So this last Christmas, I decided it was a great idea to handmake a lot of my presents for people.
Just wow guys. What a lot of hard work (especially as I love being creative but rubbish at it!)
One of the ideas I came across is having a Happy Jar. I made two for two friends and they are a great idea to boost your self esteem when you are low.
All you need is coloured card cut into cards, a fancy swishy pen, some glitter, and a cute container (I used an old fashioned sweet jar!).
I proceeded to write down quotes that have helped me, and left some blank, folded them up and with the glitter, popped them in the container! I used all different colours but really you can do them in your favourite colours, it really is so personal. Other things you can write are:
- Favourite songs
- A self-care prompt
- Leave them blank for writing your own quotes or ideas as you go along
- A funny story or joke
You can do so much with this and I am now hooked on making them. They look so pretty (see picture below)
Have you made one? Show me!
