Golden Mason Jar Gift Bag

Hi everyone! I'm here to share a project I created for a challenge that is going on over at Sizzix's blog. My inspiration comes from the photo below. I love the soft, blurred and watercolor feel of the photo and this my take on it.




I started off with a small polka dot gift bag and added soft and vintage looking cardstock. Next I cut a jar from the packaging of what Eileen Hull's Canning Jars, 3D diecut came in. Yep, the jar is plastic…I then embossed it with the Snowballs embossing folder which is from the Winter Set from Sizzix.



I then applied three coats of Gold Enamel Glitter Paint and once dry I cut and twisted two pieces of 20 gauge copper wire around the neck of the jar and "curled" all the ends.



I added a vintage earring I had received in a swap along with some twigs to the corner of the jar. I cut the flowers and leaves from Brenda Walton's Holiday Greenery diecut, shaped and added sequins and gems/jewels/dew drops to the centers of the flowers. I cut from matboard a tag from the Tags, Mini diecut (Retired Sizzix Orginal). I sprayed it with Tattered Angels Sugar Plum Fairy and once dry I added a rub on and flower to finish it off. I then tied it to the wire. 


I adhered lace and velvet ribbon to the bottom of the bag. What a perfectly adorable way to present a gift to a friend. If you have any questions please let me know. Be sure to check out Sizzix Challenge for this month and see what everyone else has created.
Also I am submitting this project for the Paper Wing Productions September Challenge.
