Looking for a fun way to contain all of your pets treats? I’ve partnered with Milo’s Kitchen® Homestyle Dog Treats to create a spoiled dog treat jar to contain some of their homestyle dog treats Jersey loves to eat! This post contains two free cut files.
Every once in a while my beagle, Jersey, makes an appearance here (more often over on my Instagram stories). I am not sure if you’ve ever met a beagle, but they can be a bit of a handful. Jersey isn’t mischievous per se (most of the shots I share are of her lazing about the house), but her nose does get her into a lot of trouble. She has a tendency to “escape” the house and follow her nose. As a puppy, I treat-trained Jersey to “come.” These days she’ll usually return to get a bite of something delicious.
A number of years ago, I found out that the treats I was using as a part of Jersey’s reward system were made in China. While they proudly proclaimed to be chicken, they were actually filled with a lot of harmful ingredients. I have been very careful since to only feed her products that I could confirm were made in the U.S.A. and contained REAL meat as the number one ingredient.
I found Milo’s Kitchen® Homestyle Dog Treats a few years ago. The products contain chicken, beef or duck as the number one ingredient and are free of any artificial flavors. They’re also made domestically, which provides me with peace of mind.
Spoiled Dog Treat Jar
I keep all of Jersey’s treats sealed up tight in glass containers. Not only do they look pretty, but I can see how full the jars are so we don’t run out (HEAVEN FORBID!!!) of treats. In addition, they make great gifts for dogs or new dog owners!
Today I am sharing two fun dog treat jar ideas, along with two free cut files so that you can make your own!
To recreate this dog treat jar project you will need:
Spoiled Dog Cut Files (two free file downloads available at the bottom of the post)
Electronic Cutting Machine (like a Cricut or Silhouette)
White Permanent Adhesive Vinyl
Glass Jar (I used a two gallon jar and a one gallon jar)
Milo’s Kitchen® Homestyle Dog Treats (they’re easy to find in the pet section at your local Walmart)
How to create a dog treat jar:
- Download the spoiled dog treat jar cut file of your choice (free file downloads available at the bottom of the post).
- Upload the cut file to your electronic cutting machine software, load your white permanent adhesive vinyl right side up and run the machine.
- Weed the negative space from your white permanent adhesive vinyl using a weeding tool.
- Apply transfer tape over your image and remove adhesive vinyl backing.
- Place the design on a clean glass jar (I like to clear the jar with a bit of rubbing alcohol after making sure it’s clean with soap and water) and burnish with a tool or credit card. Pull away transfer tape.
- Let your project “cure” for 24-hours before use. This will ensure the vinyl stays on, even through washing.
Add Milo’s Kitchen® Homestyle Dog Treats to your spoiled dog treat jar:
This step is by far the easiest. Grab a couple bags of dog treats while you’re at shopping at your local Walmart. Jersey loves the Milo’s Kitchen® Chicken Recipe with Wild Rice & Spring Vegetables, as well as the Milo’s Kitchen® Beef Recipe with Real Brisket & Garden Vegetables, but all the flavors are made with real meat and there are several to choose from.
