more Mint Motif sneak peeks

sweet of you jars

For today’s card, I used the small candy jar images. I love old fashioned candy jars. In our old kitchen, they lined our shelves, along with cute candy scoops. They just make me smile.

Each jar was colored with Copic markers and then a layer of Glossy Accents was added. Once the accents dried (overnight, just a suggestion :)), each of the jars was cut out.

To make the little shelf that the jars are sitting on, I cut a piece of cardstock to length and 1 1/4”. The cardstock was scored every 1/4”, making a box with an extra flap to adhere it together. Then I die cut a piece of wood paper and adhered it to the front of the little box. Pretty cute and easy idea. :)
