Now onto my project for  Day One.  I have been seeing alot of mason jars with little figures or lights in them. So, I decided to make a mason jar with a figure and lights for my mother to put on her little shelf outside her door at Senior Apartment complex.   I purchased a smooth mason jar from Michaels, small string of christmas white led lights from Dollar Store, Santa figurine from Michaels, Buffalo Snow from Michaels, 1 sheet of Silver foil paper and some miscellanous christmas stickers.  First, I stuffed the led lights in the bottom of the jar, and I dropped the the battery pack into the jar also making sure the side with the switch was up.  Then I put a couple of glue dots on the Santa figurine and stuck him on top of the battery pack in the jar.  Next I cut 2-5 x 4 1/2 squares from silver foil paper and glue them back to back. 

 I decorate the one side with a tree, sentiment and small present stickers.  I curled the paper and stuck it in to the jar so the decorated side shown behind santa in the jar.  Next, I added my snow until it covered the light wires and battery pack.  I traced the jar lid onto some red white candy stripe paper and cut it out.  I stuck the candy stripe circle into the mason jar ring.  Next, I used glue dots to attach ribbon around the ring, and then attach the bow.  I also put a poinsettia flower on the top of the lid and an ornament embellishment/stick on the ribbon.  I tightened the lid onto the jar and my little scene for my mom was complete.


My second little project is a gift card holder for my godson.  I purchased the Santa Card Accents and the Slider box from Pinecone Express Designs.  I assembled the box and  cut out the accent backgrounds.  I glued them to the slider card.  I fussy cut out Santa and pop dotted him onto the top of the box.   I stapled ribbon on to each section which pulls out.  Now, all I have to do is attach the gift card to one end and sign the other end. 

 I apologize for my photos being sideways, but I cant seem to get them to load the correct way.  Your next stop is Lisa F.  Thanks for stopping by and see you tomorrow!!
