Amazing Paper Grace March Die of the Month Blog Hop – Mini 3D Vignette Floral Mason Jar
It doesn't take many steps past February to begin to ache for the stirrings of spring. Blooming flowers are the earliest sign and we have something to get you started. Today I'm introducing the Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month for March 2021, Mini 3D Vignette Floral Mason Jar.
Becca Feeken of Amazing Paper Grace sent me these lovely dies to create with.
Imagine kicking rocks as you walk down a sweet rural road, on one of the first days the weather hints that the seasons are starting to change. You pick wildflowers and rush home to put them into a jar of water to keep them perky for the days to come. This is the inspiration that struck Becca when she put together the flower and mason jar combination. It's so cute and sweet!!
This easy to assemble mason jar can contain anything, but today it holds layered flowers. This flat side look is just like a real bouquet. Glue them or layer them with foam tape to make a dramatic statement. The mason jar can be left solid or cut like a frame for a shaker card the stems are simply threaded through each lid to secure them for arrangement. If you're partial to flat cards, use the filigree band with two brads to hold your stems! This makes a lovely card front bouquet, complete with stems.
There are 16 dies included in the Mini 3D Vignette Floral Mason Jar
My Project Today using Mini 3D Vignette Floral Mason Jar
I wanted to make something bright and bold and really enjoyed making something with a real burst of colour. I really love the different flower dies in this Die of the Month kit. I added a little bit of extra depth to the colour on some of the plain coloured flowers with some Alcohol Marker Pens.
I think this set is so very versatile. I used the mason jar on the front of this simple treat box and I think it looks really cute ! It's such a great way to gift some sweet treats.
Designer Tip: I used clear acetate for both of my projects. Acetate can be a bit tricky to work with. It can attract finger prints, glue etc. I tend to cover both sides with bits of paper once they have been cut to size to keep them dust free and mark free until I am ready to put everything together.
