Mothers day in a jar...

I wasn't sure what I wanted to do for this weeks challenge but I did know I wanted to use this paper I recently bought. So after digging around my Rubber Cafe Collection I found this guy, the "Mini Jar" and decided I wanted to do something a little different. 

I stamped the jar image twice and then glued around the three edges (leaving the top open) to create a "jar" I then cut out the image of the top of the jar, folded it over the top and glued it to the back to create the lid. I then cut out a journaling card from the paper set and stamped it with the flower from the Hey Cupcake set. 
I also used a circle punch to make the hole to be able to grab the card.
I would have rather stamped a sentiment on the card as I'm one of those people who doesn't like my own hand writing but I didn't have one that would work for this project.

I think next time I would use the Large Jar so that I could fit a gift card inside.  this one was just a tad too short but I'm sure with a little modification it would fit one too.

I hope you enjoyed seeing my little contribution this week and look forward to hearing from you.
