Vintage Blue Mason Jar

Hello Peeps!
Happy Tuesday!!
Heather here and today I would like to share with you a small vintage blue looking mason jar that I altered for my mom.  
I started out with a light blue Mason Jar, and I took off the top and painted it ivory.  I purchased this new from Meijer the other day.
I cut out my collage pieces, and inked them with Ranger's Vintage Photo Distress ink.  I used a fine tip applicator and added the Designer dries clear glue along both side edges of my square piece.
Next I added the Juliet Lace from Really Reasonable Ribbon to my sides, I added the Foam Tabs to the back of my square piece.
I added the foam tabs to my heart, being careful to leave room so I could slide some ribbon behind the piece once I adhered it to my jar.
I centered my heart onto my pink square piece.  I added the foam tabs to my Pencils & Pens label.    I left the center open, because that part of the label will lay flat on the heart piece.
Next I wrapped my Edna Crochet Lace around my jar, trimmed it, then glued it in place.
Next I added my square piece to the jar.
Next I took the Satin Pearl Pink ribbon, and threaded it behind the heart image, and around my jar.  I tied it in a bow in the back.
 I also took some of my favorite Light Pink Organza, wrapped it around the mouth of the jar, and tied a bow in the front.  Here is a shot from the side.
I added some designer dries clear glue with the fine tip applicator around the edges of heart and label.
Then I applied Rose Gold Ultrafine opaque glitter.
I added a sweet little button from the Vintage Button Bonanza Collection and tied a little bow with the Aqua Baker's Twine.  I placed my painted lid on top, and my sweet little jar is all finished.  
I filled it with my mom's favorite candies, so she can keep it as it...till she wants to use it for Pencils & Pens.   I also bought some pencils and pens...we are always looking for a Pencil or a Pen when we are there...lol.
Here are a couple other photos.
