Paper Players Challenge 36

DSCF6485

Happy Sunday to everyone!  I am back from my blogging vacation and ready to share my Paper Players Challenge 36 project with you.  This week, Nance is our host and she has chosen “Fun with Fabric” as her theme! 

Challenge 36

What a great challenge!  SU has some really pretty fabric right now---and I made a really, really easy project using a baby food jar that I had in my stash!  This makes a great hostess gift when you fill it with some buttons, brads, ribbon or a little incentive stamp:

I took a piece of Springtime Vintage fabric and cut a circle using my pinking shears, then used Sticky Strip to attach it to the edge of the jar lid, pleating it as I went around.  Then I tied on some narrow black grosgrain ribbon.  I cut a felt flower with the Fun Flower diecut, added a “leaf” of Baja Breeze seam binding and a button center accented with a pearl.  EASY!!!

  6. Welcome back I missed you! Your jar is very pretty. I made some like this and put some fiber fill under the cloth so I could stick pins in it. My great aunts use to put something else that would sharpen the pins in their pin cushions. We used it on my sons soap box cars but I can't think of what it is. Oh well Welcome home!
