So what does this have to do with my photography? Absolutely nothing. But I wanted to share what I made and couldn’t do it on facebook for fear of spoiling the surprise. So here it is. The best part about these: they were very reasonably priced to make. And I love them. If they don’t want them, I’ll happily keep them. I know that filling them with soap, they are likely to get messy and dirty and in need of revamping next year but that’s a risk I’m willing to take.
Peel and stick beadwork and flower. Easy.
These are all actually the same size, though it’s hard to tell from my pictures.
Mason jars can be purchased at Rural King year-round or individually at Hobby Lobby-which is where I got these this weekend for 50% off. I already had all the ribbon you see in the photos so I just purchased the flowers and the beading from the scrapbook aisle in Hobby Lobby. The soap and pump came from a local grocery store. I picked a tall bottle of Ivory soap to make sure the pumps were long enough (and I did end up having to cut them) and then just poured the soap from the original bottle into the jar. Since I had my dear hubby do the hole drilling for the soap pump, these were super simple… The monogramming is just letters printed on a transparency through my printer. I can’t find the original tutorial to link to, but I found it on pinterest. The original author said it needed to be a laser jet printer so the ink didn’t dissolve. I just coated my transparency with a clear spray sealer before placing it inside the jar. Think I will check them before Christmas just to make sure the ink is still on the transparency though.
This sweet gal is my Class of 2012 Senior Rep. We were shooting in over 100 degree heat with almost 90% humidity and this was at 7pm. It. Was. MISERABLE. She never once complained and toughed it out probably better than I did. Now we have the most awesome senior photos to show for it. Seriously, I want to hang these on my wall.
