With copies of Mason Jar Crafts officially being mailed out now, this week marks the start of a lot of promotions, giveaways, and features to help promote the book and get people exciting to start crafting with canning jars. I have been hard at work helping to plan a lot of special features across a variety of blogs. Along with that I have been putting together new content to share with everyone, specifically brand new DIYs that are inspired by Mason jars. These DIYs are meant to give everyone a feel for the 30 projects that I created in my book.
Today on Paper Pastries, Margaret invited me over to share this wrapping paper DIY that pays homage to the classic Ball label. Ball and Kerr are two logos that are still printed on Mason jars today. Both have that timeless appeal and I wanted to let that part of the jar really shine. I carved my own custom stamp from a template (which I provide over on Paper Pastries) which will allow me to stamp a variety of materials over and over again. I would recommend simple kraft paper or masking paper (like I used in this example) for an easy option. And a few simple adornments, like washi tape and twine, are all you really need to complete this look.
