Bath Salts Jar for a friend from Creative Paperclay!!

Folks I'm just so excited about my project for today I can hardly contain myself!!!!!!! It really turned out so amazing.  I started out with a plain old jar and lid:

I then covered both the jar and lid with paperclay. It really looked plain but that's when I started workin' it :

This was just too plain for me so I took the lid and made a rose out of the paperclay and put in the center. I then fashioned rosebuds and placed around the large rose and added a few leaves for good measure.


Now things got to be a lot of fun.  I started out by painting my rose and buds a light pink and then painted the jar the same pink. I painted my leaves green and highlighted the rose and buds with glitter. I also glittered around the edge of the lid. Lid now finished! I cut out a victorian picture and Modge Podged it to the jar. I then sealed the jar and glued off white rick-rack around the picture and added a little butterfly to the side of the picture. 

I think it all turned out just beautifully don't you? Now to just fill the jar with some lovely bath salts and give to a good friend!

Yes, I do think it turned out just beautifully. I especially like how you did the roses on the lid.

I bought myself some PaperClay, but still have to break open the pack.

Your projects are definitely whetting my appetite.
