we here at Gecko Galz are blown away by the designs our design team comes up with using our products and thought it might be fun for all our followers to learn how to make some of these darling treasures so to kick things off we picked this amazing little cuttie in a jar by Wendy Waldorf and here is how to make your own bottle!

Products Used:

little girl - Gecko Galz Christmas Cuties Collage Sheet
background paper - Gecko Galz Christmas Icons


Choose a clean jar for your project. Paint the lid if needed. Choose the images you wish to display in your jar and resize if necessary. Attach the stand up image to a heavier piece of paper and cut out. Create a paper stand for your image (paper punch two circles and fold one in half and glue one half to the base and the other half to your image). Insert your stand up image and glue to base of jar. Add embellishments to the jar. This jar includes rice, clear sequins, bark and a twig. The background paper can be left freestanding or double stick tape can be used to attach it to the back of the jar. Decorate the outside of the jar as you wish. This one has red garland wrapped around the top. 
Now here is something fun just for you! Go over to Wendy's blog site and start following her then email us at and we will send you a FREE digital stamp just for following her great adventures!
