Valentines Scrapbook in a Jar.

Introduction: Valentines Scrapbook in a Jar.

About: This box provides word's about me, myself and I.....For instance, My name is Amanda, but most people have adapted to calling me "Manda" (quotations added for dramatic effect.) as they seem to not posses the ...

So, You waited around last minute to find a gift for your love for V-day eh? A scrapbook you say!? I don't have time to make one of those!
Yes, yes you do. All it takes is a photo, some cutesy things, maybe a few feathers, a jar, and about 30 minutes. Tell me you at least aren't THAT last minute.

This is a cute little thing you can put together fairly quickly, and can find most of the supplies needed around the house (Although, I live in TN, so we have an abundance of mason jars sitting around for canning things from the garden.)

Step 1: What You Need

There are a few key items you will need, the rest is up to you.
Mainly, you need a Jar, or other clear container, and some feathers. Oh yeah, and a cute photo of the two of you. I used a photo of my grandparents, since I am making it for them.

Other things that would be cool to have are some favorite song lyrics (Perhaps what ya'll call "Our song")
Favorite quotes and/or lovey dovey quotes.
Any other mystical magical things you can think of to put in there. Use your imagination!

Step 2: Start With the Lid.

Though I suppose you could do this in whatever order you want, but, I am starting with the lid.

Step 3: Decorating the Outside of the Jar.

Yep, pretty self explanatory. Add whatever you like to the outside, in my case, I used random scrapbooking stickers that say things like "Love" and "Faith" and "Hope".

Step 4: Picture Time!

and anything else you would enjoy gluing on the inside of the jar.

Step 5: Add Feathers!

Any color you want. Why feathers? Well, they are soft, and wispy, and pretty to look at when shoved into a jar of love.

Step 6: Place Lid Back On.

Tie a pretty ribbon on it, Give to your love on V-day, receive hugs and kisses.
Happy Valentine's everyone!

    This is the most perfect gift ever. Do you think a guy would like it? It's very creative. Yay! By the way- your funny :3 Thanks! I'm voting for you!

    Depends on the guy, If he's a more romantic type (I.E surprises you with flowers, etc) then yes most likely, If it's a less romantci type and more of a manly man, you could always "man" it up a bit, paint around the lid instead of lace, Add some funny quotes or jokes into it, etc.

    Also, It would look really cool to add in some red feathers too! I would have in mine but I had none. :0(

    And thank you so much for your vote! :0D
