  • Cricut Joy or Cricut Maker with Fine Point Blade
  • Standard grip mat
  • Cricut Premium Vinyl Permanent in black
  • 3 Mason Jars lids removed 16oz
  • Scissors
  • Weeder tool
  • Americana Chalky Finish for Glass in Lace
  • Paintbrush


Preparing the Jars

  • Apply a thin coat of chalky finish paint to each of the mason jars.

Preparing the Vinyl Lettering

  • On a blank canvas, select the text icon from the toolbar and type GROW.
  • Change the font to “Little White Lies”. With the word highlighted, adjust the letter spacing to 0.7.
  • Stretch the lettering by clicking on the lock symbol above the size section and adjusting the height to 1.7” while keeping the width the same.
  • Next, click on the unlock symbol and adjust the word height to 2”.
  • With the word highlighted, click on the “Weld” button.
  • Complete the same for the other words: THRIVE and BLOOM.
  • Select “Make It” in Design Space.
  • Follow prompts for loading the mat into the Cricut Maker or Cricut Joy and cutting the Premium Vinyl. Remove the Premium Vinyl from the mat when done.
  • Cut around each word with a pair of scissors. Using the weeding tool, peel away the excess vinyl around the cut images and discard.

Assembling the Jars

  • Cut a piece of transfer tape a bit larger than the size of the text.
  • Peel away the transfer tape backing but ensure the transfer tape is not overly sticky.
  • Place the transfer tape overtop of the cut word. Gently rub the vinyl to help it stick to the transfer tape.
  • Peel away the vinyl backing and position the phrase with the transfer tape on to the smooth side of a jar and press in place.
  • Slowly and carefully remove the transfer tape leaving the vinyl image on the jar.
  • To finish, fill the containers with pretty peonies.
