Vellum: Memory Jar + GIVEAWAY

Scroll down to end of this post to see how you could win a box filled 
with our new VELLUM AND SEQUINS...
I always have great intentions when it comes to keeping up with memories,
milestones and highlights throughout the year...this memory jar allows family
members to jot down their own memory and then add it to the jar!

 I've used a steel rule jar die by Top Dog Dies, but you can also find templates
online or use a cutting file :)  There are also smaller versions of the jar out there too
in case you need a smaller cut for a smaller jar.

I started by folding the 12X12 Lily White Sprinkles Vellum in half and then
die-cutting.  I made an effort to match up the dots (front to back) before cutting.
You could also use a plain sheet of cardstock for the backing.  
I machine-stitched around the sides of the jar with a zig-zag stitch, leaving an
opening at the top.  Next, I die-cut the lid  from silver glitter paper.

The lid and 'label' are a part of the accessory set that goes with the jar die.  
I die-cut the green gingham paper and then glued on some trim by Petaloo.
I used a scalloped heart die and then layered on a sticker and hand-punched
vellum flowers...I used two different punches to create the fun layering of the flowers.


With some Petaloo ribbon, I created a boutique style bow for the top of the
jar...and I love the little detail of the matching butterfly sticker :)


Next, I took a few of sheets of regular copy paper and cut into 4.25" X 2" strips.
I tucked the strips into the vellum jar pocket...you can also tuck in a pen to make
things even more handy!  Some of the most precious things
are hand-written notes and memories that are put into someone's own words.
Collect all of the strips at the end of the year and place them into your scrapbook
or create pages around the different memories :)

Thank you for stopping by today!

This is my favorite thing about Doodlebug Designs--you already have amazing products that I've loved for years, but without your incredible DT, I don't know that I'd get as much out of my Doodlebug products. I come here for a daily dose of inspiration and I never come away disappointed but rather always with a new and clever idea that leaves me wanting to try it asap!!! This is priceless. Thank you to your incredible Design Team for all they do! It is very appreciated. :)
