Altered Change Jar

Well this my last month as a DT member at A Walk Down Memory Lane where I have been for a year. Well actually we all got to be there for an extra month while they get the next DT ready. So this is my first project for my last month there. Today's project is my tip/technique for using rub-ons. I know they work well on paper for your cards and layouts....but have you ever tried to use them on glass/plastic? Today I used them on a plastic jar to jazz up my change jar.

On the jar I used rub-ons from Basic Grey Wander collection. I thought the map would be good on my jar for my summer trip. I also created the fun tag to tie around the top.

Here is a closer picture of the tag. On this tag I also used paper from the Wander collection. I grabbed my Xyron Design Runner and the travel disc to pick out a saying for the tag. The design runner worker GREAT on the piece of cork!

Supplies used on this project: Xyron adhesive, design runner; Basic Grey Wander paper, rub-ons, brad & bling; Maya Road clock; Quick Cutz cork.

Now I just need to fill this jar up :) Have a fabulous day!
