*Old Jar Makeover*

I was messing around with some old scrapbook paper I had laying out, wondering what I could do and decided to cover this old salsa jar.  I was at the dollar tree and found some cute scrapbook things~a mini photo frame and some leather pieces.  I threw together this cute little jar that now holds my mini glue sticks! ;)   Here is how i did it......

  • Old jar
  • scrapbook paper
  • old leather scraps
  • mini photo frame
  • glue gun
  • double stick tape

Take your jar and cover it with the scrapbook paper** I used the double sided tape to keep it secured*

The dollar tree had this package of leather scraps that i picked out and thought it would come in handy in this project.  I covered the leather scrap over the previous piece of paper. ** here i used the hot glue to secure the leather to the jar.**

I cut out an old photo of me and taylor and placed it in the mini photo frame...*I accidentally cut the side hope you cant tell ;( **

   Next I covered the lid....

and the sides...
Add your photo to the jar....
I added letters to the bottom....{I L Y} i love you

And that's it your DONE!!   Now i got myself a new home for my mini glue sticks!
