Lavender Jars

I always have an abundance of lavender buds on hand for sachets and such.  I've always stored it in a ziploc bag.  Not very exciting.  This morning I decided to make this lavender bottle and jars:
The bottle is an old lemonade one.  I used this pretty image from the Graphics Fairy on the front.  I printed it onto label paper (ssssshhhhh...don't tell UPS but I used some of their label paper!) and simply stuck it on the front of the bottle. 
Then I draped some ribbon around the neck and secured it with a button.
For the mason jars, I printed out two different lavender images, also from the Graphics Fairy.  They kind of look similar but they are two different images.
I tucked the cards into each jar and added the buds - leaving enough room to enjoy the image and still be able to get the tops back on.

Now I have a pretty new way to store my lavender buds!

Very, very cute :-) and I bet they smell lovely too!

This is a lovely way to store your lavender, much nicer than baggies!

I have one of those tall lemonade bottles, too. I just love the top. I have no idea what I'm going to do with mine, but I washed it out and it's waiting. Lavendar was a good idea.
