Lovin' the jars..

Oh my. My kits are all packaged up and boy are they cute.
This kit comes with oodles of packaging goodness. You'll be the first to get a sampling of some brand new items coming to my Etsy shop soon. Packed full of pretty blue and orange themed goodies, you'll be on your way to packaging up some super duper cute gifts with this kit. The embellished Friendship Jar doo dad really steals the show but let me show you another goodie you can make with your kit contents.

For this cute accent, I'm using one of the weathered stained clothespins, an Orange Soda Carnival Ticket, a Tiny Tag, a snippet of vintage inspired fabric, a vintage button and the orange and white baker's twine. Assemble the goodies together in simple collage style, sewing the twine through the button and all layers for extra sturdiness. Use Scor-Tape to adhere the piece to the clothespin. Have I told you how much I love clothespins? Oh boy, stay tuned for more colors coming soon to my Etsy shop. Drool worthy. Next up, stamp a sentiment on the Tiny Tag from Friendship Jar.
Wind it around the secured button for cute, dangly tag. Voila, you've now got yourself a cute clippie to attach to gifts, notes, etc. Use a tag, a glassine bag and some candies and you'll be set with some darling and inexpensive little gifts.
Just look at that cuteness, would ya? Tip: No need to tie on the Tiny Tag. Just use the attached string to wind the tag around secured buttons. Easy peasy.
Who wouldn't love this little gift? Here I've tucked a length of cute fabric into one of my new glassine bags that I'll be carrying in the shop soon. A-dor-a-ble.
Or how about using the embellished clothespin clippie to mark your button jar colors. Oh, talk about craft room heaven. I would never want to leave.
Okay, it's almost time to start fixing supper folks so let's get the show on the road. Here's what ya get in the kit. Lots of glassine bags, a clear cello bag, colored and Manila Parcel Tags, 5 weathered stained clothespins, a vintage school book page, orange and white baker's twine, 2 snippets of fun fabrics, 2 vintage buttons, carnival tickets, a Tiny Tag, a velvet leaf and surely some more good stuff.
The kits are all packaged up and ready to go. Oh I love to make up these kits. It's like wrapping presents for all my best friends. They are cute peeps.
Everything you get in your package is totally re-giftable. You get the kit contents all packaged up in a reusable cello bag,a pretty blue bow and a snippet of fabric. Be sure to use all of these goodies. And isn't the little snippet of fabric so cute tied within the bow of the blue ribbon. I must remember to do that more often.
Ahhhh, I think I might just order up all the kits and hang them in my Artsy Studio....just to make me happy. Isn't it just fun to look at something pretty. I'll be listing the kits in just a bit. Thanks for stopping by today.
And on a different note, here's a little vintage goodness for you. I use tape dispensers like these vintage ones to package up my Etsy goodies. I absolutely love them. I lucked out and got each of these for $1 each at my local junk shop. However the average price is about $20 bucks online.....so if you see these old tape dispensers at a good price.....buy them all for me.....I mean snatch one up for yourself. :)
Goodnight friends. Oh wait, stay up late and you'll get to see my Papertrey Design Team challenge for September. :)

Mish ...... where do you buy your clothes pins?? I have a birthday party to do for my son and want to do a milk carton favor box and use a decorated clothes pin to hold it closed..... and of course decorate it with spiderman :) The only place I can find them here they are very cheap and I feel like they will not hold my cardstock closed. Thanks for any info you can pass along!!!
