Everything and Anything in a Jar makes a fantastic gift idea year round, from Christmas, Winter Survival jars to Valentines day and even birthdays, these adorable jars are perfect inexpensive gifts . . .
To create the jar, choose a Theme for the contents, cut a strip of scrapbook paper in whatever design you like and wrap it around the jar. The theme can be based on a hobby, job, color, season, etc
You’ll Need: Fillings/Contents for your Jar based on the Theme you’ve chosen a Mason Jar (wide mouth or regular, both work fine) A strip of scrapbook paper Or wrapping paper in a pretty design or Tissue Paper Print or hand-write a label for your jar
Simply wrap the strip around the jar (it’s okay if it doesn’t fit the entire way, you’ll be adding a cute label anyways!)
Add your label, “______ in a Jar”
Then carefully add your “ingredients” one item at a time. It’s helpful to use the eraser end of a pencil to hold other items down, particularly if you’re using a regular mouthed mason jar, rather than a wide mouth jar.
Various travel sized items work great as jar fillers
