QUEEN OF HEARTS- FIND YOURSELF A CUP

Welcome to the Queen of Hearts Event!
Here is my contribution!
The friendliness and caring felt in THIS stamped phrase, brings an image to mind, of a shared pot of tea, and warm conversation. A jar of tea, makes a great little gift. Not over the top like a Ferrari with a big bow, but something that implies warmth and caring.
As you can see, the band around the jar, has layers of DESIGNER PAPER, matting the stamped sentiment. I used SPELLBINDERS NESTIBILITIES LABELS SIX to cut the paper layers.
Designer paper and the SENTIMENTon the glass insert is enough for the lid.
I hope this simply done gift jar inspires you- so many sweet gifts can be given in a jar, any time of year, and any occasion. Or better yet, no occasion at all- just because.

  11. Great idea and I have the stamp! As said before, it could be used many different ways with another stamp or even hand written or typed sentiment if you do not have a stamp, though I have many. There is a way to use for most holidays or occasions. Thanks for a wonderful use for jars Holly.

  27. I am a tea lover and have shared many a cup with friends as we chat in the living room. Your blog however brought to mind an earlier day of sharing cups of tea with my mother over the kitchen table as I recounted my school day to her.
    I am curious about the best glue to use when adhering to glass.
