Hello Pebbles fans!  Amanda here today with another fun and easy upcycled gift jar project.

The perfect little gift jar for all the sweet expecting mothers in your life made by @popperandmimi using @PebblesInc darling collection #SpecialDelivery.

As I was looking through my collection of empty food containers the other day, I saw a pair of spaghetti sauce jars that looked like they would make lovely gift containers. Inspired by the soft and delicate prints in Pebbles’ Special Delivery collections, I thought I would make some gift container for an expecting mama.

I started by spray painting the lids white.  The paint finish is pretty durable as I have put the lids on and removed them several times.  Next, I cut a strip of patterned paper and wrapped it around the jar, securing it in the back with glue dots.

I used my Bow-Easy bow maker to make the double bow at the top of each jar.  It is easy to use and it makes it really easy to get the right sides of the ribbon on the front of the bow.

Using a Prego spaghetti sauce label as my inspiration, I designed a sentiment and printed it on patterned paper.  I matted the sentiment with paper and adhered it to the jar.  I trimmed an It’s a Girl sticker and affixed it to the jar.

I used the same sentiment for both gift jars.  Click on the Freebies tab on my blog to download this sentiment for free.
Happy repurposing!

Finding the perfect colors to convey summer happiness is sometimes a challenge.

Have you ever made a beautiful homemade card for a friend living states away only to discover that when you went to mail it, it was a little too bulky for the envelope and the postage would cost an arm and a leg? Well, Laurel Seabrook understands that all too well and has found the perfect solution.
