Good morning my fellow crafty people!
Today is Crafty Secret's design team challenge and linky party! AND I have a tutorial to boot!
I had purchased cute little Jelly Belly boxes for Valentine's Day.
So I thought it might be cute to alter them.
Because that's what I do. Take cute things and make them cuter.
I love, love, love shaker cards and made mini ones with the little jars. I filled 'em up with sequins and clear Microbeads.
Here are the boxes I purchased in the Valentine aisle at Target.
I apologize in advance for the poor photos. That's what happens when you take the photos at night. :)
I covered each box with musical paper from the Crafty Secret's Valentine kit.
I printed the jars from the Button up digital set. I made them pretty small, 2 inches.
I took my X-acto knife and cut the inside out.
I am a bit X-acto knife challenged, so as soon as I had the opportunity to use my scissors, I took it!
I added a piece of acetate to the back of the jar, glued it, and added my magnets to hold it down until it was dry.
I printed the flowers at a 1/2 inch so they would fit nicely on the jar.
I gave it a bit of color using watercolors. I wasn't super neat because I knew I would be cutting the image out, and adding glitter to it.
I wanted to add a little heart to the center and used a punch and glitter.
The most challenging part was to add the foam tape skinny enough to fit on the jar.
Once the foam was in place I filled it with sequins and microbeads.
Then I added string, the flower and heart to finish off the jar.
Here is one more look at the final product. :)

Chicago got about 14 inches of snow yesterday, so today the kids and I are off!
I am thinking a pajama day is in order!
