Jar of Gems

I made this jar for my friends (postnatal) baby shower. Decorated this preserving jar with cosmo cricket paper and my goreous new Martha stewart punch! Sweet little ladybirds andprimas, added ribbon and a label on the top saying Preserved Pearls of Wisdom. Inside I made a good hand full of origami stars, which made my thumb and finger hurt after a while from all the squeezing and pinching that is involved! Then got her friends to right choose a bible text and write words or encouragement and advice, cut them up into little scrolls and added them to the jar. People wrote such lovely things- I wanted to keep the jar for myself!
