Directions:

    • Cut a piece of double-sided craft foam approx. 4″ x 5.
    • Using the jar outline die, die-cut the jar shape into the lower section of the craft foam.
    • Cut a piece of the wood grain scrapbook paper approx. 4 1/2″ x 5 1/2″.  Die-cut the jar shape into the lower section of the scrapbook paper.
    • Cut a small piece of acetate to cover the opening of the jar.
    • Remove protective coating off the acetate.
    • Remove the protective liner off the top side of the adhesive craft foam.  Stick the acetate over the opening.
    • Line up and stick the scrapbook paper over the jar opening of the craft foam and acetate.
    • Center a round rectangle die over the jar and craft foam and die-cut using the Crossover II die cutting machine.

TIP...I like to do when working with small die-cut pieces, is to run the paper through the Xyron Sticker Maker before die-cutting. It makes all the pieces stickers and makes assembling a breeze.

  • Die-cut all the jar pieces and assemble them onto the front of the foam.
  • Cut a piece of heart scrapbook paper slightly larger than the opening.
  • Turn the foam over and fill the opening with heart shaker sprinkles. Make sure not to overfill. You need to leave enough room for the Sprinkles to shake.
  • Remove the protective coating from the back of the foam and place the heart paper over the opening.
  • Cut a large layer using the round rectangle dies and stick onto an off white cardstock base.
  • Adhere the die-cut foam layer onto the front of the card.
  • Randomly glue a few heart sprinkles to the front of the card.
