Up-Cycle a Jar To Create a Snowy Winter Scene!

Hi Echo Park Paper Fans!  Holly here from Ribbons & Glue sharing a Winter Snow Jar made with the Hello Winter collection. Sometimes, I’m amazed at what inspires me to create a project.  Like cleaning out an empty sauce jar inspired the idea of a jar filled with paper trees and fake snow.  I guess there’s always a Silver Lining in doing the dishes.  This jar of fake snow is about all I will be seeing too for snow since I live in Southern Nevada where it rarely snows.

To make the Winter Snow Jar, I used my Silhouette and an Echo Park Pine Tree cut file to cut out two different sized trees , three times each.  After the trees were cut out, I scored them down the middle and adhered three trees together to make one dimensional tree.

After the trees were assembled, I  hot glued a dowel inside each tree and ink around the edges.

To assemble the Snow Jar, hot glue the trees in to the bottom of the jar, add fake snow inside, wrap a white ribbon around the top and embellish the jar with a decorative brad and Alpha sticker.
