You will need
• An old Kilner jar or washed-out jam jar
• Leftover wrapping paper or coloured card to make the message scrolls
• Thin ribbon (3mm wide)
• Thick ribbon (1cm wide)
• Hole punch
• Glue stick or self-adhesive sticker paper
• Printable jar labels – download here
Cut out a series of rectangular pieces of leftover wrapping paper or coloured card to create the scrolls.
Hole punch each scroll on the left hand side.
Write a thoughtful note on each scroll.
Take a 20cm length of thin ribbon, fold it in half and loop through the hole, pulling the ends of the ribbon through the loop to secure the ribbon.
Using a pencil for guidance, roll each scroll around the pencil and towards the ribbon, then secure it with a bow. Remove the pencil.
Download and print the jar labels on to plain A4 paper (or self-adhesive label paper), and cut out your chosen label.
Write a message on the label. We’ve written ‘You’re the best because...', but you could write anything you wish.
Stick the label onto the jar.
Fill the jar with the pre-made scrolls before closing and tying a thick ribbon around the lid. Give to mum for Mother's Day or to a loved one as a sentimental handmade gift.
