one more altered jar!

I was browsing for some ideas for an altered lunch-box and my journey brought me to this site called " some assembly required " ( ! I didnt find a lunch-box but i did find a challenge for beads! I cant resist a challenge so i had to give in!

I handpicked the green and clear beads out of a jar of multicolored beads so i could adhere them to the chipboard scallop! The bottom pic is a close-up of how i accented one of the jar handles!
This was a fun project to do! I hope you will browse on over and take a look at some awesome work!
Have a happy scrappy day!

I was honored to have had this set of cards and altered card box chosen as LOTD (layout of the day) at Scrapperie! The box is altered with American Crafts pattern paper and the cards are predominately made with American Crafts ( pattern paper and ribbon) the sentiments are from my stash and the flowers were purchased from The Scrapping Bug!
Scrapperie is hosting a Scrap-olympics! The challenges are fun and they run until August 31!

Your Lucky Day!!

More mix than match!!
I had these jars sitting around for quite awhile and today i felt like altering them!
I plan on using them eventually when i have my big open house sale in late November!

I plan on filling them with something and i need some trippy ideas! Can you envision anything in these? I would really appreciate any ideas and to show my appreciation i will send a small rak to someone at random! Looking forward to seeing some funky ideas!
I had to do a quick edit here: I got an email from a friend who said " Why dont you fill the jars with bright condoms"!! LMAO!! Thank you Dianne for making my day!
