Mason jars for my Valentines!

Since my Prince Charming has yet to sweep me off my feet, I decided to make Valentines for my Momma and my best gals instead.  I took plain Mason jars, which can be purchased at Michaels, and decorated them with doilies, pearls, ribbon, twine, flowers & vintage cut-outs.  

To fill the jar, I wrote out some of my favorites quotes on various colored card stock.  I also added some of my own words in as well.  Craft scissors added variation to the borders of my notes. 

Ta da! Simple & affordable gifts for your best gals or significant other.  The one below is for the lovely Jessica Joy, aka my best friend since age zero.  Hers has the Eiffel Tower on it.  Oh, Paris.  How I love thee.  The gift tags were made out of card stock, a string of small pearls, twine & a heart-shaped hole punch.

Below, are a couple more that I made.  Don't forget to decorate the lid of your Mason jar!  I cut circles out of card stock and added doilies and pearls to each. 

Enjoy your Valentines!  Wishing you a day filled with lots of love, whether you're spending it with your soulmate, best gals or a nice glass of wine.  Fall in love, laugh with your friends & love your ridiculously unique self.  

Sending you lots of sunshine,
