Then wrap a piece of white cardstock with white tissue paper and use tape to secure in the back. The shiny side of the tissue paper should be against the cardstock. Then print the image of your choice onto the matte side of the tissue paper as shown below.
Remove the tissue paper from the cardstock. Trim around your image and decide where on your jar you would like it to be placed. Use Americana Decoupage medium to adhere the image to your jar. Printing on tissue paper will make the image blend into the jar more. Just coat your image on the back with the decoupage medium. If you need to add any decoupage to the front, be sure to spray a matte sealer or hair spray over the tissue paper first to lock in the ink.
Once the decoupage dries completely, you can add a hand stamped tag to your jar as shown.
What to put in your jar? Print enough of these fun free printable bookmarks for the class. This is a great gift for the teacher and classroom to celebrate the birthday of Dr. Seuss. Just place the bookmarks inside the jar and add a lid.
