"Love In a Jar" Cardz TV Design Team Challenge #31

Happy Friday my crafty friends!  Today starts a new challenge over at Cardz TV.  Mary gave our DT a challenge to make a card, layout, or craft project using something you would put in a jar.  I remember going to my dad's office when I was little, and the secretary had treats in a jar.  So I pulled out Mary's awesome new Cardz TV  stamp set called "Love In a Jar."
 I stamped the large jar and fussy cut around it.  I took a 3 inch scallop punch and cut out a topper for the jar.  I punched an oval out of the center.  In between the two jars is a holder for the nuggets.  It is a 1 1/2 x 4 1/2 piece of cardstock that was scored and folded.  On the 1 1/2 inch side it was scored at 1/4, and 1 1/4.  On the 4 1/2 in side it was scored at 1 1/2, 3.  Cut the small middle scorelines up to the intersection.  I put sticky tape on the long sides and bottom flap and adhered it to the back side of the punched jar.  I used paper from a 6 x 6 paper pad from Doodlebug Design Inc. called Fruit Stand.  I used the Word Window punch from Stampin' Up, and added twine on top.  What do you think?

Now it's your turn to make a card, layout, or craft project using something you would put in a jar.  It's okay if you don't have this set.  But it's a really cute set to add to your collection.  I can't wait to see what you create.  You have until June 27, 2013 to enter your project.  Mary will be giving away a set of her stamps to the winner!   I hope you check out the other Design Team ladies' blogs for more inspiration.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I would really "Love" to hear from you!  Have a great weekend!

Lots of Hugs,
