~ Red Recycled Coffee Jar ~

I keep coffee jars for projects like these~I can't bring myself to throw them away!

I love this humongous heart from Waltzingmouse Stamps (Nordic Spring).

I looped some embroidery thread behind the heart and attached a backing so there won't be a raw side to view through the jar.

The unique sentiment is from Papertrey Ink's In the Meadow.

I used Viva's Inka Gold to add a bit of shine to the obvious red cover, and

 attached some loopies around the circle too.

The loops took some time, but otherwise, it's a pretty quick project to package a gift.

Hope you are having a wonderful day, thanks for stopping in. ;)
