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!
HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED!
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
ColorBox® Stylus and Tips
Americana Multi Surface Satin Paint by DecoArt – Pink Cadillac
Mason Jar with Lid; Pink, Yellow and Peach Cardstock; Scissors; Scallop Border Punch; Flower Punch; Enamel Dots; Orange Ribbon 12”; Paint Brush 1” Flat
HERE’S HOW TO MAKE IT!
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.
Stencil the Rails Set 1 onto Pink cardstock with Berry Crafter’s Ink, Yellow cardstock with Sunshine Crafter’s Ink and Peach cardstock with 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 the layers of stenciled cardstock with Xtreme Permanent Adhesive Runner and then attach to the exterior of the mason jar.
Trace lid of mason jar onto stenciled yellow cardstock, cut out with scissors and then attach to lid with adhesive runner. Punch three flowers from stenciled pink cardstock, attach to lid with clear Xtreme Tabs and then add enamel dots to center of each flower. Tie orange ribbon around the neck of the mason jar in a bow. Fill with goodies and gift to a friend, neighbor or co-worker!
