There are so many ways to decorate these jars.  Stamp them, emboss them, or cover them with scrapbook paper.  No need for favor boxes?  No probs, just use the jar portion for cards, layouts or string a bunch together for a cute banner.

 

How to make Baby Food Jar Favor Boxes

Supplies:

STEP 1:  Color jars with Copic Markers and edge with Distress Ink.  You can find a helpful Jar Coloring Video Tutorial HERE.

STEP 2:  Cut a piece of Frosted film and place it over your Copic colored jar.  Trim away excess film.

 STEP 3:  Add strips of Washi tape to serve as labels.  I created my “Awesome Sauce” Label with Eileen’s Ornamental Label Framelits set from the Cherished Collection.

 STEP 4:  The Baby Food Jar die also cuts a cute little spoon.  Wrap die cut spoon with foil tape and use a stylus to add elemental detailing.  Use a Micron or other permanent black ink pen to accentuate the detailing.

Stick on an “Awesome” label and any other embellishments you like.  I added rhinestone stars for an extra dash of Awesome.

I filled mine with star confetti because stars are the secret ingredient in “Awesome Sauce”.  Did you know that?  Well now you do :)
