Plan Your Layout
Since “Oliver and Humphrey” (our dogs) is a whole lot of text to fit onto my cute little jar, I went with a simple “TREATS” for the demo shown in this post, but this would be also cute with pet names, nicknames, or other designs. For added embellishments, I bought long stickers for a wrap-around accent as well as little circles to create paw prints, all in similar gold metallic finishes to coordinate with my letters.
Ensure that your jar is clean and dry, then apply your stickers to create your design. If you are applying letters in a straight line, a strip of masking tape can be helpful for alignment. If your jar isn’t round, applying from the middle letter outwards is an easy way to centre most text. If you are adding wrap-around embellishments, take care to ensure that any patterns line-up at the overlap points and try to position the overlap in an inconspicuous spot.
Done! It’s really that simple!
Enjoy using your pretty new treat jar, gift it to a friend, or make a whole batch of custom jars for holiday presents.
Perfect! To make an extra special present, consider filling it with tasty treats or other goodies. If you are using pre-baked homemade treats, remember that they lack the preservatives of commercial treats will have a much shorter shelf life. Fill the jar when you’re ready to gift or mix things up by gifting the dry ingredients to a favourite treat recipe. Fun!
