|Painting the jar|
Next take your acrylic paint and paint the top portion of the jar. be careful let the first coat dry, and then apply the next coat. But don't go over one area to many times as the first coat will start to come up and bubble. I paint more then half way down the jar onto the label just to make sure I have the expiration date covered, also this reassures that there will be no none painted spots showing above my paper line at the top.
You can leave it without paint, but your expiration date will show, there is product called "Stays on all purpose cleaner" that will take the ink off. But I like how it looks painted, plus I did not have that product on hand.

|Mod podge your paper|
Flip over your paper and take what ever you use to spread your mod podge and give it a good layer on the back of the paper. Don't be afraid give it a good coat. You want it to stick to your jar.

At this point you should be to the back of your jar making sure your seam is nice and even. Make sure to smooth the paper down going around all sides. You want to make sure you have no bubbles from the mod podge. You want to make sure everything is going to stick and not come up. And if you used a good coat of Mod Podge you should not have this issue.
Now you can start taking what ever embellishments and accessories you have chosen to adorn your jar with and start using your hot glue gun on them. Placing them on your jar to your style and taste.

|Let it dry|
Last but Not least. Let your jar sit and dry. It will not take to long depending how hot or cold your work area is. But if your working under a nice lamp they tend to dry very quickly I have found in my case.
Have fun creating, Altering, and Scrapping ladies. Till next time. I hope you enjoyed this tutorial.
