Paint jars with White and Blue paint. Let dry. (Once dry sand lightly with Sanding Grip.)

Die cut one Mini Rosette, two extra medallions from the Rosette die and two Labels out of Correspondence Paper Stash.

Stamp star/circle stamp onto rosette medallions with Classic Cherry Ink. Glue Mirrored stars in the center.

Wrap Paper String around the mouth of the jars, leaving enough slack to tie a bow. Poke a hole in the top of the medallion with a craft pick and insert into one side of the paper string. Tie the ends of the paper string in a bow.

Add flowers and star tinsel into the jars.

Stamp “Stars & Stripes” on beige cardstock with Classic Cherry ink and cut into rectangles close to the words. Mat word rectangles with Blue Cardstock. Glue rectangles onto labels and rosettes, and then onto the straws as shown.

Tie ribbon around the straws and place them into the jars.
