Day 4 of our week of LOVE countdown: to view all the days check out my preschool blog here
there are also links at the bottom for days 1, 2 and 3!
So in my last post I told you I was working on some super cute packaging to hold our homemade play-dough that were giving out to a few friends for Valentine's day. This post has a lot of pictures but I just love how they came out*
So I really wanted to buy mason jars but I'm trying to be very frugal so this is what I stared out with.
I saved a few jars and our formula cans, I spray painted the tops with chalkboard paint.
For the jars I cut the middle out of a heart shaped doily and wrapped twine around it. Aren't they cute?** I wrote on the tops with chalk.
For the formula cans I cut 12x12 scrapbook paper to fit, glued it with scrapbook glue, wrapped them with doilies and twine.
The best part about this.....I didn't spend a penny*
Tomorrow we will fill them with our pink and purple homemade play-dough and bring them to our friends.
