- Time:2 hours
1Cut Halloween Paper into 2-1/2 inch squares; double sided paper works best when creating flowers, which is how the Authentique paper pads are designed!
2Place base cutting board from die cut machine down, then Quilled Creations white base; place 2 flower dies foam side up, then paper. Top sandwich with purple cutting mat. Run through machine and remove die cut flowers. Repeat until there are various sized flower dies, approximately 40-50.
3Roll flower die onto slotted tool. Wiggle flower off of tool and let relax so flower opens up. Turn flower over and add glue and then pressing flower tab (end of die flower) against the glue and hold between fingers in place until glue starts to set (15-30 seconds). Put aside and repeat with all flowers.
4Use Jewelry Pliers or bone folder to bend flower petals to look more realistic. For a great video of how to create these flowers, go to Quilled Creations Alli Bartowskis videos.
5Punch out Spider Web dies from scrap paper; a thinner scrapbook paper would work better as it will bend along the rounded sides of the glass surface better. Punch out as many as you want on the glass; add 2 Way Zig glue to the back of the dies; let dry set/become repositionable and then stick onto glass. Note that some may peel back, but its okay if they all dont stick to surface, as that adds dimension to the finished look of the Frosted Glass.
6Following directions on the Frosted Glass Spray Can, work outside and spray Mason Jar to create frosted look. When spray has set, carefully remove spider web punch designs. These shapes will have acted as a mask and the spider web shapes will be see through!
7Glue the inner metal circle of Mason Jar to lid. To create domed look on lid, you can either cut a small Styrofoam® ball, glue down and hot glue flowers around and over it, or as was done here, glue down the first layer of flowers, then build up second layer, but only placing flowers on the inner two rows, then again adding third layer in the very top.
