I’m so excited to share a wonderful craft project with you today! This project was created by the amazingly talented Cathe Holden at Just Something I Made , using an image from here at The Graphics Fairy. She will be my guest blogger today, all photos and text in this post come from her blog. Cathe has created a gorgeous button jar label digital sheet in PDF format that you can download for free from her site here.
As far as a tutorial: print, cut and stick. That’s it.
A few tips: When cutting circles with scissors, you’ll cut more accurate when turning the paper and holding your scissors in one position. Also, I ink the edges of my labels with a marker to hide the white cut edge, it gives a more finished look. For labeling, either print onto full sheet label stock or use spray adhesive once the labels are cut out.
You can use the button labels on most any container. I placed the largest label onto a $1 craft store round wooden box and sanded here and there for a distressed look. I wrapped labels and bands on thrift store spice jars and labeled an old candy dish, courtesy of my friend Desirai. And lastly, I folded and ribboned the label topper over a small cracker jar found in Martha’s section at Kmart. You can also print the large lid image onto an iron-on transfer sheet and transfer to fabric, it will drape nicely and make a sweet gift for your favorite crafter.
And now, the photos. Have fun!
