What you will need:
Little squares of paper
Mod Podge (matte finish)
1. Wash jars and remove any labels. At Design Sponge they say for you to use Goo Gone, I used Sticky Stuff Remover by De.Solv.It, that I got from Amazon. To remove smells, soak in a bleach solution and let it dry.
2. Place the lid over your scrap paper and trace the contour with a pencil. Sketch a 1/2cm bigger circle around your first circle. You can use a compass or another round object to help you tracing it.
3. Cut strips about 1/2cm apart, that go right up to the first pencil tracing. Coat inside the smaller circle with Mod Podge and adhere it to the lid. Give it a couple of minutes to dry.

5. Once you've glued all the strips, turn the lid over (pattern facing up) and give it a final coat with Mod Podge to seal. In the original tutorial they say to coat the whole lid, but it didn't work for me, so I coated only the sides (the area of the strips that were folded), both inside and outside.
And here is how it looked like on the table at our wedding!
