Butterfly Button Jar

Today we welcome guest designer Jeanne Streiff.  Jeanne is sharing a fun idea for dressing up a simple jar.
Welcome Jeanne!

I keep my buttons in an assortment of jars by color. I started playing around today with one of my jars and I thought I’d show you what I came up with. Amazing what you can do with a little tissue, a strip of drawer liner and a pretty butterfly stamp.

I cut my flower parts (Sizzix Bigz 657116 3-D Wrapped Flower) with from plain white tissue paper. I cut four layers of each size and then colored them quickly with Touch Twin markers (YR24, Y35)

I assembled the flowers parts with Flower Soft glue.

I stacked and adhered the assembled layers together.

I stamped and colored the butterfly (655889 Hero Arts/ Sizzix Framelits Butterflies 3) with Touch Twin markers and cut it out with the matching Framelits Die. I added some Diamond Stickles for a little bling on the wings.  I added a band of white shelf liner around a jar and adhered the butterfly and flower to the band.

Thank you Jeanne for sharing with us today!  You can visit Jeanne's blog at for more great inspiration.
