Well Hello, March!! You’re a sight for sore eyes! I’m so happy to see that Spring is on the way – it means pops of colors, unabashed use of pastels and Easter Eggs and bunnies. Today I’m revealing a new Die of the Month and it’s a fun one. Say hello to the Amazing Paper Grace March 2021 Die of the Month – 3D Mini Vignette Floral Mason Jar. This is a fun set of dies and it features a cheery bouquet as well as lovely dimension and folds flat like all of the 3D Vignettes.
Inspiration for 3D Mini Vignette Floral Mason Jar
My love of Mason Jars was my inspiration for this die set. I designed it to have an aperture because I thought it would be lovely to see the stems through the jar. Can you imagine all of the things you can use to fill it up? There are three different dimensional flowers to put together. It’s a bit of a different take on the flowers because they are from a side perspective.
Today on the inspiration video, I’ll show you how to make a stand-up but fold flat Mason Jar filled with dimensional flowers. I’ll show how to layer the flowers and how the jar goes together as well.
I hope you liked the video – don’t forget, I have my own Youtube Channel – Be sure to Subscribe HERE.
Floral Mason Jar Samples
For my first jar sample, I decided to create a die-cut aperture in the jar but it’s just as easy to leave it solid. I cut it from an icy mint paper and touched it up with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink along the bottom to darken the edge and give it an ombre shading. The aperture is covered with clear acetate to close things in.
Added to the Die of the Month Set is a lovely filigree lace element to help gather a bouquet. There are holes for brads on each side. Once the lace is in place, it’s very easy to tuck all of your stems in and create a flat bouquet!!
As always, I love the effect of having a box or a basket that can be used as a favor. This is an easy venture because all you need to do is add one or two jars to bookend your box or basket. And as you can see, the filigree lace is a perfect adornment for the handle.
