Sizzix Tutorial | Homemade With Love Paper Mason Jars by Leica Forrest

Hello everyone! Leica here to show you how much fun you can have with Mason Jars.

This die Sizzix Bigz Die w/Bonus Textured Impressions Mason Jar is soooo much fun to play with. Dig out your vellum, it makes the coolest frosted jar. It also gives you a bit of forgiveness if you don't want to actually make the jar look filled with things. For example- Just decorate the jar, it will look great. If I want to "fill" the jar, I tend to use acetate because I can see through it better.

When cutting this Bigz die in the Big Shot all you need is a pair of Standard Cutting Pads. Make a sandwich with your die and paper between the cutting pads and roll them through your Sizzix Big Shot machine.

I like when the small details on my jar sparkle. I tend to cut out these accents out of Core'dinations Colorcore card stock. They have such an awesome Glitter collection. Because these details are finicky, I use Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Adhesive sheets- no mess!

The jar labels are stunning to work with. I used this die Sizzix Bigz Die w/Bonus Textured Impressions Jar Labels.  This set comes with amazing textured impressions. However, i didn't use them this time, only because I had different plans for the patterned paper.

Put on adhesive and line it up. There will be overhang.

Simply wrap the overhang around back.

The decorating part is my favourite! I love wrapping with Baker's Twine and floss. I like to wrap it a few times and tie a pretty bow.

For this jar, I made it a little more decorative by adding a doilie shape to the jar. I used this die Sizzix On the Edge Die - Distressed Doily. I positioned it halfway down.

I like to decorate in layers. Layer the flowers, adhere the sparkly ribbon and rhinestones.
