Earth Friendly Friday with Authentique!




Hey all...it's Earth Friendly Friday over at the Authentique Blog and I created this fun project to share with all you Authentique fans!  As I was trying to decide what I wanted to create for Earth Friendly Friday, I did what any other smart girl would do and went to Pinterest for a little inspiration.  I saw this cute little bird diorama.  This project was made using a Mason Jar.  Perfect...I reuse my Mason Jars over and over again.  This project was inspired by houseofhumble.com, so go over and see her cute bird diorama!  Sorry about the the glare.  I tried forever to try to get the best picture possible.


I found these cute little birds at Michaels, which matched perfectly with the new Lively Collection.  So, I searched my yard for the perfect branch.  Perfect...another Earth friendly material found in my own backyard!  It took awhile to get it cut just right to fit tight in the jar, but look how cut it sits!


I also made this fun banner using some of the patterned papers from the Lively Collection and the Details stickers and strung it on either side of the branch and tied it.  Supa cute huh?



For the finishing touches, I added some moss grass to the bottom.  I also decorated the top of the jar.  I covered the ring with patterned paper, added some ribbon and baker's twine, tied it off with a cute bow and added a sticker tag from the Details stickers.


For the very top off the jar, I covered the lid with more patterned paper, added another Detail sticker and some rope twine around the ring.


This was so fun and it amazes me how much things we can find around our house to reuse and make into fabulous projects.  This is going on my shelf in my scrapbooking room...well, as soon as the shelf is finished.  That's another project in itself.   Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by!
