Instructions:
Candle Jar
1. Peel as much of the label off the candle jar as possible.

3. Cut the medium green paper slightly larger than the label as a mat for the label, and then cut an even larger sage green paper mat for the medium green mat.
4. Cut the medium green paper slightly larger than the label as a mat for the label, and then cut an even larger sage green paper mat for the medium green mat.
5. Apply the medium green mat, using the same process as above.
6. Apply the pink/white label on top of the medium green mat and brush a light coat of Liquid Laminate over it. Let dry.
7. Use Gem-Tac to glue the green trim around the neck of the jar, and then apply the pink petal trim on top of the green trim.
8. Make a six loop bow with the dark green ribbon, then fasten the center with a piece of wire. Glue the bow to the top of the jar lid with Gem-Tac.
9. Clip the shanks from the buttons. Glue the four 5/8” buttons on the jar lable. Glue the ¾” button at the center of the bow.
10.

Clip individual petals from the trim and glue randomly on the jar lid.

Gift Bag and Tag
1. Cut the pink/white paper to fit the front of the gift bag and the bottom half of the gift tag. Cut a 2” strip of sage green paper for the top of the bag and a piece for the top of the gift tag.
2. Apply Gem-Tac to the bag and the tag, and then apply the paper to each. Let dry.
3. Apply sage green trim, then pink petal trim to the bag and tag.
4. Print the saying “For You” on white paper either using a computer and printer, or hand write the saying with the green market. The label should be approximately ¾” X 1 ¾”. When dry, glue to the tag with Gem-Tac.
5. Tie the tag onto the bag with the dark green ribbon and glue the remaining button to the center of the bow with Gem-Tac.
