Valentine Treat 3

~Jars of Delight~

“Every object, every being is a jar full of delight. Be a connoisseur.”

A sweet idea for giving Valentines to your best friends! Just buy a bunch of small, quilted canning jars… Put a little circle of vintage fabric or a cupcake paper between the seal and lid ring…and fill with your friends’ favorite things…

~earrings or a ring

~little bottles of Lollia perfume

~chocolates and other candies

~conversation hearts

-a cool fortune you got in a fortune cookie

~confetti and scrapbook embellishments


~Tickets for :


-a movie

-a manicure

-spa treatment

-a mocha or latte


-a pizza delivered to their home

Use your imagination and have fun!

    Love this! It just goes to show how you don’t have to spend a lot to give a meaningful, beautiful gift.

    LOL I love this idea too – especially since I have a ton of pretty papers and lots of left over canning jars. Could make some cute jars for the daycare kids too!

    that’s what’s great about this craft…accessible materials and a fun, creative twist on the usual valentine 😉

    Oh that would be!!! I have A LOT of supplies, enough for a small store. LOL Been scrapping/stamping for 12 years now and was a demonstrator for a couple of companies. Lots and Lots of unused supplies – would definitely love to share!! And crafting with friends is soooooo much more fun than doing it alone!

    I agree! Nothing quite as fun as getting a bunch of friends together to create! 🙂
