Altered Almond Jar

PID's design team challenge for December is Easy Mixed Media Christmas Presents and I decided to alter an almond container. My newest favorite snack is Vanilla Bean flavored almonds.. Yum!!!! The cover is hinged in the center and one side opens which made me think it would be a cool bank... another idea is to leave the cover off, put some stone or marbles in the bottom and use it as a vase - it wouldn't work for anything long stemmed but it'd be great for shorter flowers. You can see more pictures and get directions on the PID blog here. You should also check out the fabulous things the other designers made - Gabrielle's Christmas card and shadow box, Ursula's Christams card and gift in one, Angie's altered photo album, Pam's bookmarks, and Arlene's matchbox Christmas ornaments.
