Truly Grateful 3D

Anything but a card they said. Challenge it will be. This was created for The Paper Players latest challenge. A challenge indeed it was. I have been stuck in my little happy place creating cards for who knows how long. I've really never done any 3D objects. It was a really fun little project. Something new and different. I've been collecting jars for quite some time. I think this one was a jalapeno jar (don't worry, I washed it first). I can't stand throwing things away that I think may someday turn into a craft project.

Supplies Used:
Paper ~ Early Espresso, Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, First Edition DSP
Ink ~ Early Espresso, More Mustard, Crumb Cake
Stamp Sets ~ Gorgeous Grunge, Positively Chevron, Truly Grateful
Other Supplies ~ Linen fabric, burlap fabric, burlap ribbon, pool party ribbon


  1. What a beautiful way to decorate a jar-love how you have made this :)
    Best wishes,Nessa xx

  2. I love your recycled project...just lovely! So glad you went a bit out of your comfort zone to create this beautiful item! Thanks for sharing it with us at the Paper Players this week!

  3. So pretty, Melissa. I love the colors and I love the recycle angle! I love that you tied the sentiment color to the ribbon - it really pops from the tag. So glad you joined the Paper Players this week

  4. Melissa, this is gorgeous! I love all of the detail you have added and the fab fall color combo. Who knew a jalapeno jar could be SO beautiful. Way to go repurposing the jar. Thanks so much for joining us this week at the Paper Players for my anything but a card challenge! :)
