- I don't have lots of room. I was only going to get 1 jar, maybe 2, and just deal.
- She gets her clothespins at Dollar Tree dollar store. I have one of those within walking distance - if I wanted to cross a VERY busy road.
- I thought 60 clothespins was going to be enough for all my new ribbon and the stuff I already had. With some left over. Yeah right.
- I checked 2 Walmarts (where she said she got the penny candy jars) and they both were out. So I grabbed a "cracker" jar instead.
When I got home, I measured the lid with my Coluzzle circle pattern and cut a piece of Autumn Leaves adhesive mat pack. **tangent: I love this stuff. Cut it and peel the backing off. No need to fight with tape dispensers. I think I have to get some more when I go to Target next.
I wrapped some Celery 1/4" grosgrain that I had before my share came in around the edge of the lid and secured it with Tacky Tape.
The jar itself is decorated with Bo Bunny rub-ons. Honestly, these were a pain in the patootie to work with... probably because of the way I was working with them. I was using the whole sheet instead of cutting out what I wanted.
So here's the finished project with 60 clothespins of ribbon in it.
