Hearts in a Jar (a very creative name that I came up with) is mostly heart-shaped origami where I wrote messages in, and then placed in a jar.

It’s a very simple task, but it does mean a lot to the receiver if you put your entire heart into the project (or at least it did)! The heart origami that I made came from the tutorial here by Craft TV (Jessica). It seems intimidating at first, and I had a hard time getting it right, but after a lot of concentration and patience, I managed to make one! After that, it was far easier out of muscle memory.

The mason jar that I got was quite big as well, so I could fit thirty-five hearts in it. I also used two colours (red and pink) to make it seem more vibrant and not too dull.unspecified

I covered the top of the mason jar with black paper so that I could write on it, and it turned out quite well! I’m really happy with the result, and my boyfriend seemed to really like it!

This was probably my most original and creative endeavour, so don’t expect better crafts in the future.
