a jar of jars


 i had SO much fun drawing and painting my little micro-jars,
but once i cut the page apart, i had a nice pile of micro-goodness... 
and all those illustrations were going to be hard to keep track of!
just like my chair collection, they needed a home.
so i grabbed two pieces of vellum and drew a jar on the top sheet…..





and then i sewed a tag on the front, 
along with some "lid lines" at the top.





then i clipped the two sheets together to keep them from moving around,
and sewed them together around the side and bottom edges.





once it was sewn, i trimmed the edges and filled my jar 
with all of those sweet little micro-jars!
these are my absolute favorite kind of projects…..
super easy, super functional, and super cute!


{supplies:  vellum paper, micron, scrapbook paper, 
colored pencils, pigment ink pad, 6B pencil, sewing machine}
