weck statt ball (Moxie Fab)

We don't have Ball jars in Germany.  We have "Weck Gläser".  Consider yourself enlightened ;)

Whatever.  I love 'em just the same because they evoke a down-on-the-farm feeling reminiscent of days gone by.  My days gone by.  I remember stopping by a relative's farm and there was always something being "put up" in the kitchen.  I myself can handle marmelade and "Pflaumenmus" but that's the extent of it.  Oh, I can do chutney too...

There's a new challenge at Moxie Fab, "The Jars of Joy", and IMO that they truly are.  But since I don't have any mason jar product (yet) I had to take a different approach.  As in alcohol inks and acetate to give a blue glass feel to my tag.  Cuz I was totally inspired by this photo.

Get it?  Red/white, blue glass, touch of metal.  Shine.  Joy.

Found a template online for a pillow box.  Used Nook and Pantry PP, a doily, some lace and some twine and there you have the packaging for some tags I made as a hostess gift.

Thanks for visiting.
