Love Jar Duo

Who doesn't love cute, tiny jars? I found this duo at Target and fell in love with the sweet heart print on the lids!  Wanting to include the two jars together as a gift set, I even made a carrier box for them!


To get started, I used a large scallop and circle die to create the lid toppers.  I embellished with various die-cuts, doodle pop blue birds and enamel shaped hearts.


The jars measured 3.5" in diameter so to create the box I cut a piece of 12X12 paper down to 7" X 11" and scored (7") at 2" and 5"and the (11") at 2" and 9".  Next, I cut the square pieces along the four corners to make the flaps.  To the (inside) bottom of the box, I cut a piece of cardboard and covered with matching paper.  For the paper handle I doubled a strip of 1.5"X12" paper and attached with very strong adhesive tape.

The front of the box was simply decorated with a handcrafted bow with a large doodle button in the center.

Because the jars are fairly deep I was able to tuck in fairly substantial items inside!  
For the first jar I added a mini flip-album:



I used a mini jar die from my stash to cut the page pieces from the pistachio cardstock. Die cut scalloped mats were cut from various patterns from the 6X6 paper pad. I embellished the pages with hand-stitched X's, as well as little stickers and enamels.


To the second jar I added COPIC colored tags, layered embellishment bits, clips and doodle twine!

Lastly, I tucked some white crinkle shred around the jars and it's ready for my Valentine ♥

Thank you for joining me today!

♥A little about me♥  I'm currently designing for Doodlebug Design and Scrapbook Adhesives and have had the honor of serving on 20+ manufacturers or retailer  design teams over the years!  When I'm not working as a school administrative assistant, you can almost  always find me crafting cuteness for my Etsy Shop: Dot & Whimsy :) Aside from paper-crafting, I also enjoy making jewelry, cross-stitch, embroidery,  home decorating, reading and watching reality TV. But enough about little 'ole me...let's get on to the give-a-way!

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
