What You Will Need

  • Wide mouth mason jar with smooth sides
  • Craft paint in the color of your choice
  • Paintbrush
  • Kleenex Upright tissues
  • Vinyl in the color of your choice
  • Transfer tape
  • Bless you art for cutting
  • Thick card stock
  • Craft knife
  • Self-healing mat


Painting the Jar

  • Start with a clean and dry jar. You can wipe it down with rubbing alcohol then allow to dry to get it really clean.
  • Use a good quality paint and add a couple of coats with a paint brush. Be sure to allow to dry in between coats and follow all package directions. You can also use spray paint for this step.
  • I find that painting with my hand inside of the jar allows me to get all of the surfaces easily then I always allow to dry upside down.

Adding Bless You to the Front

  • While your paint dries, you can cut the file with your Cricut machine. You can find the download instructions for the file above. Then just upload the file to Cricut Design Space. You can click here to see how to do that easily.
  • Then cut your file from the vinyl color of your choice.
  • Weed away all excess from around your words as well as the centers of letters. You can see my tips for weeding here.
  • Apply transfer tape to your vinyl and press down well.
  • Lift the backing from your vinyl leaving it stuck to your transfer tape.
  • Once the jar is dry, you can apply this to the front and lift up the transfer tape to leave your vinyl on the jar. Press down well.

Making a Mason Jar Tissue Holder Lid

  • Use the lid you removed from the jar to cut a circle from heavyweight cardstock with scissors.
  • Then use a craft knife and self-healing mat to cut an "X" in the center of your circle. You want to make sure you do not go all the way to the edges with your "X" as you still want this to be one piece.
  • Add this cardstock circle to the band for your lid and you have a mason jar tissue holder lid for your project.

Adding in the Tissues

  • I am using the "perfect fit" tissues from Kleenex as they work in the jar perfectly.
  • With the upright version, I just removed the tissues from their packaging and dropped them right into my mason jar tissue holder.
  • Then add the lid and pull one through the top to complete your craft project.
