Say hello to Rachel

Rachel is a photographer by day and demon scrapper by night! We love Rachels fab approach to scrapbooking and this lil altered project is so very simple to make. I don't have a cat but because of this jar, I think I want one now!

Cat Treat Jar by Rachel
Spice Jar (rajtan - Ikea)
Calico Prints patterned paper – Doodlebug
Bon bon and Beetle black inkpads – Doodlebug
Pretty Kitty Stickers – Doodlebug
Mini stationary tag
Scrapbook colours Blush – Making Memories
Sticky Ribbon
Brown pen
Lay a flat side of the jar down on the back of the patterned paper and draw around it twice and cut out, ink the edges with brown ink first and then just a touch of black to edge and stick to the flat faces of the jar. Attach a length of the sticky ribbon all the way around the jar. Write the word ‘treats’ and cut this as well as a small circle from some pink bazzill. Ink the edges of both these pieces and then layer with stickers on the two patterned paper panels using foam pads and doodling in places to add dimension.
Sponge some of the blush paint onto the raised parts of the lid of the jar and stamp this onto the back of your patterned paper. Once dry use this as a guide to cut the ring and inner circle to cover the lid. Ink the edges as before and layer onto lid with stickers.
Paint a tiny stationary tag with the blush paint, ink the edges and use stickers and pen to create your desired label.
….fill with cat treats!.... now where’s that cat?....
