I bought a jar of Mod Podge a long time ago and just never used it. I recently ran across this blog that inspired me to pull it out and give it a try. A birthday for a friend of mine gave me the the opportunity.
I bought an inexpensive glass jar at Wal-Mart and found some pretty tissue paper at a craft store. I cut the tissue paper to the size I wanted, put a little Mod Podge on the jar to hold it in place, smoothed it out, and applied more Mod Podge on the top to seal it. An hour or so later, this is what I had:
Not bad for my first attempt, I think! I filled it with some vanilla sugar and wrapped it up. I think she was almost more excited about the jar than the sugar. :)
