Birthday Beans

This sweetie jar is for my Brother-In-Laws 50th BirthdayBirthday Beans
The jar is from Poundworld and comes in a pack of three, which is a brilliant bargain! It’s really hard to tell them apart from the Rajtan jars in IKEA which cost more than double the price. Poundland have similar packs of jars too but to be honest the tops are not as nice.

Unfortunately, Poundland and Poundworld don’t have them on their shelves very often, so when they do I REALLY stock up ….. especially as I want  to make some more “Jingle Bean Jars” for Christmas. http://itsallfiddlefart.blogspot.com/2009/10/jar-of-jingle-beans.html

I’ve used my Stampin Up scalloped and plain circle punches for the labels and tag and a self adhesive ribbon strip for round the top of the jar.  The font is “Knits and Scraps” which you can downloaded free from http://www.dafont.com/knits-and-scraps.font.    The jelly beans are from Poundworld too and contain enough beans for two jars – so not a bad crafty make for 83p plus a few paper scraps.
