Step 1 – Stamp Wee Mason Jar onto a sheet of Shrinky Dink plastic. "Fill" the jar with another image, such as hearts from "Live to Love" clear stamps by Rebecca Sower or "Art Saves" clear stamp.

Step 3 – Trim the image

Step 4 – Punch a hole in the top of the image

You may need to hold a pencil or craft knife in your other hand to guide the image flat and keep it from folding in on itself completely. It will be very hot, so use caution when shrinking your image.

Step 6 – When the image has shrunk, thread a jump ring though the hole and attach to a chain.

For our stamping club meetings, I used Ball Jars for our drinks. To identify each person's jar, I stamped Ball Jars onto Shrinky Dink, punched a small hole in the corner of the top, and wrote the members' names on the Shrinky Dink jars. After shrinking, I attached the little jars to the drink jars with plastic elastic cords. They pop off to wash the drink jars after each meeting. I've used the same idea for family reunions where we use Ball jars for our drinks. Fun and easy.

what a fab idea!! Cant wait to try!! Thanks for sharing!

Can you tell me what kind of ink you used? I tried and the ink lines bled. Thanks!
