Gracie's Treat Jar!

I recently made my cat "Gracie" an upcycled treat jar and thought I would enter it in to the Simon Says Stamps Challenge. 
He is so spoiled. 
Gracie is a "boy", lol!!!
He has a story to tell about his name!!!

 I began of course with his treat jar....

Run strips of pattern paper through the Xyron Creative Station or use your favorite adhesive.

Wrap pattern paper that has adhesive applied to it along with borders around jar.

Stamp a Crazy Cat image on to water color paper. 
Color with distress markers.

Die cut images out.

 Add labels and prepared crazy cat to front of jar.

Die cut borders and rosettes.

 Form rosettes; add large one to top of jar lid along with a metal knob.

 Add smaller ones to front of snack jar.
Adhere small circles and brads to centers.

Wrap twine around jar lid ring with twine. 
Die cut label using watercolor paper.
Water color paper with distress markers, dry completely. 
Do stitch line work and pets name with the word "snack" with black pen. 
Tie to twine. 
Add twine bow.

I hope you have enjoyed my snack cat treat jar and try making a fun treat jar for your pet.

  1. Hi, Pam. I love this project! The color choices on the papers are perfect. I especially like the rosettes! I have never thought to do this type of project, but now I must get out my mason jars and get to work! Thank you for sharing.

  2. Pam I love so much this project! Colorful and so beautiful! Your ability to mix stamps and patterned papers is fantastic! Thanks for joining us this week on Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog! Barbara
