in. Finally, I decorated the jar with my chosen embellishments, keeping them vertical and somewhat overlapped.
The finished bag includes a cute gold glitter clip from Crate's Craft Market collection. Don't forget to add treats to the inside!
Moving on to my next project, a "holiday at sea" mini album, I went a slightly different direction with the jars.
I love the idea of pairing a special memento with a photo, together, in one of the mason jar pockets. Here, I captured a photo of my little girl walking in the sand while visiting a beach on holiday. I tucked it inside one of the jars and added a sprinkling of sand.
To keep with a Summer theme for my album, I accented the jar with a popsicle and sun from Poolside's Ephemera Pack. I love the collection! It makes me want to take a second vacation!
And there you have it, two jars --> two ways! Don't forget about our Poolside Mason Jar Challenge that is currently in the works–get the full scoop HERE.
