Club Project #2 - Blessing Jar

...or candy jar...or, well it could be so many things:)  Although it is hard to see in this picture, we decorated these jars with a piece of dsp from the Fresh Prints stack that is just a hair narrower than 2" and then we punched BOTH ends with the angled tag topper punch and that is how we tyed it around the jar...we then attached the greeting (stamped with the Perfect Pennants stamp and cut out with the banners framelit dies) with a metallic mini clothes pin...all of these supplies are available in the new Occasions catalog.

The star of this project is the rose on top!:)  We took 2 pieces of coordinations cardstock (I chose primrose petals and real red) and cut out 2 spiral flower bases with the Spiral Flower Originals die...we then sanded the edges with SU's sanding system and then rolled them together tightly...after rolling them into a tight flower bud, we let them spring open a bit and then pressed the petals a bit flat with our palms...then when we were happy with the look we glued the flower in place with some hot glue.  I am loving making these flowers! ...and the club ladies seemed to like it too:)
