  1. This is a quick and easy project! Mix bath scrub ingredients in bowl (recipe below) and scoop into jar. Replace lid. Clean outside of jar completely to remove any overspill residue. Set aside.
  2. Using your Big Shot and dies, cut lettering and strawberry. Measure and cut background paper to size to fit around glass jar overlapping seam at back. Mark front center. Lay background paper face up on flat work surface. Using front center mark to guide placement, glue lettering and strawberry onto background paper. Wrap paper around jar and glue or tape to hold.
