As a long-time paper crafter and scrapbooker, I have a 3-ring binder of various shape plastic templates. One of the circle templates was the perfect size, so I drew a pencil circle on the back of the stitched design and cut it out, added a circle of high loft quilt batting, and glued that to a cardboard circle. Then I glued all of that down to the jar lid, with the excess fabric glued down around the edge. Last, I added sparkly ribbon around the side of the jar lid to hide the raw edge of the fabric. These photos don't do justice to how pretty this looks in person (blame the photographer--me!)
For right now I 'borrowed' my DH's bag of almond M&M's. I think this would look great on a shelf or table with red/white peppermints or holiday color M&M's in it. Thanks so much to Dyan from Kustom Krafts for this free project through her Yahoo group! Here's another photo of the finished project.
Needless to say, Oreo Cookie is now banned from my stitching area when I'm beading!
