Love Jars Project Tutorial

Step 1 – Start by washing out your spice jars. We noticed there was a little dust in ours, so we cleaned them out — especially since food was going inside.

Step 2 – Once your jars are clean and dry, select two washi tapes to use. We wanted a unique and unexpected color palette, so we used a solid black washi tape with a set of complimentary black-and-white patterned tapes.

Step 3 – The Prime Marketing chalk journal note cards are a little too big for the jars, so we had to cut ours down to fit properly. The note cards are really elaborate, and they have a great vintage feel to them! It’s easy to select a portion and cut out a label without losing too many of the details. Remember to save your scraps of paper, these bits and pieces are great for mixed-media projects.

Step 4 – Next, brush some gel medium along the back of your labels and securely adhere them to your jars. We used a little washi tape to make sure the label was pressed flat against the jar until the gel medium dried. When the label is securely glued to the jar, pull your extra washi tape off gently to avoid ripping the label.

Step 5 – Use chalk or a white pen to write a sweet message on your label. You can personalize each love jar with a name or a special message. If you use chalk, you can easily erase the message and write something new. If you want something permanent, use a white pen.

Step 6 – Fill your love jars with a sweet treat. To pull in the normal Valentine’s Day colors, we decided to use some pink, white, and red M&M’s, but you can use whatever you like and whatever fits.
