Jelly Bean Jar

I've got another altered spice container to show you today.  This time it's a simple glass jar that once held organic cinnamon.  I just purchased the Tim Holtz Idea-ology Seasonal Salvage Stickers from Blitsy and whipped up a quick project to play around with the Easter stickers.  Seriously...this is really quick and, filled with jelly beans or some other little candies, would make the cutest little Easter gift.

Here's the top.  The "cinnamon" label wouldn't come off easily, so I just covered it up with layered flowers and a button.  No details needed on this project!
