DT project for Gingerloft DT 'Anything but a card'

Challenge time again at Gingerloft and the theme is

Don't forget we are always sponsored by our very own Tami at the gingerloft store so why not play along to win a fab voucher to spend at the store.

Here is my project

An old chocolate spread jar!

Has a wrap  of xmas style paper around with thread wrapped around too, I have used a nesties dieshape under the digi, can't remember it's name tho'!

This gorgeous snowglobe digi is available at the store! I have coloured with pro markers and decoupaged one layer then added glitter glue!

I have inked the lid slightly and added a die cut circle with snowflake embossing on top

Jar 2 is full of shells so has a marine theme!

Nesties die cut to cut out the image, a water like piece of paper to wrap around and more thread

Mermaid image coloured in pro markers

Inside view

I will be entering these projects into the following challenges

Thanks for stopping by

I have lots of shells my husband and I have picked up over the years. What a great idea to display them. My jar is just plain. Got to get to work on that! Nice projects.

I am giddy over recycled projects and these are wonderful. The snowglobe is an excellent idea, but I love the marina container with the beautiful mermaid! Great ideas for these containers. :)
