The jars are becoming hard to find ( seems they have gone to clear glass ( double shame)) so when this one popped up at the thrift I gabbed it and knew it was destined to be something special. I combined the jar with my love of solder -art and came up with this sweet little jar to hold our toothbrushes and paste.
I silvered the threaded area on the jar and then added a sticker that I printed with an image from the Graphics Fairy. I printed the image onto frosted/clear label material so when it was smoothed onto the jar it looks for all the world like it was printed right there.
On the back side of the jar I put..
The coordinating little boy image... sweet huh???
So you ask.. where is the craft-fail? Well it seems that these labels are FAR from waterproof at least in the first few minutes after printing so when I first put the toothbrushes into the jar (patting myself on the back from such a cute project) they dripped on the images and everything stated to smudge .. sigh.. fail.
BUT!... I loved the project so much I peeled off the ruined stickers, printed out some more and put them back on and let it sit overnight and then sprayed it will clear-gloss topcoat.. very lightly then again and NOW the project is ready to stand up to being used in the bathroom!
So what do you think????
