{free download} americana glass jar lid insert

Today’s patriotic decoration is one of my favorite lil’ touches. It adds a lil’ extra pop to your favorite Ball, Mason and Kerr jars.

SUPPLIES:

DIRECTIONS:

1. Print 1 sheet of Patriotic Flair Paper and 1 sheet of the star add-ons (page 2) from the Americana Tags. I chose ivory for a slightly aged look and printed at “Standard” print quality.

2. Flip over just the Patriotic Flair Paper and place it back in your printer. Print the Glass Jar Lid Insert Template on the back. Use the “Draft” or “Fast” print quality setting since this is just a guideline for cutting.

3. Cut out the inserts and the stars.

4. Punch a hole in the insert big enough for the straw you are using. Most standard-sized straws work with a 1/4″ hole.

5. Attach a pop-up adhesive dot or foam square to the back of one star. Adhere to the insert making sure not to cover the straw hole.

6. Place the insert between the top of the glass jar and the metal jar ring.

TIP: To secure the insert for easy refills, attach the insert to the jar ring with double-stick tape or mini adhesive dots.

7. Add your favorite straw and Ta-Da! The perfect topper for all of your favorite glass jars!

The template fits most standard-sized jar lids. Using a wide straw? Adjust the hole size to fit. I used a 5/8″ punch for the milkshake straw.

In case you missed it yesterday, you can find the Lil’ Party Flags here.

I hope you’re inspired to make your drinks a lil’ fancier!
