TEACHING Tuesday - Feb 24th

Happy Shrove Tuesday :-) Are pancakes on your menu today? We had them for breakfast. Delicious! You can see my recipe on my cooking blog.

I wanted to show you an "Inspiration Jar" that I made. This is going to be one of the prizes this weekend at our scrapbook retreat.
I started with a square dollar store jar/with lid.

Measured the top and cut out pp to fit. I rounded the corners also.
I used sticky tape from Stampin' Up to adhere the top paper. (Thanks, Deanne! This tape is awesome!)

I decorated the top with some lettering. Added some BG stickers and a bit of Stickles.

Finished it off with some lace around the lid and another sticker on the jar.

I printed off a list of challenges and cut them into strips. Added them to the jar and can be pulled out whenever your mojo needs a jumpstart :-)

Note: You can look through our blog for challenge ideas.

Do you have an ispiriation jar? We'd love to see it!
