That's How Thursday-A Crafty Gift

Hello everyone! Happy Thursday! Hip Hop! Hip Hop!

Ok, so today is my LAST post as an Ippity Design Team Member! I will be playing along for the next few weeks til the new release, but this is my LAST official duty! (Haha...I said duty! LOL)
This isn't just a team, it is a close-knit family that I've grown very fond of...So after 3 months, it is going to really hurt to not be a part of this family anymore. Even though I still will be with them in the art that I draw, it still isn't the same. Not at all...So I am definitely going to miss each and every one of these gals so very much! They are my inspiration to keep my art going and seeing what they create with them!!!
ANYWAYS..Enough mushy mush!

So as my last post, I will be bringing you a fun tutorial recycling baby food jars!
{You don't have to have a baby to purchase 56 cent baby food jars, just purchase and clean out and create!
Just a littel FYI for this project}

Step by Step Instructions:

1. Make Box (8x3" with 1.5" sides, 2" with fencing)
2. Assemble box.
3. Make dividers for the inside of the box
4. Jars fit in the box

5. 6-11x.5" strips, the cut in 2" slices
6. Cut tops of white strips to a point for the fencing
7. Glue ribbon around box as part of the fence.
9. Use mini glue dots on each fence post and glue to box over
10. Decorate as you see fit.
(Flowers are handmade)
11. Decorate jars as well.
12. Add goodies to the jar and give to someone special!

ALSO, LEAVE A COMMENT ON THIS BLOG FOR YOUR CHANCE TO WIN

STRAIGHT FROM THE HEART

{to see who's won, be sure to stop by tomorrow, never know, it could be you!!!}

Ok, so that is my tutorial and a chance at a free stamp set, so now you gotta scoot cause you need to go see all the wonderful creations created for you by the dt's as part of Hip Hop Thursday!!!

So Scoot! Get out of here! Go now! Shoo! Get your booty on over to the Unity Blog for the beginning of the hop! I double dog dare you!

After you are done hippity hopping, stop on over to the Unity Forum on SCS for lots of chatter, prizes, anniversary fun, etc! Just a fantabulous time! I know I won't want to miss out on that action!!!

To the world, you are just one person, but to one person, you are the world.

Hugs all!
