My Succulent Jar

I always have a gift for our presenters at Inking Idaho on the Road and this was my attempt at a succulent garden for one of them. 
I remember a long time ago one of the Artisan Award winners posted a tutorial on the Stampin' Up! blog about how to do this and I always kind of kept that in the back of my mind.  I decided to give it a try and add a little banner on top.  I kinda think the banner is my favorite part. *Ü*

I started by painting and sanding lightly a Ball canning jar.  All the plants are glued to the inside lid piece not the outside when you unscrew it...see how much I know about my canning jar anatomy!

I used punches and framelits to create the pieces and didn't stamp on any of them.  I used a nail to create a hole for the two Wilton sucker sticks to be glued in for the banner.
I used the pointy flower from the Flower Fair Framelits, the leaves and the roundish flower are from the Bigz Bouquet Die and the rest are the Fun Flowers and Petite Petals punches.

I put it in a basket with a carved book for her 'C' so it was all kind of greenish in theme....hope she likes green!  LOL!!
Edited to Ad:  I found the tutorial, it was clear back on July 20th of last year on the SU! blog.

  1. Oh my gosh these are all FANTASTIC, Becky!!! That jar full of succulents is so CUTE!!!

  2. I love it too Becky! So cute! I'm going to have to figure out how you made these -- unless of course you're going to do a tutorial! Are you?

  3. Your garden turned out so cute Becky! I hope the recipient loved her gift!! I remember that project from the SU site as well, it was a great idea. Especially in my house ... not enough light so real plants aren't happy :)

  4. love the succulent jar! It is a combination of two things I love!

  5. I love, love, love the succulent jar. It's adorable, and you did such a nice job of creating the plants.
