Welcome to the 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop!
You should have arrived from Theresa's blog. You can start the hop from the beginning at Lisa's blog.
Today's project was a true labor of love. I've been saving pickle jars for well over a year with the intention of making them into a craft project. What I didn't really count on was having to get the pickle smell out of a pickle jar before using them. It was quite the adventure with a lot of trial, error and a curse word or two thrown in just because I could, but finally they were pickle smell free! I repurposed my pickle jars into homemade dog treat jars!! At the time I took these pictures, I hadn't made my dog treats yet. I filled one of the jars with store bought treats and left the rest of the jars empty. I ended up with 14 of these! Good thing I know a lot of dog owners.
I used Create A Critter 2 to create my holiday dog. He's cut at 3.5 inches, I hid the face cuts and used PK dog faces stamp.
I used paw print ribbon to wrap around the lid...mostly to hide the expiration date of the pickles. LOL
I heat embossed the lid with a stamp I got in the $1 bin at Michaels. The dog bone is also from Create A Critter 2.
Up next is Jillian!
See you tomorrow with another new Holiday 2012 project! Have an awesome day.
