I still needed some more storage for pens and scissors on my desk so I whipped up two smaller containers, matching the larger nut containers earlier this month. (hmmm,..might want to find a better name for those).
These started life as artichoke jars. For one I simply mod podged a strip of coordinating scrapbook paper to the body and another to the lid. For the second jar, I punched out small circles in the same scrapbook paper and again mod podged the circles to the jar.
Super simple but prettier than plain.
