      You could tie a round of fabric over the mouth of the jar with ribbon, thats what our grandmothers used to do! Any brilliant idea readers?

    I am having trouble getting my jars to adhere to the e-600. What is the trick to making these apothecary jars :-(

      Are y ou following the directions to let the E-6000 get tacky before you put the two pieces together?

    Hello ?
    These Apothecary Jars are fabulous, my question is… may I use Hot Silicon Gun as a Glue? I’m not sure I can find E6000 Glue in Madrid.
    Thanks for sharing ?

      I would try it on a cheap piece first, to see if it holds… glass can be finicky about staying stuck!

    Love the jars! I have what I’m calling a “love jar” for my granddaughters wedding shower. I need a discreet note to say: put money in the jar every time you make love….saving for a vacation, etc……without sounding crass, etc. Any ideas?? Help this grandma!
