Altered Cashew Jar.....

My dad loves cashews. He bought this glass jar of cashews and when he was finished with the jar, he gave it to me so I could alter it.
I love the Porcelain Prints DS paper and the Wild Rose stamp set so I decided to make a noodle jar out of it. I figured that I could use the blue and green so it wouldn't be so girly and my dh wouldn't fuss about it being to pink LOL!
This is what I did with the top of the lid. I used my Creative Memories cutting system to make the circles.The inside of the lid was this reflective metal that was unattractive. I covered it with more paper and flowers. I was going to use some Primas but I couldn't find any that matched the colors I was using.

Ingredients: Stamp Sets-Wild Rose and Rough Edges Alphabet Paper-Porcelain Prints DS paper, Wild Wasabi, Blue Bayou and Whisper White Ink-Blue Bayou and Wild Wasabi Accessories-Blue Bayou and Wild Wasabi Double Stitched Ribbon, Glue Dots, Paper Snips and Creative Memories

Hope you all had a great weekend and happy stamping!
