Feeling inspired.....

I am very excited about the project that I have to show you.......
I really like it!
This is an inspiration jar......
All you need is an empty jar, some cardstock, embellishments and ribbon (mine had to be in purple!)....
1. Decorate the body of your jar.
2. Decorate the lid of your jar.
3. Add 3d gloss to the lid and allow to set - this gives a lovely finish to the lid.




Now for the inside of the jar......
4. Create lots of tags.
5. On each of the tags write a technique - eg... stamping, embossing, paper folding etc etc
6. Decorate and add ribbon.

Now whenever my mojo leaves or if I am ever just having one of those days....... I shake my jar..... take out 3 tags...... and that becomes my recipe for the project I am making.
I think this has to be one of my favourite things!!!
I hope it helps you out too.....
If you make one, I would love to see it.

Happy crafting,
Nikki x
