I was cleaning out the kitchen and noticed an eyesore on top of my refrigerator. It was a Ziploc bag full of candy. I have nothing against Ziploc bags, but I wanted to display the candy in a more decorative way. I headed to the dollar store and saw the cutest jar that would be perfect for this little DIY. Follow along to make one for yourself! Head to the dollar store and pick up a jar or whatever you'd like to put your candy into.

Supplies needed:

Step 1:

Upload the SVG into Cricut Design Space and resize. For mine, I resized it to 2.9 x 1.8. Your sizing may be different if your jar is bigger. Make sure you measure and size to your jar.

Step 2:

Highlight all of the text and click weld. Now you are ready to place your HTV on the mat.

Step 3:

Make sure to place the shiny side down on the mat and MIRROR YOUR IMAGE! You'll see the option to mirror the image once you click make it.

Step 4:

Before cutting set your machine to the 'Iron-on' cut setting.

Step 5:

Weed the outside so that the lettering is the only thing left. Don't forget to take out the spaces in letters like e, o and d.

Step 6:

Turn on your iron and use the highest heat setting.

Step 7:

Make sure to clean your glass with rubbing alcohol so there are no oils or dirt keeping the HTV from sticking.

Step 8:

Apply the lettering to your glass. The HTV doesn't like to stick to glass, so if you want you can use a small piece of tape to keep it in place.

Step 9:

Use the iron to go over each letter. Please be very careful, as the iron is HOT! Press each letter with the iron.

Step 10:

Start taking off the clear cover and make sure the HTV is sticking to the glass. If it hasn't, put the clear cover back over the lettering and add more pressure and heat.
