12 "Tags" of Christmas for the Funkie Junkie: Jar Eleven

Goodness, we're creeping down to the very last of these aren't we! I've got something fun up my sleeve when they are all done, so I'm a little anxious! I had quite a lot of fun with this one painting the base red with gold speckles and making that ribbon rose.

Linda's tag from the Funkie Junkie blog provided quite a lot of inspiration. I used the Christmas colors and grabbed a little of my own burlap to wrap around my jar. 

The whole thing was pretty simple when I got inspired to roll my own ribbon rose from my plaid ribbon. I wanted a rose or a flower, but was having trouble finding one in my stash I I wanted to use plaid like Linda. When I made a bow with it, it wasn't making me happy. After rolling the rose, I added some vintage holly to mimic the little sprig she used at the top of the bow and then I was pleased. In fact, these are so flat I can see making some for a scrapbook page or two!

I'll be back very soon with Jar Twelve and a fond farewell to the Funkie Junkie Boutique who sponsored this challenge. She is drawing winners on my birthday so I'm hoping for a very special birthday surprise of a gift certificate to the store! If not, I'll content myself with a 10% off coupon!

Anyhow, happy Thursday to you! Friday is just around the corner....excuse me while I put on my mittens...that pesky white stuff has showed up here in NY....
