perfect mason

Sometimes wrapping paper just doesn't cut it! 
For Sara's birthday some girlfriends and I took her to yummy sushi for dinner 
and then all pitched in to get her a fun gift. 
I decided that the gifts should be put in Mason Jars. 
Best. Decision. Ever. 
Here's what we gave...
Scarf (yes, I had to SCRUNCH it in there, but it was worth it) and candy. 
Make-up, gloves, candy and a pair of earrings. 
Socks and more candy. 
I ended up really loving the tops of the jars (silly, I know). 
The plaid one I LOVE combined with the white and navy fabrics, plus the burlap 
and then I wrapped the gold lid with white yarn... SIGH... it looked so cute. 
One more picture (all photos by Izzi Ray)...
Sometimes, it's fun to try and think outside the box... literally.

  1. I love you Carrie - you make me proud. Always remember - a creative mess is better that tidy idleness. That's me rationalizing your childhood.
