altered canning jar band ornaments


 If you can or make jelly/jams, chances are you have a stash of canning jar bands lying about.  That's how I first came to make this type of ornament, years ago--a pile of slightly corroded canning jar bands with a really fun altered looking patina needed a new job!
 So simple--just trace the circle and cut an Altered Pages collage image to fit inside.  If you print on heavy cardstock, you can add the image as-is, but if you print on a lighter weight paper, or fussy cut an image, you may need to add a piece of cardstock behind.

 Add a little lace around the edges, and a loop at the top for hanging, and you're finished!   Hang on the tree, decorate packages, or even use as tags.

You can get rings and lids by clicking here.

I used Perfectly Pink Christmas and Christmas Cherubs for these.  My daughter's favorite page this year is Christmas Kitty Cats, she made ornaments like these with those images and jute.
Another great page with good size pics is Santa Santa Santa.
No matter what color or theme you're looking for, you're going to find a Christmas page to fall in LOVE at Altered Pages.

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
