As promised here is the message in a jar post I made for Mel’s farewell-new job-birthday celebrations.
WHAT YOU NEED:
1} A jar to store your messages (Jar from dollar tree)
2} A pile of 3×2″ white papers (computer paper is just fine)
3} A bunch of four inch strings for your guest to tie their message ( I used hemp strings)
4} Two card 8 x 12″ board pieces (cardboard from old boxes)
5} Utensils for your guest to write with. Sharpies never a bad idea.
6} AND your creativity!
Message in a jar can be made for any occasion. Its like a jar of reminders to boost ya up just when ya need it! A gift that is thoughtful, unique, and filled with greatness. Perfect gift for Mel as she left PDX–a little message from EVERYONE. A bunch of messages for her to read when the homesick feeling rolls around. The white cap was too plain I had to fancy it up with words and some colors. The cap with SIX words I felt was necessary for her new chapter: perseverance, resilient, believe, hope, faith, and love. Have fun creating your jar filled with messages for your love one. Please share if you do–I would love to see the jar you create.
