“Thankful” for our Expressions Thinlits Dies

Each season, I enjoy making a little something for the teachers and office staff at the kids’ school.  I’ve been looking at the flat of mason jars I’ve had for a year and finally decided to make something with them.


To decorate this mason jar, I first took a 6 x 12″ of Sweater Weather Designer Series Paper (132184) and wrapped it around the jar and adhered the ends with Sticky Strip (104294).  The paper didn’t quite go all the way around the jar, so that’s when I decided to add the pumpkin.  It covered the gap perfectly.


I used the Ovals Collection Framelit Dies (129381) to cut the Pumpkin Pie card stock (105117) to create the pumpkin.  For the stem, I took the Ticket Duo punch (126883) and punched a large ticket from Old Olive card stock (100702).  To give it more of a stem look, I tore the top of the ticket and adhered it to the pumpkin.  I cut a piece of our 1 1/4″ Burlap Ribbon (132140) and then cut out the “thankful” from our Expressions Thinlit Dies (132171) using Early Espresso card stock (119686) and adhered it to the burlap ribbon using our Tombow Multi-Purpose Adhesive (110755).


I wrapped a piece of the 1 1/4″ Burlap Ribbon (132140) around the mouth of the jar and adhered it with Sticky Strip (104294).  I then wrapped a piece of our 1/4″ Early Espresso Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon (126871) around the burlap.  I punched a circle using Old Olive card stock (100702) and the 1 1/4″ Circle Punch (119861).  I added a Naturals Designer Button (127554) which is threaded using Linen Thread (104199) and tied in a bow.

Here’s a look at the other greetings that come with this collection of Expressions Thinlits Die.  You can use it for a few more holidays!


You can add any candy you’d like to this jar, I added mini bags of M&M’s.  I really enjoyed creating this give for some special people and seeing how grateful they are to receive them as well!

I hope you create a little something for the special people in your life for those you are thankful for!  Order any of these items by clicking the button below at my online store!
