Altered Item at Crafting with Dragonflies. Challenge #19

We are challenging you to do something different for our
New Challenge over at
We would like to see your creativity flow by altering a tin or jar
with a Vintage Theme.
Here is what I made
A Money Jar to put your 2 cents worth for your phone calls
to go with the telephone digi
supplied by our Sponsor

and this is how I started - the jar
Using a digi supplied by our sponsor above
I played around with it by copying it a multitude of times
inked in various colours added perfect pearls
and clear embossing it.
I scrunched it up to add effect then attached it to the jar.
Added lace with iridescent cotton and attached a
bag charm with $.
On the lid I glued old 1 and 2 cent pieces which is
old currency here in Australia.
The flower was made similar to the covered jar
again using the telephone digi (impossible for you to see lol)
with Tim Holtz Tattered Florals cut several time and finished
with an antique button.
Hope you will join in on our latest challenge
and be sure to go and visit the other Dragonflies blog
to see their awesome altered items.
