An Altered Item

My husband asked me to make a coffee fund jar for his class his in right now for the military. I actually thought it was incredibly cute and thoughtful of him to think of me to make it. Because it was for a military class, I figured I should try to make it as manly as possible, which was very hard to do. I don't think any of them will even notice, but eh. I decided to enter it in Lexi's challenge #11 which was an altered object. I used an old pickle jar cleaned out several times to make sure it was clean. The stamps used come from Clear Dollar Stamps and are called The Grind.
CDS Stamps: The Grind
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Chocolate Chip
PaBoldper: Neenah Solar White, Old Olive, Sweet Pea dsp
Accessories: Labels 5 & Circle Nestabilities, So Saffron & Old Olive ribbon, silver pen, sponge, C-1 Copic, brown Sparkly Fluff, white liquid applique
Thanks for stopping by today!
