Vintage Jar Caddy by Tracey Sabella

Hi everyone! It's Tracey back to share my newest project with you. I found these vintage style jars and unfinished wood caddy at my local craft store and knew they would be perfect to decorate with Donna's fabulous products. I've also included accents from the PhotoPlay Autumn Day Collection.

Tips and Techniques
The larger corner flower is one of my Wispy Burlap Flowers created with Donna's Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Burlap Texture Ribbon. A photo tutorial for this flower can be found HERE. **Please note - I've used the new Home and Hobby by 3L 1/8" Extreme Doube-Sided Tape instead of glue in the creation of the flower. There's nothing like Donna's Dodz™ XL to adhere the Bitty Blossom to the flower center and to adhere this larger flower to the caddy. The smaller blossoms and flourish are adhered with small DODZ™.

I cut the smaller flowers from PhotoPlay Autumn Day Plaid using Donna's Spellbinders Bitty Blossoms dies, and used one for the center of the burlap flower. The Spellbinders flourish is cut from the same paper.

To get this rich, shimmery color for the flowers, I mixed together Donna's Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® brown, pink and gold Pigment Powders into her Clearsnap®/Colorbox® Pralines & Cream Smooch Spritz, then brushed the mixture across the flowers and flourish.

I used both types of lace from Donna's Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Lace Ribbons set. The looped lace runs across the top of the caddy and the bow is tied with the crochet lace. I had some extra pigment powder mixture on my craft mat, so brushed the ribbons lightly with this color. 

I had so much fun creating this Vintage Jar Caddy
to fill with some of my scrapbooking trinkets.

I hope you've been inspired to create a Girlie Grunge decor project for your studio or home.
