Alter It Challenge...

We must not allow other people's limited perceptions to define us. -Virginia Satir

This week's Blogger's Challenge was to *Alter It.* I thought I would show you what I recently did to liven up my button storage...

A friend who is lucky enough to live near an Ikea was sweet enough to grab me some really Amazing little mini candy jars, they have a flat bottom and a flat spot on the side so you can tip them a little like an Old Fashioned Candy Jar. I participated in a PTI Button Share and got a little of a Lot of colors (I can already tell I will need a Lot more, even though I don't use them much...LOL!!!) and I wanted to keep them seperate and labeled by color.
I made these pretty simple so I can still easily open the jar and get to the goodies...I just punched a scallop circle out of Kraft, then printed the colors on White CS and punched each one out. I used an ink color that was Close to the PTI color...I only have Spring Moss so far, must workon getting more!!! The I tied a little piece of ribbon (again, just tried to get close to the PTI color) to the top of the tag and then adhered them to the lids with Glue Dots.

As soon as I get my last book case set up I will have these lined up all pretty on a shelf of their own, until then they are stacked in a tiny space I have free on a shelf by my desk...I MUST get my office in order...SOON!!!

Thanks for stopping by!!
