2. Cut  a rectangular piece of Treasure Tape from the heet to fit like a belt around the middle of your jar. Remove the white backing fromthis tape and attach it to your jar.
3. Using leftover pieces of Treasure Tape, cover the jar lid.
4. Peel off the red liner from the tape on your jar and begin embellishing:lay the fabric squares first, then the red satin ribbon, then the buttons.Lay the gold ribbon along the top and bottom as a decorative border, andfill in other sticky areas with the green braid colors.
5. When embellishing is complete to your satisfaction, lay the jar in your shallow pan and cover all remaining sticky areas with the Diamond Beadlets.Shake to dislodge loose beads.
6. Do the same with the jar lid to decorate it, then use your personalized,embellished holiday jar as a decoration or gift.
