Upcycle Brilliance by Pam Bray

 Hi!!! Happy Wednesday!!
It is Pam here today on the Craftwell Blog sharing with you my upcycled project!! 
I decided to give my cat "Gracie" an upcycled treat jar. 
He is so spoiled. 
YES... 
Gracie is a "boy", lol!!!
AND...
He has a story to tell about his name!!! 
 I began of course with his treat jar....
 Run strips of pattern paper through the Xyron Creative Station or use your favorite adhesive. 
 Wrap pattern paper that has adhesive applied to it along with borders around jar. 
 Stamp a Crazy Cat image on to water color paper. 
Color with distress markers. 
 Sandwich prepared colored image along with die and label dies between two "A" plates, "B" plate, metal shim and  platform using the Craftwell Cut N' Boss. 
 Add labels and prepared crazy cat to front of jar. 
Die cut borders and rosettes using two "A" plates and platform using Craftwell Cut N' Boss.
 Form rosettes; add large one to top of jar lid along with a metal knob. 
 Add smaller ones to front of snack jar.
Adhere small circles and brads to centers. 
 Wrap twine around jar lid ring with twine. 
Die cut label using watercolor paper using Craftwell Cut N' Boss, two "A"plates, "B"plate, metal shim and platform. 
Water color paper with distress markers, dry completely. 
Do stitch line work and pets name with the word "snack" with black pen. 
Tie to twine. 
Add twine bow.  
 I hope you have enjoyed my snack cat treat jar and try making a fun treat jar for your pet.
