Unique containers always make gift-giving more personal, so I am always creating interesting ways to give gift cards. This DIY stenciled mason jar is the perfect size for some candy and a gift card. Match the patterns and colors to the recipient’s personal style and you end up with two gifts in one! Ann Butler Designs Stencils and Inks make this a quick and easy project.

- Ann Butler’s EZ De’s Stencil by StencilGirl® 1×4 Rails Set 1
- Ann Butler Crafter’s Ink by Clearsnap® Berry, Sunshine and Tangerine
- Inking Pouncer – these are similar to mine!
- Xtreme Permanent Adhesive by Tombow USA
- Xtreme Tabs by Tombow
- Americana Multi Surface Satin Paint by DecoArt – Pink Cadillac
- Mason Jar with Lid
- Pink, Yellow and Peach Cardstock
- Scissors – I love my Fiskars!
- Scallop Border Punch
- Flower Punch
- Enamel Dots
- Orange Ribbon 12”
- Paint Brush 1” Flat
Here’s how to create a Stenciled Mason Jar Gift Card Holder:
Remove lid, then wash and thoroughly dry mason jar. Paint outside of the jar with Pink Cadillac multi-surface satin paint. Let dry and apply a second coat, if necessary. This Multi-Surface Paint from DecoArt is a game-changer for painting smooth surfaces like glass. Super coverage and no streaking.
Stencil the Ann Butler Designs Rails Set 1 onto Pink cardstock with Berry Crafter’s Ink, Yellow cardstock with Sunshine Crafter’s Ink, and Peach cardstock with Ann Butler Designs Tangerine Crafter’s Ink using the Stylus and Tips. Load the Stylus by pouncing onto the ink pad and then apply the ink using a swirling motion with gentle pressure. Line up the patterns and stencil a second time, so the design is long enough to go around the mason jar. The lightest colored cardstock will allow the bright ink colors to really pop!
Cut out the stenciled yellow cardstock three Rail patterns wide and scallop punch the long edges. Cut out the stenciled orange cardstock two Rail patterns wide and then cut the center of the flower Rail pattern from the pink cardstock. Adhere to the layers of stenciled cardstock with Xtreme Permanent Adhesive Runner and then attach it to the exterior of the mason jar.
To finish the DIY Stenciled Mason Jar, trace lid of mason jar onto stenciled yellow cardstock, cut out with scissors, and then attach to lid with Tombow Xtreme Permanent Adhesive. Punch three flowers from stenciled pink cardstock, attach to the lid with clear Xtreme Tabs and then add enamel dots to the center of each flower. Tie orange ribbon around the neck of the mason jar in a bow. Fill with goodies and then gift to a friend, neighbor, or co-worker!
