Hello everyone! Welcome to the We R blog! It’s Eva Pizarro here today sharing how to turn a common mason jar into a Gratitude Jar with the help of your favorite We R tools.
Gratitude is a beautiful virtue and what better way to practice it than with a Gratitude Jar? You can use it with your family or to give to a friend during this holiday season. I decorated the jar and the lid and also hung a tag with a few papers for writing down things you’re grateful for.
To make the tag I cut some 2×3 plain copy paper and then used the Perforate blade on my Dial Trimmer to make them tearable.
I stapled my paper together with The Staple Board set at “L” for large, and then glued this pad of paper to a tag.
The tag has a scallop border made with the Dial Trimmer and I used the Reinforce Hole Punch to decorate it.
The jar is just a common mason jar that has a Thickers phrase attached. I love these pink Thickers from The Heart of Home Collection by Pebbles. Aren’t they super cute?
Finally, to decorate the lid I used some papers from the same collection and a heart I made using my Heart Clear Cut Punch. You can punch anywhere on the page and align everything perfectly. I love these punches!
Have you ever made a Grateful Jar? You can start this year! Teach your kids that you can find a reason to be grateful everyday.
Have a great week!
