So, last week I showed you what I made for Mr Napping for our 5th wedding anniversary in two weeks. Don’t worry, he doesn’t read my blog so he’ll still be surprised. You should check that out if you’re looking for a gift for your someone special… Valentine’s Day is coming up (wink, wink).
If you’re looking for something a little less time consuming – because painting 52 little wood sticks was just that – you’ll love what I have for you today. I’ve been out of the printable scene for a while and I think this is a great little freebie to jump back in with. You’ll be able to make a gift for your someone special for practically FREE!
PRINTABLE DATE NIGHT JAR
– Free PDF of the Jar Label and Date Ideas.
– Glue or tape
– Baker’s Twine or other string (optional)
– Spray paint or scrapbook paper (optional)
1. Gather your jar and print off your printed PDF (just click the link above). I recommend printing these off on card stock for a sturdier hold up. You could use a Mason jar, a peanut butter jar you’ve cleaned out, or an old spaghetti sauce jar you’ve washed.
2. Cut apart the dates and the jar label with scissors or a paper cutter.
3. Fold the strips of paper and drop them in the jar. I found that folding them in fourths worked the best. They stuck together when I folded them in half and it was hard to pull out just one slip of paper.
4. You may want to spray paint the lid of your jar or cover it with scrapbook paper.
5. Tie your Baker’s twine around the jar and affix the label to your jar with tape or glue. You could even use clear contact paper for a more waterproof label.
