Today's tutorial was inspired by the Dreamweaver's Seashell Stencil. We'll also be putting a slight bend in the Dreamweaver Double Glitter Technique
shown in Wendy Jordan's video below by wrapping it around a recycled jar.
So let's get those Supplies together and try it out.
- Trim Double-Sided Adhesive sheet to height of stencil and circumference of jar at the bottom.
- Add natural soap to back of stencil and place on peeled back adhesive sheet just enough for the length of the stencil.
- Crumble a small amount of both Stampendous Color Fragments together and sprinkle over stencil. Move around with finger and press in with the protective sheet peeled back from the adhesive sheet.
In the photo above from left to right, you can see the original size Fragments
to size crushed for this project .
- Tap off excess for reuse if the adhesive strip required to go around the jar is longer than the stencil. Use the protective sheet removed earlier to cover the completed stencil before starting the repeat of step 3.
- Sprinkle Stampendous Crystal Micro Glitter over the stencil and press in with protective sheet.
- Turn over stencil and carefully peel back adhesive paper.
- If adhesive paper is longer than stencil repeat steps 3 through 6 until complete. Make sure to cover and tap excess away from previously stenciled areas so the exposed background will not be contaminated with loose Fragments or Micro Glitter.
- Sprinkle Stampendous Ice Blue Micro Glitter over the exposed adhesive and press in as done before on the shell shapes. Refer to Wendy's video at time 6:13 if you want to see how she did this step.
- Add the finished panel around the bottom of the jar only peeling back the protective cover a little at a time.
- Add Sticky tape around the top of the smooth side of the jar and sprinkle with Stampendous Ice Blue Micro Glitter. Brush off excess with a dry clean paintbrush.
- Add Zip-Dry Glue around the threads of the jar and quickly wrap Jute rope around it. Add a few wraps of twine and tie in a bow.
Variation: If the lid is still around why not use it as a memory jar from your recent trip. Just use more stencils or stamps to make a tag to go with the twine and jute. Glue this around the lid instead of the jar threads.
