I tried this out the other day when I needed a retirement card. I made the following card for my friend who is retiring at the end of the month. It's a "jar" of change to help with her retirement fund. She got a kick out of it!
|Create a Jar by combining the jar, from "Sealed With a Kiss"|
and the small Clear Pillow Box.
|Use our Brighton Beach White Ultra cardstock to make this card.|
If you decide to try this, here are a few tips to consider....
- Use BoatHouse Collection(TM) Brighton Beach White ULTRA cardstock to make this card. The extra firmness of the cardstock works great. The card stands beautifully. While any of our papers will work, I loved using the ULTRA the best!
- Cut out the center of the jar THEN punch out holes on the sides of the jar neck for the ribbon. This will allow you to reach the interior areas of the card.
- I created a template to show where to score your paper.
|Use this template to create the jar card. |
Gingham ribbon from Raisin Boat, too!
