Playing dress-up with jars

Well, when I say I am back, I guess that means I am really back, I just can't wait to share more of the crafty fun I have been having in just the last few without a ton of personal life stuff (I think I covered everything in my last post) here is my little project for this morning!  Yet another attempt at organizing my crafty room....but really I think the possibilities are endless with this one!

Really I would have to say this project took me about 10 min. and cost me nothing since I had everything sitting around....I really might be making more of these in different varieties today they were that simple!  I used the citra solv technique I explained wayyyy back in February click here to check it out.

I just used scraps of fabric I had around and transfered my wording, then attached the fabric with a glue gun and a pretty pin for extra security.  I liked the look of the finished top edge so I just folded the top fabric over knowing it would be covered with ribbon later.  But I just love the frayed look of the bottom so I left it.... sewing pros are probably gasping in horror but hey.....I am just a craft-a-ly imperfect girl here, right or wrong!

And finally just add ribbon.  Woo hooo you have jars of junk (or I mean odds and ends) that look cute and you can't even notice the "stuff" sitting around!

And I know I said the possibilities are endless with this idea....because I got to thinking.... wouldn't this be cute if you made a candle and decorated the outside like this with a cute quote?!?  Or what a bout table numbers for a wedding with flowers inside the jars?  What do you think?  Do you have any ideas?!
I would LOVE to hear from you!

I am linking up here.

Adorable! I need some of these for my kitchen counter. Want to know my current storage system for random clutter? An Easter basket that never made it's way down to the basement after Easter . . . yikes. Your way is better ;-)

First, thank you, Jaime, for your email, you "made my day"!!! The little jars are just what I need to organize my doll making supplies on the kitchen cabinet, and I can hardly wait to try my hand at making some......way too cute! And you are right about this project extending to many other uses and ideas! I am seeing a bunch of them on a shelf in the garage to help my love organize in style!....will be using tiny rope in place of ribbon for him.
