The Pickle Jar

Friday night was Cindy's workshop and she had it here in my Stampin' Studio.  She showed up at my door with the most beautiful Fruit Pizza (forgot to take a picture of it!!) I have ever seen and a lovely bunch of flowers for me.  She is so sweet!! 

Flowers I had to confess that I did not have a vase and she mentioned using a Mason Jar. I thought surely I had a Mason Jar and went to look.  All I could find was an emply pickle jar that I have saved for the kids in case we find a really cool bug, frog, turtle, etc.  I grabbed the pickle jar and added the flowers.  It just didn't look right, a beautiful bouquet of flowers in a pickle jar with a label on it.  I had about 5 minutes before the rest of the guests arrived so I scurried around in my studio and this is what I came up with.  I used a piece of Designer Series Paper from the Flock Together pack, the Beautiful Butterflies Big Shot Die, the Square Lattice Impressions Folder and a button from the Button Latte set.  The wrap slips on and off so I can change it.  I was literally done in under 5 minutes.  I am thrilled with it!!  Now I have a "vase" and I can customize it to my liking!!

  1. Awesome!! When I first saw it, I was ultra impressed, and then when I read your story, it sounded more like your style with the pickle jar and frogs and bugs….and I am still ultra impressed!

  2. Hi Barb … I am so happy when I see people re-purpose items … I do that a lot and people at work give me “weird” things to see what I’ll do. This is just great and looks better than a purchased vase! Thans for sharing that! Karen
