Jars, jars, and more jars

I finally finished some jars I have been working on for a craft show. I wanted to share a few of my favorites.
I think all the images came from the Graphics Fairy. Her link is to the right. If you haven't been to her site, please go. I can't tell you how great her site is. It is loaded with beautiful vintage images.
I didn't even alter this image. It is so perfect just as it is.


This label is so hard to see on the jar, so here it is flat. It was a cigar box label. I think the above jars would be cute filled with candy or seasonal items, or would make nice gift boxes.

This was a brown jar from a second hand store. I covered it with glitter, then distressed the finish.

From the photo it was hard to see the bird ghosted behind the poem, so here is a better look at just the label. The image of the bird and the background are from the Graphics Fairy. Below is what the background looked like before Photoshop.

I would like to finish by thanking the Graphics Fairy for her site. Funny how my favorite jars are the ones using her images....
