Patriotic Stars Jar with Cricut Adhesive Foil

Some links are affiliate links

Time to start thinking about all those red white and blue decorations! If you're really on the ball, you maybe already made something for Memorial Day. But if not, this red and blue stars jar works perfeclty for both Flag Day and the 4th of July.

Here are the supplies you'll need:
Glass jar (one with straight sides is always the easiest to apply vinyl to)
Cricut Adhesive Foil (stainless red and stainless aqua)
Cricut Transfer Tape
Cricut Explore Air 2

**From now until the end of June, my readers get a special code to use to get 15% off most supplies at Cricut.com - Use the code CRAFTRAIN when you check out (not valid on machines, digital content or access)**

In Cricut Design space, find this image: Stars Border, (item #M3CE69)

Measure around your jar and make the length of the image match that. Mine was 11 inches around, so I cut the design 11 inches long.

Cut from red and blue foil. **NOTE- I tried the adhesive foil custom setting, and it cut all the way through the backing. If you want that, then great! But then I also tried the Vinyl+ setting on the dial and it cut just the vinyl and left the back.

Weed the extra vinyl out and layer the top color on the bottom.

Use transfer tape to layer the vinyl pieces. 

Then wrap it around the jar. 

I cut this design out twice - once where the red was the base, and once where the blue was the base, just to mixe it up.

Fill up the jar with candy, or add flowers, or turn it into a tealight holder by filling it with epsom salt. Super cute, and super easy, right?

Thanks for reading! Happy crafting, and don't forget to do some shopping with that discount code above if you need some of these supplies.
