Hello Everyone! I don't know about you, but I was blown away by the new "Gather" collection by Maggie Holmes! I just love it! It is like fall mixed with unicorns and ballerinas and pretty much all my favorite things! As soon as I saw it I knew that I wanted to use it to make not only mini albums and layouts and cards, but also home decor pieces because it's just the perfect collection to use to make something pretty for your house! I found some really cute teal colored mason jars with copper lids and they practically called out to me to be altered into something adorable for my newly redecorate bedroom, using the "Gather" collection!
I wanted the jar to have a "fall" kind of style to it but not in an obvious way so that I could keep it out all year too. I decided to fill the inside of the jar with a couple of the pretty leaves that come in the ephemera pack and the beautiful transparency ballerina.
On the outside of the mason jar, I put a few chipboard hearts and I stuck the cute little crepe paper embellishment to the lid.
For the tag that I made to tie onto the jar, I used some of the pretty patterned paper in the 6x6 pad and sewed onto it the chipboard word "sweet". I decorated the tag with a little bow and a little wood swan button from the mixed embellishment pack. I also added a little sticker that says "the little things"...which to me are the sweetest in life! To add a little extra something special to the tag, I attached some of the mini tassels from the collection to hang from the tag.
I really love how my "sweet jar" turned out and to me it's a reminder to be grateful and appreciate all the little, sweet things in life that are in themselves, precious miracles that make life worth living... Falling leaves, lovely memories, holding hands with the one you love, and making pretty things...these are the kinds of little things that just fill my heart up! I hope this has inspired you to make a "sweet jar" of your own filled with things that make you smile and with a little tag "reminder" of how beautiful this world is!
