PTI Release in Review...

Hey crafty friends!  It's release day over at Papertrey Ink!  Are you in the mood for Christmas now?  I sure am!  I started by making a candle holder to use this season.  I pulled out Enclosed: Bell to create this super easy mason jar candle holder.

First, I cut the solid bell die out of a sheet of Adhesive Label.  I cleaned the jar and put the the bell label on the front.  I pained the whole jar with some red Acrylic paint.  I cut the outline die out of a Gold Adhesive sheet and then added that to the front.  Pinterest is full of painted mason jars and these are such fun and easy projects.  Here is one I was inspired by.

To finish it off, I made a tag so this would work as a gift.  OH....the jar has some beans in it and then added in a candle too!

Here is a card using the new Treetops Glisten papers and stamps...

I added in some twin detail using the new String Frames dies.  Love those!

Next, I have a get well card using the new Keep it Simple: Surgery set and Tucked In: Get Well.

I added the bannered sentiment to the watercolor paper and a little silver thread to my card front.  I stamped the Tucked In sentiment on this inside...

And last, I used the new Deck the Halls set to make a fun little tag.

    1. I got the adhesive labels from Papertrey Ink but you can use any labels. What I've been using lately is just a roll of vinyl from hobby lobby.

  21. That jar is fabulous! Maybe I am slow on the uptake here... did you paint the jar with the bell on it? How did you protect the vinyl? I am not a crafty person so I need clear step by step directions!

    1. I put the vinyl shape down first and painted the jar. After the paint dried, I pulled the bell off to reveal the window. Then I cut the gold outline Die and attached it to the jar.

  22. Hey! I was wondering if I could use the photo of your mason Jar for an advertisement in my school project? It looks amazing :)
    Thank you ~~~
