Jar of Joy - Moxie Fab World
One of my favorite blogs/website is Moxie Fab World. It is such a great site to visit and goes along with the one craft magazine, PaperCrafts, that I get! (Thank you to my favorite sister Julie) and in the Sept./Oct. issue, the Moxie Fabs column with Cath Edvalson, was Jars of Joy! It is about using a jar stamp, a jar cutout or a jar! I read through the column and really liked it as I have a Mason jar stamp that I like to use. So when Cath shared on Moxie Fab World about Jars of Joy and issued the Jars of Joy challenge, I decided that I would make my Jar of Joy. I have a jar that I put all my change into, and also the change from the washing machine and from Keith's dresser. That is my money!! In the last year or so, money has gotten tighter, especially with the girls graduating from high school and starting college next week, so my rubber stamp/paper/copic funds have been super tight. I now have 12 copics and I buy them with coupons at Michael's!! So, here is my Jar of Joy - my change for my stamps! Rubberstamping and making my own cards is one of my joys, so now my jar looks beautiful. I used some scrap papers in pink and chocolate and used my nestabilities to cut out the circles and scallops. I used some brown and pink elasticized ribbon from Ribbon Carousel to go around the top of the paper. Made the tag and glued it and the flower to the knot of the ribbons I tied around the jar. The lid is a really old lid from one of my fancy blue antique jars and it has a perfect opening to put the change in.
