Love Is A Jar…

 Home Made Jar of Love….

This is a gift I made for my boyfriend and was very inexpensive! I only spent about $20 dollars, and the supplies can be purchased at your local craft store!

love jar

All you need is a glass jar with lid, decorative scrap book paper, stickers, peel off quotes, x-acto knife, ruler, and about 300 asst card stock paper approximately half the size of a 3×5 card. I had to purchase larger stock paper and cut it in half.

Next you want to measure the jar and cut off excess paper to line the jar with. I also used a small border piece along the bottom of the jar. I chose a pattern that coordinated with the stickers I chose.

You then add your peel off quotes, and stickers wherever you feel is eye pleasing!

decorate jar lid

I had some key stickers in my scrap book supplies, and peel off labels, which I added to the lid for some extra embellishing, along with a piece of ribbon I had left over!

quotes of love

I purchased a silver gel pen to write on the darker cards, but you basically just need to find a lot of quotes, poems, and memories you want to share with your loved one.
