Altered canning jar band ornaments

Here are pics of a couple different styles I've tried so far:

There are several things about these ornaments I really like, first being the size--
not too big, not too small.  They are also very easy to customize for the person
you're planning to give them to, by selecting colors and things you know the
recipient would like. Third, and this may be the best:  these are super easy to
make!  If you'd like to know more, you can find complete directions in the annual  
FREE Christmas issue of AlteredArts Magazine.
Ooooh, look, there they are!  It makes me grin to see them in "print."
AND, through Deccember 15th, you can take $7 off a one year subscription 
by using the code bonus7 when checking out from the website!

I found those Christmas ornaments on Pinterest and pinned them to my "Cans, Jars, & Tubes" board. Didn't realize they were yours, so will have to go make a note of it. Going to the scrapbook expo next weekend?
