Reverse Confetti February Blog Hop!


BlogHop2

Welcome to the February Reverse Confetti Blog Hop!  The DT is showcasing some fabulous ways to use Reverse Confetti products for Valentine's gifts!  You should have arrived from the Reverse Confetti blog......HERE.


I've been planning this project for my daughter's teacher for Valentine's day ever since my friend Wanda Guess showed these amazing jars she did for the Christmas holiday.  I wanted to translate her idea into a Valentine theme.  

BlogHop1

I started with diecutting the largest heart from the Love Note Confetti Cuts and adhered it to my jar with removable tape.  This will serve as my "window" to show off the goodies inside.  I started by painting the jar with 2 coats of acrylic craft paint by Martha Stewart.  (hence the picture of my jar upside down).  You must start with a clean jar and allow plenty of dry time in between coats.  Once done, I peeled off the heart diecut, sanded lightly with sandpaper, and embellished the perimeter with glitter gems.

BlogHop3

I attached a tag that was cut down into a square with the rectangle die from Class Act Confetti Cuts.   I stamped the hearts from Whole Lotta Hearts in Antique Linen Distress Ink that was stamped off for a very light stamping effect so that I could stamp my sentiment from Label Me.  A few die cut  hearts from Love Note were attached at the top of the tag and was tied off with twine.

BlogHop4

Lastly, I want to share how I embellished the top of my jar.  I used the Circles 'n Scallops Confetti Cuts to use as my layers for the top.  I again stamped the hearts (Whole Lotta Hearts) in Antique Linen Distress Ink onto my white circle and added a die cut heart (Love Note) and Arrow Confetti Cut.
