Other Supplies

Glass canisters, Tape measure, Scrapbook paper, Scissors, Foam Paint Brush, Damp paper towel, Hot glue, Zipper trim


1. Using a tape measure, measure around the jar to get the circumference.  This will be the length you will need your papers to be.  You will most likely have to piece the papers together like a patchwork.  Determine the height you would like your paper to be.  I like to leave a little space at the top and bottom for the flour and sugar to show through.

2. Cut scrapbook paper to the measurements as determined in step 1.  Apply the paper to the canister with Mod Podge.  Apply Mod Podge to the back of the paper.  Position the paper onto the canister.  Smooth with your fingers to remove any air bubbles.  Wipe any Mod Podge that spills over onto the glass with a damp paper towel. Wait 15 minutes and top-coat with a layer of Mod Podge.

3. Hot glue a strip of zipper trim to the top and bottom of the paper on the canister.


When Mod Podging on glass, keep a damp paper towel on hand for wiping any excess Mod Podge that might get onto the glass.
