My Sister's Gift

Here's to hoping she doesn't read this in the next 12 or so hours...

Hope you are all having a great Christmas week.  I have been more than busy getting gifts finished up because I am always last minute like that.  

One thing I wanted to get for my baby sister were these jars I found at Wal-Mart.


I love everything about them!  I love how simple they are, the silver tops and best of all I love their price!! I bought all 3 for $15.  I have some just like it in my kitchen that I use as cookie and snack jars.  I also knew that I could cute them up a bit with my Silhouette Machine!!











I started by using some White Silhouette Vinyl to cut these super cute House of 3 Artisan Labels.  I measured each jar and sized the labels using the software to fit each jar.  After the machine cut them out I attached them to each jar!




Next I used some Black Silhouette Vinyl for my numbers. I sized each number to fit each label and cut them out.  I used the same font I used on my Blessings Photo Blocks which is Adobe Caslon Pro.

After the Silhouette Machine cut them out I peeled them and attached them to the labels.





Pretty simple, right?  But I think it adds so much to them and I love them!

I also used my Silhouette Machine to make her some photo blocks of my new baby niece.  I love how they turned out!





Don't you love the Red Silhouette Vinyl on the blue?  If you want the full tutorial on those click HERE!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you all have a great Christmas Eve and Christmas.

Don't forget to check out the Silhouette Machine and see all great things this baby does!  You will not be disappointed!!

I love the jars too, I have painted on them in the past and one day will put them on my blog to share. I found mine at Cost Plus. I would love to get one of those Silhouette machines. One day.
