Vintage Inspired Snow Scene Jars

I know, Christmas is long gone. I just didn't have time to post this in December and didn't want to sit on it until next year.

I got the idea from Pinterest and I just happened to have some vintage jars I picked up in a boutique on a recent trip to St. George, Utah.

I picked up the fake snow and trees at JoAnn's. I first cut the trees to the size I wanted and then hot glued them into the jars, added the snow, sprinkled some Dazzling Diamond glitter for added sparkle ..... and there, inside the jars - ( smile:D ) - mini winter scenes.

For the finishing touch I made the tags.

A few more snap shots...

From the back.

I used the following Stampin' Up! supplies for the tags which can be purchased Here along with other Stampin' Up! merchandise.

I had so much fun making them and wanted to make some for Christmas gifts except I didn't have any more vintage jars - I solved this dilemma by purchasing clear jars from JoAnn's then used Hammered Metal spray paint from Home Depot to paint the lids - It worked perfectly!

I also made one in a self sealing jar and thought it turned out pretty cute!

Then I packaged them for gift giving using a plain gift bags decorated with with the Merry Moments Simply Scrappin' kit #126911, Greetings of the Season Stamp Set #128033 (clear) #128030 (wood) and the Decorative Label Punch #120907.

I hope you enjoyed this post and are as ready for an early SPRING as I am - Thank you Punxsutawney Phil!
