LOVE NOTES GIFT SET | with Shellye

Who doesn't love cute, tiny jars? I found this duo at Target and fell in love with the sweet heart print on the lids!  Wanting to include the two jars together as a gift set, I even made a carrier box for them!

To get started, I used a large scallop and circle die to create the lid toppers.  I embellished with various die-cuts, doodle pop blue birds and enamel shaped hearts.

The jars measured 3.5" in diameter so to create the box I cut a piece of 12X12 paper down to 7" X 11" and scored (7") at 2" and 5"and the (11") at 2" and 9".  Next, I cut the square pieces along the four corners to make the flaps.  To the (inside) bottom of the box, I cut a piece of cardboard and covered with matching paper.  For the paper handle I doubled a strip of 1.5"X12" paper and attached with very strong adhesive tape.

The front of the box was simply decorated with a handcrafted bow with a large doodle button in the center.

Because the jars are fairly deep I was able to tuck in fairly substantial items inside!  
For the first jar I added a mini flip-album:

I used a mini jar die from my stash to cut the page pieces from the pistachio cardstock. Die cut scalloped mats were cut from various patterns from the 6X6 paper pad. I embellished the pages with hand-stitched X's, as well as little stickers and enamels.

To the second jar I added COPIC colored tags, layered embellishment bits, clips and doodle twine!

Lastly, I tucked some white crinkle shred around the jars and it's ready for my Valentine ♥
