Upgrade your bonbon mini-jar favours with a decorative lid. 

To ensure the paper covers the whole jar lid, including the sides, measure the lid's height and diameter.

Add these measurements together, adjust the circle cutter and cut out a paper circle. Then, to work out where the paper will be folded over, place the lid in the middle of the circle and draw around it. Cut slits 1cm apart along the outer circle to the traced line. Coat the strips with Mod Podge glue and fold over the lid. Seal the paper on top with Modge Podge.
