Candy jar

I found this cute jar at the Dollar Tree, and decided it needed a bit of altering. I probably won't adhere the tissue paper the next time, but it's still cute enough to hold the Foss family's stockpile of springtime jellybeans :)
The tissue paper was purchased at the Dollar Tree, it's hard to see that it has pastel dots on it. I glued a strip of the pastel stripe coordinating tissue paper by the ribbon, you can see it better. Papers are all scraps. MLS alpha stickers. Imaginisce I-Rock pink jewels. Random gingham ribbon. Prima flowers, except for the blue one, which is MM. Stickles on the flowers for some bling. TFL!
