Alice in Wonderland Notions Jar

**If you have a chance check me out at Knock-Off Decor!**

Don't you just love when an idea hits you completely out of the blue?  As I was making cole slaw for tonight's dinner, I spied the jar that the dressing came in.  I wasn't quite sure what I would do with it but I washed it out anyway.  Then it hit me:
I'm forever losing things in our craft room which is now doubling as my home office.  So I thought the jar would be perfect for storing my thread, spools, etc.  I found the Alice in Wonderland image and simply printed it out.  Then I hand-stamped the word notions.  Next, I distressed the edges and the front, and then mod podged it to the front of the jar.
Even the lid got the Alice touch!
Then I hot glued the lace to the top of the jar and added the button in the middle.  See how it holds all of my sewing notions so perfectly?  What's best is I had everything I needed for this sweet little jar!

Hi, already following your new blog. Please include me in drawing. I like the Alice jar - it would look cute with some Tim Holtz or 7 Gypsies Tissue tape around the lid.
