Friendship Jar Color Board

I wonder if this happens to everyone. I have noticed that lately my cards always seem to use the same colors. Even though I have every color of PTI's cardstock, I seem to forget to use the full array. When I got my Friendship Jar set and saw the cute little button holders that Dawn McVey made, http://dawnmcvey.typepad.com/ (6/22/10), I immediately thought I could make a white board display of all of the PTI cardstock colors and display them in my craft room. Hopefully I can be reminded of the wide variety of cardstock I have to use. I cut a white jar for each color and stamped each jar with a PTI color ink. I added the small tag from the set in the actual cardstock color and stamped the little border in fresh snow ink. I used the Bitty Dot patterned paper to make a decorative collar for the jars. I am so glad that the new PTI Bitty Dot paper came out so I had every single color to use. Even Kraft! I added a few of the buttons from each color to every jar. I have to admit I don't have every single color of buttons, but PTI's buttons have such a variety of colors, I was able to come up with a few that blended with of each color. Each jar has a little magnetic dot on the back and they are lined up just as I have them in my cardstock file cabinet. I even have enough room to add future colors. I am going to hang this right over my desk so that hopefully, it will inspire me to use all of the fabulous colors of cardstock that PTI has created. Even if it doesn't though, I smile every time I look at those cute little jars in all of the cheerful colors.

You industrious person! Love this idea! And since they're magnetic, you can mix and match them on the same (or smaller version on your table) magnetic board to see with which color combos you want to play. :) Great idea!

What a fabulous and adorable idea this is! You are so right about forgetting some of those other colors that we just don't 'lean' towards. So glad I saw this on the 'shout out' thread on PTI.
