A Penny for Your Thoughts: Use Distress Ink (Tea-Dye) to stamp the Mason jar image onto cardstock. Cut around image. Place jar image on top of a piece of wax paper and trace around the jar shape with a pen. Then use scissors to cut around the wax paper jar shape. Place the wax paper on top of the cardstock jar and machine sew around the edges, leaving the top edge open for inserting pennies later.

IMG_1829 Type text on plain paper and cut around the text to create a label. Use a gluestick to adhere the label to a piece of corrugated scrapbook paper (cut into a tag shape). Use a stiff stencil brush to lightly apply Distress Ink (Tea-Dye) to the tag. Warp string around the jar's neck and use it to attach the tag. Fill the wax paper pocket with a couple of pennies.

I love the jar o' stars - perfect!

so special ... in its simple roots

These are so cute; I love the stars! Who doesn't want a star jar! Love the idea of wishful thinking, for a kindhearted
sentiment and a token of reflection. Pennies and stars so evoke compassionate thoughts~

Wonderful!
