Watch Us Wednesday with Debbie Marcinkiewicz: 3-D Mason Jar Tutorial

Today, Debbie is here to show us all how to make an adorable, 3-D mason jar card full of whimsy and fun!  First start off by either die cutting some cute mason jar pieces from Buff Ivory Cardstock.   If you don't have a die, you can hand cut the pieces (you can find images on line for hand cutting purposes).
Next, ink the edges of all the cut pieces and stamp sentiments as desired.  Pull a snipett of lace trim from your treasure baskets to attach to the mason jar top.

The next step is to glue buttons randomly onto the base of the die but mason jar shape -- Debbie used hot glue, but you could use any strong craft glue.

Next, you'll need to adhere some foam pop dots to the back side of the mason jar cut out.  Debbie used several dots in each spot until she achieved the right depth for the cut out to sit evenly on top of the mason jar filled with buttons.

The final steps are to complete your card by decorating as desired!  Here, Debbie, machine sewed a cute polka dotted picket fence onto a base of Lunch Bag Kraft Cardstock.  Next, the button filled mason jar back was adhered on top of the picket fence on the base of the card.  Center the mason jar cut out with stamped sentiment over the button filled mason jar back and push down on the pop dots so they stick to the cardstock base.  Attach the sentiment 'label' on top of the button filled mason jar.

Debbie attached a die cut butterfly and some pretty Pink Baker's Twine to the top of the button filled mason jar. 

And for the final step, Deb glued some more polka dotted patterned paper to a Chipboard Banner Piece and attached a Tiny Wooden Clothespin to the Banner Piece.   And there you have it ... a {sweet} 3-D mason jar filled with 'berries' ... perfect for our 'Farm Fresh' challenge this week!
