{r} jar

I saw this tutorial from pen n' paper flowers last month...
{her blog is amazing, if you are not already a follower you must go see}
 I just had to try it out for myself.


What you'll need:

an empty Starbucks jar (or jar of your choice)
letter stickers (got mine at michaels)
etching cream, 1 sheet of sticker paper,
and a brush or foam stick
{{if you don't want to use sticker paper, see how pen n' paper flowers used spray adheasive}}

I used a circle craft punch to cut a circle in my sticker paper
stuck that to my jar then stuck the letters inside
the pic on the right is with the etching cream dabbed on
you only leave the etching cream on for 60 seconds
then rinse off and ta.da!

It is the perfect addition to my new kitchen shelf

adorable! I heard that nail polish remover takes the date stamp off of the bottles. Be careful not to get it on the etching cream.
Great job, I am going to have to try this!
