What’s In The Jar?
Today’s craft starts with the humble jar. I love glass jars. These days you only have to look up Pinterest and type in jar and you will find thousands of uses for them. From collecting insects, displaying flowers, storing items, gifting baked goods or candy and more. While product sourcing for our sticker and stationery subscriptions, I found these adorable jar stickers from one of my favourite variety shops. Aren’t they sweet? Although they are actually for labeling jars with, I could see the potential for a fabulous craft opportunity. An empty jar, waiting to be filled with something fun!
My Favourite Things In A Jar Card.
To make your own version of this sweet card you will need:
- A plain, coloured or patterned card with envelope.
- A jar shaped label sticker.
- A selection of stickers and embellishments of your choice.
This really is a simple task. Most important, is deciding what to put IN your jar. If this is for someone special, think about their favourite hobbies, or whether they collect things or even something that reminds you of them, like a favourite experience you have had with them. Perhaps you remember going to a fun fair day with your friend and you decide to fill their jar with a ticket and stickers of carnival rides, pluto pups ( corn dogs), popcorn, show bags and fireworks. Maybe its for your Granddad and he loves to fish. You could slightly colour the jar half way to resemble water and stick fish in the jar.
Here are a few filled jar ideas for you.
Once you have stuck your choice of stickers and embellishments on to your jar sticker, you can stick the jar on to the front of your chosen card. Leave the front simple or continue to decorate your card. The following cards are ones I have made for a son’s young boy, a sweet little girl and a family member who loves the beach!
Well there you have it. A chance find in a local variety store gave me a craft idea which I think you’ll agree looks great and can be wonderfully personal. I hope you have fun with this one and as always, I’d love to see your own creations if you want send them via email or tag Lettuce Write on Facebook or Instagram.
