Unity Friends with Flair

Hello Friends with Flair.  Just a quick post today showing these cute mason jars cut using a Sizzix Bigz die.  You can cut the large and small jars with lids and the side piece to make this into a treat box.  I cut each of the jars out of recycled cardboard (cereal boxes) and cardstock.
On the large jar I stamped with a script background stamp in distress ink and then stamped the flower from the Unity; Feel the Joy set in Versa Mark and white embossed.  I then used distress inks to ink up jar to look like one of those blue Ball jars and then stamped the sentiment in black ink.  I added a bit of lace under the jar lid.  I don't know if you can see it well in the picture but I added the embossed lines on the jar lid, they just cut flat, but I wanted to try to make them look like "real" lids.  On the smaller jar, I embossed the paper and inked and added a shear ribbon around jar.  These are super fun to make and I can't wait to try to figure out what I can fill them with.
Thanks for stopping by and feel free to give suggestions for filling these pretties up.
