When you see the “helping hand” symbol on a project, it means you may need adult supervision to do the project. Always use care when using tools or a heat source. Be careful and safe!


(Note: for best results, please take a moment to review all instructions on product packaging before beginning any project.)

1. Tape off the center of jar with masking tape. Smooth edges of tape.
2. Squirt out blue Texture Magic™ on the jar between the masking tape. Using the Easy-Grip Spreader™ smooth the Texture Magic™ approximately 1/8” from edges of the tape, all the way around the jar. Carefully remove the tape.
3. Begin embedding the beads to the surface and gently push in place. Continue with other treasures until the jar is complete. Let dry completely. (Be sure beads and treasures are light weight. If the objects are too heavy they will slide on the jar as it dries.)
4. Using the lid of the jar as a pattern trace the shape on cardboard. Cut out. Draw a slit approximately ½” x 2” centered in the cardboard lid to insert coins. Cut it out with a plastic knife or scissors. Place cardboard lid inside lid ring and secure on jar.
5. Squeeze blue Texture Magic™ on the lid. Spread to cover the cardboard and the ring. Let dry completely.
