tiny notes | gift jar

Ohhhhh, that Laura’s done it again! Look at this amazing gift jar of little notes that she’s made!

 






[ Shapes | Signed.Sealed.Delivered. (envelope and circles) / This+That: Lucky (flower+vase) ]


Now who wouldn’t want to receive that as a Christmas gift? I love this idea!!! My mother-in-law is always wanting to give handmade notes–but she ain’t makin’ them. ;) And I’m particularly fond of the tiny little staple at the neck of the bottle. I would have never thought of that! Love it! And I just love the cuteness and tininess of those envelopes!


Here’s what Laura has to say:

I have this huge collection of jars that I have stored away, that I used to use in my scrapbook studio years ago. I love finding new ways to use these jars, for gift giving at birthdays and holidays. I was thinking ahead to Christmas, and trying to come up with some ideas for gifts that I could make. I thought it would be cute to make some tiny little cards and fill up a jar with them.

I used the Fancy Long Envelope, from the Signed.Sealed.Delivered. kit, to create my envelopes from white textured cardstock. I made them pretty tiny, so they’re only 4 inches tall, and about 2 inches wide. I also the Circle Insets, from this same kit, to add some interest to the fronts of the envelopes. For the flower and vase, I used the shapes from the This & That: Lucky kit, and cut them from tan, green, and orange cardstock. After I adhered them to the front of each tiny envelope, I added a small staple at the neck of the vase, and an orange jewel to the flower. I also trimmed small pieces of blue cardstock, to slip inside of each envelope.

I created 12 of these, and added them to a jar, that I embellished with ribbon and a fun little tag hanging from a chain. It’s a cute little gift that you can give to a friend or family member, and they will have tiny little notes on hand, that they can then share with their friends or family.

This is simply super cute! “Who wouldn’t want to receive this for a Christmas gift?” – I would love this, just to sit it on my kitchen counter and look pretty!

Smart idea to prepare a bunch of cards so someone else can use them to give away. That is double duty gifting! Love it.
