  1. Pull out the small glass jar (about pint size).  Cut a strip from desired print in the DCWV’s Mercury Glass stack at 2-1/2”x12”.  Wrap this around jar, securing it in place with double-sided super sticky tape. 
  2. Cut one section of the 12x12 Silver Shimmer Die Cut sheet (2” wide x 12” long) and wrap it around the jar.  Secure it on the backside of the jar with mini glue dots.
  3. Wrap a strip of 5/8” Natural Burlap ribbon around the center of the paper, tying it in a knot in the front.
  4. Using an electric die cutting machine, manual die cutting machine or paper punches, cut a 1-1/2” and 1” star from the silver and gold paper in DCWV’s Mercury Glass stack.
  5. Score both stars from top to bottom at each point. Bend the stars with a mountain fold at each point and a valley fold at the other score lines.
  6. Tie a piece of natural twine in a bow to the handle, making a knot at the end of each string.  Use glue dots to adhere the stars to the ends of the twine ties. 
  7. Add battery operated tea light to jar.
  • Try using glue dots to adhere the twine strings in place on the jar
