This cute little jar makes for a great treat gift. What a fun way to say thanks with a little jar filled with a special treat. I etched a design around the jar using etchall creme and to make it more special I colored it with silver rub-on wax to match the hardware.

To etch the jar I used etchall etching creme and a stick-on stencil from the Dollar Tree. The stencil wrapped perfectly around the width of the glass jar.
To prepare the glass surface for etching, I always clean it first with alcohol. This removes dirt and sticker residue.
I applied the stencil around the glass jar and then covered it above and below the stencil with plastic washi tape as an extra precaution against any etching creme going beyond the stencil.
etchall etching creme takes 15 minutes to work its magic. I set a timer for 7 minutes, and then move the creme around in case I missed any spots. For this project, I turned the jar upside down at this point and then set the timer for an additional 7 minutes.
Once the time has passed, I removed the creme and put it back into the jar. etchall etching creme is reusable. Then I “washed” the etching with a baby wipe, peeled off the stencil and tape, cleaned the glass again with alcohol, and finally buff the etching with a cloth.
Here is the jar with the etching and it could be finished at this point.
I chose to enhance the design with a rub on metallic wax in silver. Using a cotton swab to apply the creme and then I buffed the excess off with a cloth.
Here is a perfect little single serving treat in a specially etch jar ready for gifting.

I love the look of a decorated Christmas Tree. This year, my youngest daughter asked if we could make a lot of homemade ornaments for the tree and string popcorn. This ornament has the look of a quilt. I wanted to design an ornament that you could see into the middle and have it look different. To achieve this look, you will use scrapbooking paper that is two sided.

Using your personal cutting machine, set all red lines to fold and black lines to cut. Cut two of this design to create an ornament. [SVG file]
Cut out two of the designed SVG file on your personal cutting machine using paper that is different on front and back.
Fold in all the triangle shapes on each piece. If you want you can use one Square per fold to hold the triangles down or leave them so they add an additional dimension.

Fold all the long folds.
Attach the one flap that will make the piece 3D.
Now join the two pieces together using the flaps and Glue Dots.
Cut a length of the twine, fold it in half and tie a knot. Place a Glue Dot on each side of the knot and hid it in the corner of the ornament.
