12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop - Day 9

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.

 It's day 9 of 12 days of fabulous Holiday projects!

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

Overall I used three different PK doggie face stamps.  I used a white gel pen on the eyes and a red gel pen on the tongue.  

Personally, I like this doggie face stamp the best!  

 A paw print border punch was used on the red cardstock.

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.
