Jar of Love Tag

You’re going to “Feel the Love” when you make and give this beautiful tag from the Jar of Love Stamp Set.  It’s the perfect accessory to a beautifully wrapped gift celebrating a special occasion or someone special.  I used a variety of products I had on hand so substitute something similar in your stash or pick up a new goodie to treat yourself.

Start with a 3″ x 5 1/2″ rectangle of Crumb Cake Cardstock.  I snipped the top corners and punched a hole in the center to make the tag shape.  The blue base paper goes on next.  It’s a 3″ x 4″ rectangle of the blue wood paper from the Serene Scenery Paper Stack and is adhered about 1/4″ from the bottom of the tag  with tape runner.  The Tip Top Taupe Doily goes on next in the bottom left corner.  I find I’m using these new doilies all the time and have already had to order more!  I stamped the large jar on white cardstock and used the matching framelit to die cut it on the Big Shot.  It would also be easy to fussy cut it but I have enjoyed using the framelits for the flowers, jar lids, and lots of the other stamps that come with this set.

ALL pieces in this project were distressed by daubing Tip Top Taupe ink along the edges of each piece.

The jar was attached with Stampin’ Dimensionals and adhered to the tag.  I pulled out my retired  bird punch to punch 5 branches out of one of the Calypso Coral printed papers in the A Little Foxy Paper Stack.  I loved this combination of colors – it gave a cool summer look in the midst of a VERY HOT summer!  Be sure you turn the paper over to punch 2 of the branches so they will be going a different direction when you turn them back over.  It makes a prettier arrangement.   You could also use some of the long stemmed plants that come in the stamp and framelit sets.

Make your flower before adhering the branches so you can adjust the placement as needed.  Punch 3 flowers with the Pansy Punch using coordinating papers (A Little Foxy Cardstack) – I used the zig zag stripes pattern.  To get the crumpled flower look, lay the flowers on a paper towel and spritz with water.  Gently wad them up then spread them back out to dry.  Layer the flowers and adhere the layers to each other with glue dots.  Punch 2 smaller flowers for the center and adhere with glue dots.  Add a large pearl to the center of your flower.  Adhere the branches to the top of the jar with tape runner or glue pen, then attach the flower to the tag with a large glue dot.

To embellish your tag, add a small bow under the flower with 1/8″ Smokey Slate stitched ribbon.  Use the same ribbon across the top of the blue wood paper as an accent. Add Whisper White Mini Pom Pom Trim at the bottom of the blue wood paper (about 1/4″ from the bottom of the tag.

The sentiment is made easy with the Duet Banner punch and Thoughtul Banners Stamp Set.  Stamp the banner on white cardstock then add the sentiment on top.  Now use the Duet Banner Punch to punch out your banner and attach to the jar as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The final touch will top it all off.  Adhere a 3/4″ circle of patterned paper over the punched hole at the top of the tag.  Punch a hole through this circle.  Now run white pom pom trim and the gray stitched ribbon through the tag hole and tie with a length of silver cording.

There are lots of details on this tag that give it that extra oomph to show how much you care!  I hope you fall for this Jar of Love Tag and enjoy making it.  Leave a comment below if you’d like to see a video of this project.  I try to create videos for the most requested projects and post them to my YouTube Channel – Here Lynda Falconer.  If you have questions or need any supplies just click the links below.  I value my customers and would love to serve you if you don’t have a Stampin’ Up Demonstrator.
