5 Ways to Use Mason Jars for Valentines Day

Valentines day is rapidly approaching. It is hard to believe that we are already in the third week of January! With Valentines Day in just three weeks, I promised my procrastinating self that I would get things done in advance. Poking around the web, I found some very creative and fun ways to dress up my Valentine's gifts. Perhaps these might inspire some home-spun "Be My Valentine" goodness for you too.

1. Pucker Up: Keri over at Shaken Together Life, fills pint size jars with Lemon Drops and adds an adorable tag reading, "Pucker Up." Simple, yet adorable. I can taste the lemony goodness as I type this.

2. Hearts Wrapped Up: Beth at Beth-A-Palooza used her Cricut machine to make mini Mason tags to mimic the jar, added some shredded paper and valentine fabric to create a unique jar gift. Some candy or a trinket and, ta-da, you have a sweet Valentine gift for sure.

3.You're The Bomb: Mara of Joyful Mara came up with this clever way to blow-up Valentine's Day. Cute!

4. S'More Than You: Teacher's appreciate Valentines just like kids do. Here is a sweet gift for that favorite teacher from Kimberly at A Night Owl Blog. Kimberly even included the printable tags!

5. I Am A Sucker For You: Share and Remember has a great adaptation of the Valentine Card. Using a printable Mason Jar, a lolipop, and some Washi Tape, these cards are quick and easy, but oh so cute. Printed on bright card stock, these are sure to be a hit.

Valentines + Mason Jars = Can't go wrong.
