- Scrap of fabric

*Start out with a clean jar. You can soak it with some water and soap. To get the sticker off, I put the jar (with the water inside) in a bowl that the rim was higher than the jar with some water. After a while, it should be easy to scrape off the sticker.*
Step 1- Measure the opening of the jar. Once you have the measurement, you can decide how much fabric you want to have hanging over the sides. For me, my jar measured almost two and a half inches, so I added 1 ½ inches for the fabric which is 4 inches.
Once you’ve made the button hole, you need to open it. To do that, you open it with the seam ripper.
If using a permanent marker- you can decorate however you like with the marker/s. On the jar used for this tutorial, I wrote ‘Savings Jar’ on two sides.
