Hot Diggity Dog - Decorated Jar

Posted by SheilaHalliwell, 21 Dec, 2011

Make a fun gift by upcycling an old jar using the Hot Diggity Dog collection.

  1. Take a plastic jar and punch a scalloped circle from yellow card and attach it to the lid. Place a Hot Diggity Dog Elements topper in to the centre of the circle.

  2. Cut a strip of green polka adot paper to measure the same depth as the lid and attach in to place using double sided tape. Place silver laser hearts around the strip evenly.

  3. TOP TIP: When sticking a 3D topper on to something rounded, add extra 3d Foam dots to the layered pieces to keep the curved shape.

  4. Take a Papermania white tag and use it as a template to cut a tag from yellow card. Cut the yellow tag slightly smaller to fit on to the white tag then glue in place.

  5. Using green alphamini cardstock stickers, place the words ‘Pet Fund’ on to the tag. Punch a hole in the top of the tag.

  6. Wrap a length of green organza ribbon around the neck of the jar and feed the ribbon through the hole in the tag. Tie in a bow at the front of the jar and add a gold bell to decorate.

  7. Cut a strip of green polka dot paper to fit around the jar and tape in place.

  8. Take the dog topper and layer on to yellow card. Glue a 1.5cm strip of yellow card to one edge of the topper. Glue the topper in place and wrap the yellow strip around the back of the jar and join it to the other side of the topper for added security.
