Good evening my lovelies! I've just finished my little niece's Easter gift!
I'm a serious coffee drinker, and my preferred brand is Moccona. The jars are so pretty and useful that I have a problem throwing them in the recycling bin. (I've decanted my laundry powder, laundry soaker, even my cereal into various sized jars!) My sister-in-law decorated a Moccona jar and filled it with Easter eggs and chocolates one year as our gift. I finished the chocolate and then filled the jar with my espresso. This year I'm decorating and filling jars from my stash for Easter gifts to my family. And I'm going to show you how I did it. All measurements are in inches, and are based on me eyeballing my way through.
This is my first tutorial so bear with me. You can buy the items listed from my website. Just follow the links! :)
Easter basket jar - Materials needed:
50g Moccona glass coffee jar
B&T Duos paper of choice, I've used Chantilly (discontinued)
Adhesive tape (similar)
12inch paper trimmer
Hollyhock Exclusive Ink
Glamour Alphabet upper and lowercase stamp sets
My Acrylix block, I used 2"x3.5"
Ribbon or other embellishments, I used pink glitter gems.
1) Peel off the labels from jar and lid. Wash and dry your jar.
With larger Moccona jars, simply scale up your measurements. For a 95g jar, 2.5"x10.5". For a 200g jar, 3"x12". Or just measure the label after you remove it.
And there you have it! A quick, personalized way to turn your empty coffee jar into an Easter treat! I hope you've enjoyed this lil tutorial. :)
