Xyron Blog Hop Day 3 – Jar O’ Luck

miss kate cuttables banner

Hi and welcome to my first official post for Xyron! Today I am super excited to also be featuring Miss Kate Cuttables during our partnership blog hop week! I am no stranger to Miss Kate Cuttables and have loved doing projects with her clever and super cute cuts. Combining them with Xyron products was just icing on the cake. Below are the cuts I was “lucky” enough to play with for this project!  template

Who doesn’t like creating with mason jars? They are cheap, durable and a great starting point to any crafty creation.  With the help of my Silhouette, my Xyron 5 inch Creative Station and a little luck I was able to whip up this wee bit of the Irish decor!

Here are the Xyron products I used and this is how I did it (full supply list is located at the end of this post):

I first measured the opening of the mouth of the quart jar to plan out my cut sizes. Then using my Silhouette, I cut out all the components of the project.  I wanted each component to be double sided so I copied each cut and flipped it.

Once all cuts are removed from the mat, I began to load all the cuts into my Xyron 5 inch Creative Station and added once each set ran through.  I then began to build each cut by layering and placing together.

Using Xyron 3/8 inch High Tack Adhesive Dots, I layered the clouds onto the rainbow.

For the “gold” component of the project, I dusted each side I ran through the Xyron Creative Station with glitter, shook off the excess and repeated on the other side.  I then glued each glittered piece together and glued it to the pot.

In preparing the lid, I traced the inside of the lid on chipboard and cut out. I then ran it through my Xyron 5 inch Creative Station attached it to the bottom of the sealing cap and added more adhesive on the top of the chipboard using my Xyron 1/2 inch Mega Runner.

I then cut-to-fit some spare Styrofoam I had on hand. Using a green ink pad, I inked the Styrofoam and then attached the Styrofoam to the chipboard and ran more adhesive on the top of the Styrofoam (this will help the moss to blend and stick well to the Styrofoam) and then put together the lid and set aside.

After cutting down a toothpick and two wooden skewers, I hot glued them to the pot of gold and the rainbow and placed into the lid. Once the rainbow and pot of gold was in place I added the clovers with the adhesive backings created by the Xyron Creative Station. Adding the moss was the final touch before placing in the jar and closing it up. the moss stuck perfectly to the Mega Tape Runner adhesive applied to the Styrofoam.

In finishing the project I wrapped 5/8 inch ribbon around the lid securing it with Xyron 3/8 inch High Tack Adhesive Dots.

Little Girls are made of Rainbow & Unicorn Magic

Hi all and happy Friday!  I am super excited to share a fun and VERY easy banner I recently made for a birthday party of a close family friend.  The theme was what any six-year-old little girl would want, Rainbows and Unicorns!  I wish I could say I came up with this idea on my own, but with time not being my friend, I pulled inspiration from this amazing banner I found on PINTEREST! Thank goodness for Pinterest!

I actually dusted off my Circut to make the banner bases and letters with the Storybook cart, but the star of the show came from Miss Kate Cuttables over at the Silhouette Store.  I ended up un-grouping and filling each layer with color and then grouping the colored layers back together.  I set the cut to OUTLINE only and then ran through the printer and cut.

I punched holes at the top and secured with some American Craft ribbon, added some stickles, gems and a couple rainbow stickers and called it done in about an hour.

I love when time-pressed projects come together like this one did.  I happened to be over at my friend’s house this week and saw the banner hanging in her little girls room… now that made me smile and made me love my hobby  passion more!

Thanks for sharing a piece of “girls are made of rainbow and unicorn magic” pie with me.
