When I was contacted to participate in the International Can It Forward Day With Ball ® campaign for their 100 year anniversary I was thrilled. Really, who doesn’t love a Ball ® mason jar? They are a staple in most DIY enthusiasts homes, are they not? To commemorate their big milestone, the folks at Ball ® designed the “Perfection Jar”, a limited edition green mason jar that’s only being produced in 2014. I’m loving this color, especially for the fall season 🙂
Want to win these green lovelies for yourself ?
Read on for my Ball® Package giveaway including 2 cases of the special edition jars!
Even though International Can It Forward Day with Ball ® is about canning, Ball® is also celebrating the many other uses we love these versatile jars for. They’ve asked a few bloggers to create a craft using the “Perfection Jar”.
I’m busy working on mine now. This Saturday, I’ll post my little crafty creation.
In the meantime, Why not check out some of the fantastic information and products on the Ball® website FreshPreserving.com.
