I decided to make a little "Happy" (a small gift to make someone smile) last night for my mom. She has kept my daughter during the day since she was 8 weeks old. Pre-K starts next week and we are all sad. I am sad to see my baby grow up and that I am handing her over to people I don't trust as much as my mom. Momma is sad because she has been with her almost constantly since she was born ... We are all in for a big adjustment.
Anyway on to the project. My Momma is a button fanatic! She has buttons stored in jars, bags, cases, just about everywhere you can imagine. She has made hundreds of button bracelets, covered the back of a shirt with buttons and added them to anything that would stay still long enough for her to sew them on. I decided that making her a button jar might brighten her day a little bit...
1 latch closure jar (I found these at the dollar tree recently)
Graphics from *The Graphics Fairy* ( Click Here )... if you haven't been to this site you must go she has wonderful artwork...
I cut out the graphics (I was super lucky that it was a great size to use on the top of the jar and there were some stripes and a smaller graphic to use too.)
I mod podged the graphics on the jar. TIP: Alcohol removes the excess mod podge on the jar. I just used several of the small alcohol pads to wipe around the graphics after applying them.
Here is how it turned out. I hope it serves its purpose as a "happy" and brightens her day
