Valentine Jars




HELLO!  Gosh Darn it it has been too long!


But the kids and I wanted to say hello.  We are once again making Valentine Jars for  the people we love and appreciate!


We kept them so fun and simple this year so that the kids could make them themselves!



We just save jam and sauce jars and then take a trip to the store and pick out all kinds of little goodies to put inside.



We fill the jars with candy, punch circles out of card stock, and tie them on with ribbon or this year we used bakers twine.




We like to take a look at what kinds of candy are inside and think of a clever saying to write on the tags.


We made a tag for the jar on the left that contained Hershys Hugs & Kisses and Chocolate Covered Gummy Bears that said:


Happy Valentines Day!

Bear hugs and kisses,

Trey, Lucy, & Charlotte


The jar in the right has Tootsie Rolls and Hershys Kisses in it, and the tag reads:

Hey Toots,
Hope you have a Wonderful Valentines Day!

Kisses,

Trey, Lucy, & Charlotte





The kids made these for their teachers.

Trey picked Sour Patch Kids & Strawberry Whoppers.
He wrote on the back of his tag:


You are a Whopper of a teacher.  Thanks for putting up with us Sour Patch Kids!





Here's a very simple idea we came up with using a package of Valentines Peeps:

"Happy Valentines Day to some of our favorite PEEPS."

 Happy Valentines Day
and don't forget to save your jars!

Great post! I?m just starting out in community management/marketing media and trying to learn how to do it well - resources like this article are incredibly helpful. As our company is based in the US, it?s all a bit new to us. The example above is something that I worry about as well, how to show your own genuine enthusiasm and share the fact that your product is useful in that case. Casino Online 338A
