DIY Project – My Gratitude Mason Jar

The 40th weekend of Njaanuary. A warm, sunny Saturday. A perfect day for a DIY.

I got this gratitude jar idea from my very good friend (I know, I know. I’m starting to sound like I am making up all these “my friends” stories). I went ahead and bought my mason jar in preparation for this challenge.

DIY projects excite me! You can literally bring so much to life with a few materials and a couple of YouTube tutorials. 🙂 Not only is it rewarding to complete a DIY project, but it also helps you save money and it is always fun creating something new.

When a friend asked for ideas for her wedding cards (you’ve gotta love a hands-on bride), I was more than glad to help. The initial idea was that we would print out the cards and have the bow design embossed on there. However, that did not quite pan out how we had envisioned and we therefore had to personalize the cards by adding the bows on each and every card. Continue reading
