MCT ~ What A Treat Wednesday

Good morning! Today is What A Treat Wednesday over at My Creative Time with Emma and the design team! I truly love these project days because it can be any type of treat holder or 3~D project.
For my project today, I made this little mason jar graduation gift for my BFF's daughter. I helped with some of the decorations for her party, click here to see those details. I have seen so many mason jars with money in them, I thought why not give this a try for something different to give the graduate her gift!
My sentiment is from the Cute Tag Sentiments on one of the circles form the Bunch of Fun Circle Dies. I then placed it on the Stitched Doily Die. I had some paper that looked like newspaper and  rolled some flowers using the Rolled Flower Dies, inked up just a bit. Added a few details with burlap and hemp. Made my tassel with some twine.
The cap was made using the Stitched Squares Inside and Out and the Stitched Belly Band Dies. The belly band fits perfectly around the neck of the mason jar. I rolled the money up to look like diplomas, the next time I do this I won't wrap them so tight.
Super fun project to give anyone for any occasion!

Materials Used:
Paper ~ Bazzill, PTI and SU
Ink ~ Archival and TH
burlap twine and Jute
