Last week I introduced my new mason jar designs. I also recently had the opportunity to work with a local school to create their prom mementos. The theme was "Kickin' it in the Sticks", so the mason jars were a perfect fit!
I had to do a little work to the original design before I could get started. A local artist drew the original design that they used for signs and t-shirts. The only problem was, it was too busy for the mason jars. I have about 2.5" in width to work with, so the design was overwhelming on the glass. I scanned the design into my software and from there was able to remove many of the images and leave the piece I wanted to work with. I moved around the wording a little as well to make it fit the format of the glass.
The end design includes the original wording to match as well as the fire from the original drawing. I received word after the prom that the kids loved the mason jars!
(I apologize for the terrible photo...I forgot all I had was a cell phone shot!)
I know when I went to prom we received champagne flutes. Sure they were neat, but I've never done anything with them and I'm sure they'll eventually get thrown away or recycled. But the mason jars are so great. Not only are they perfect for drinking out of (obviously), but they can also hold pens/pencils when the kids go to college. They also make cute little rustic vases too :)
