instructions

Jar Design:

  1. Base coat the mason jar and its lid using Licorice Folk Art Matte Paint.

  2. Use the Wicker White Folk Art Matte Paint to create a white square on the front of the Mason Jar.

  3. Use a fine tip paint brush to add small white dots in random spots all over the painted jar and around the painted square. This will create the composition notebook pattern. 

  4. Use the Pure Black Folk Art Matte Paint again to add three horizontal lines on top of the painted white square. 

  5.  Use Mod Podge and a paint brush to apply your choice of a cut out Mod Podge printable on top of the mason jar lid. 

 

Gift Tag:

  1. Print and cut out your choice of Mod Podge Printable. (Make sure it is printed to the size that you would like your gift tag to be. )

  2. Apply the cut out printable onto cardstock paper using Mod Podge. 

  3. Use scissors to cut the excess cardstock paper around the glued Mod Podge printable.

  4. Use a hole punch to cut a small hole at the top of the Mod Podge printable. 

  5. Use twine to string and attach the gift tag around the neck of the mason jar.
