Close in Heart... part 2

Here are a few simple Valentine's day projects for you,
using my Close in Heart round graphic.

Small canning jar gift

Use printable (see below) with 2.5" round graphics.  Print and cut out, then layer between the flat part of the lid and the outer rim piece (see photos).  To give as a gift, fill with Hershey's hugs & kisses.

Pretty glass jar

I save pretty much every glass jar for projects such as this one!  Sand the original paint off the lid with fine grit sandpaper, then spray paint gold.  Depending on the size of the lid, you may need to adjust the size of your graphic.  For my jar, I resized the original 4" graphic down to about 3".  Cut out with decorative scissors.  Use double-sided tape to secure to lid.  Nice touch to cut out a bit of sheet music and place inside jar (it curls to stay in place).  Fill with something sweet & give to someone you love!

Sticker or envelope seal

Use printable with 2" round graphics.  Print and use 1.5" paper punch to cut out.  Use glue or tape to attach to the back of a sealed envelope, or use as sticker.

  7. Oh, how gorgeous!! Thank you for sharing these lovelies with us--and in two--er, I mean *three*!--different sizes for us!.: )

    An idea I've come across about affixing labels to jars or cans is to run off the sheet of the graphics on a full-size Avery-type label sheet, and then cut or punch out the printed labels. (They also come in a laser printer version.)

    Thank you again, Megan! xoxo
