Mygrafico Monday Feature ~ Funky Jars

Welcome to Monday's feature at Mygrafico.  Today we are highlighting Lindsay's Stamp Stuff set

The team have come up with some wonderful ideas for using these fun funky jars... do pop over for a look.

I had an idea in mind.... to do with acetate and a shaker card.... but after a number of attempts, experimentation and a few choice curses~ @!!!@@  I resorted to Plan B

Mygrafico 7 May Feature

I tried printing onto the acetate but it just won't dry - tried a heat gun, leaving it for about 4 hrs and still not dry.  So gave up, used the bit I cut out, added the buttons and a ribbon.  The background PP is by Webster's Pages and I computer generated the banner.   

I've thought of lots of other things to put into these jars.... you can get them here.

Thanks for visiting me today..  I'm having a night off crafting and catching up on blog commenting and on Flickr.  I've got a couple more cards to share tomorrow.  Till then....

Great card. It is frustrating when things don't go as you planned, but this card looks wonderful. I love the buttons in the jar and perfect with the bow.

Sometimes we just have to move on, Dawn! While I'm sure that your original idea was a good one, this card is super-sweet! Reminds me of happy hours playing with my Mom's button jar. Very special.
