There's No Teacher I Love Smore Than You (& Winner Announcement)

Hello everyone!
It's Tammy here, and I am happy to share with you a little gift I put together for my son to give to his teacher that incorporates some Cherry Cupcake Trendy Twine

 I have this crazy obsession with mason jars and giving gifts in them. I love to go to old Antique Shops and find old bottles especially old Mason jars. I get more excited if I find old Aqua ones. Now those I keep selfishly! Today I have a brand new jar that I have cleaned out, but I did shabby it up a bit. 

I spray painted the top and set to dry. Once dry, I used my sanding block to give it a little bit of a rustic/shabby feel. I then hit it with some spray adhesive and added some chunky glitter.  I forgot to get a photo of the top, but I added some paper from Fleurette Bloom's Hearts A Flutter Paper Pack. I added the contents inside to make Smores and closed the lid lastly wrapping the lid with some Cherry Cupcake Trendy Twine!

For the jar, I took some red seam binding and wrapped it around the jar and tied a fluffy bow adding a bright pink button in the middle laced with Cherry Cupcake Trendy Twine for an embellishing touch.

I added a white paper doily to the center as a backdrop for my sentiment that was computer generated and printed out on papers also from Fleurette Bloom's Hearts A Flutter Paper Pack. For a little extra fun touch, I added more Cherry Cupcake Trendy Twine around the sentiment.
