Valentine Jar

 Good morning everyone. This is Chris from Get Inspired With ChatterScene. First I wanted to thank Sheila for asking me back again this month.

 For todays project I put together a cute little Valentine's Day jar. I had a lot of fun doing this project.

First I started with an old peanut container. I peeled off the label and ran it through the dishwasher.

I then took some Stampin Up paper and cut it at 7x4 so it would wrap around the jar half way.

Then I opened up my Cricut Craft Room.  

The bug is from the Cricut Cartridge Simply Charmed. And the scalloped circle is 
from the Cricut Craft Room Basics digital cartridge.
The bug and its layers I cut at 3 inches. The scalloped square I cut at 3.25 inches.
I used a red ink around the scalloped square. 
And black ink and red chalk to draw in the face ( I hid the contours of the face when cutting it )

After glueing the paper to the jar I took my pink ribbon and wrapped it around
having it meet in the front of the jar. Taped it in the front and then glued the the scalloped square 
over it. I then took a couple of 3d pop dots and added the cute love bug to the front.
Took another piece of the pink  ribbon, some read thread, and a red button.
Created the bow and then glued on the side.
Then I added some glitter to his antennas and his heart. 
The lid on the jar I took off white ribbon and glued it around the jar.
And then added the finishing touch of the red thread and button to the lid.
I then added some fun Valentine's Day candy to the inside:)

Thank you so much for checking out my post here at She's A Sassy Lady.
