Today I have a quick, fun, idea for a Mason Jar gift for you! I took a plain Mason Jar and dressed it up a bit by adding an easy to make paper flower! I filled mine with jelly beans but you could use any candy that you like.  It makes an easy gift for neighbor, friend or teacher!

I added a little “you are sweet as honey” sticker to the front of the jar.

There is a chart on the front of the punch board that will tell you what size to cut your paper for an XS flower. In my case it was 2 1/4″ x 9″

Repeat until you’ve punched the entire paper.

Use the flower stem kit and attach a flower center, back and stem to the paper flower. I added an adhesive dot to the center of the flower for an extra little bit of color.

To attach the flower to the Mason Jar… using a crop a dile punch a hole in the center of the Mason Jar lid. You’ll need to punch it a few times to make the hole big enough to feed the flower stem through.
