Cutting the Vinyl with a Cricut Cutting Machine
For this poroject, I used my Cricut Explore but any Cricut Machine that can be connected to the computer can cut this file out of vinyl.
In Cricut Design Space you can create your own design or you are welcome to use mine. Simply click here to be taken to Cricut Design Space.
Follow the prompts in Cricut Design Space and click “Make It” to send the images to the Cricut machine to cut.
After the design is cut, remove the vinyl from the cutting mat and begin weeding or removing the negative of the design we don’t need.
Applying the Vinyl to the Glass Jar
The easiest way to apply the design to the glass jar is to use transfer tape. Transfer tape is a carrier sheet for the vinyl sticker so it doesn’t get stretched while moving it to the project.
Remove the paper backing of the transfer tape and lay it over the top of the vinyl stencil. Using a scraper tool, rub over the entire design to make sure the transfer tape is stuck nicely to the vinyl.
Carefully peel up the vinyl stencil with the transfer tape, removing it from the vinyl backing sheet.
I prefer to eyeball the placement on my project, but if you would like you can measure and mark with a pencil to get the perfect placement.
Then peel the transfer tape away from the project, leaving the vinyl design stuck to the glass jar.
Filling the Jar
Filling the jar is where you can get creative. This jar makes a great money jar, candy jar or cookie jar!
To fill our jar, we got a couple of bags of chocolate and then 40 singles to fill the rest of the jar. My original thought was to roll all of the singles up with ribbon and make it cute. But my husband made the good point that would take up less room making the jar not look as full. So we just crinkled up the bills instead and put them in.
Here is a close up of Our Stache Jar. filled with it’s goodies.
Tie some rope or ribbon around the top of the jar and you have a great unique wedding gift idea that the bride and groom will love!
