Mason Jar Project and Winner of Let It Snow Blog Hop!

Hi All,Glad you stopped by. I've been busy getting ready for Christmas. I just finished making a Crocheted Infinity Scarf for my Daughter and I'm still working on a Crocheted Blanket for my Grand Daughters birthday in January. It's been a lot of work. Hope I get it done in time. Will share pictures of them later on.

  It has been SOOOO COLD here in Indiana. It was 0 last night. Going to be a little warmer tonight. I had to get out in it today and go to town. I'm telling you I hate getting out in Snow and Ice.  Oh, I miss Fall. It doesn't last long enough. 

I thought I would share a  few pictures of a project me and my two Grand Children did a couple of days ago.  

We decorated Mason Jars and put battery operated candles in them, so they could put them in their bedrooms.


My Grand Daughter Scarlett made the first one. She cut tissue paper in red,green and white. First paint a layer of Modge Podge,added the tissue paper. glued on white snowflakes that she punched out. She just used computer paper and then did another layer of the glue and sprinkled on white and green glitter. 

My Grandson Walker made the center one and decided to make a Ninja Turtle one by gluing on a napkin that he had. 

The one I did was made by using some pretty tissue paper that I had with White poinsettias and red berries on it and I added white glitter.

We love how they turned out and we had a great time making them. I am going to be on the hunt for some more pretty Tissue papers and napkins.

Here is a few more pictures that I took of them.

(With some of the lights off and Candles on the Inside)!

A picture of them with all of the lights off. Well the Tree lights are on.

This is a fun craft and super easy to do. If any of you decide to try it. I would love to see them. 

Supplies you will need-

Modge Podge
Tissue Paper or Napkins

Glitter (Optional)

These are great!!! Where did you get the pattern for the boxes?
Was it a cut from a Cricut Cartridge? I think this would be a great project for the girls to do for gifts to parents/family. Please let me know which Cartridge,If you would please.

 Congratulations to you Kathryn. Please e-mail me your mailing address and I'll get them out to you. My e-mail is cindymarshall63 at hotmail dot com

Also Kathryn, The Tissue Boxes are not from a Cricut Cartridge. I seen a video on youtube and can not remember which one. If you go on youtube, there is several video's on how to make them.
If you make some. please let me know. Would love to see them. 

Again Thanks for everyone for visiting my blog and just in case I don't do any more post for awhile.
Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas!!!     Cindy
