Steps

  1. Unscrew the lid from a small preserve jar. Remove the flat inner part and cover with floral paper. Allow to dry. Print ‘Memories of 2016’ onto white card and cut out with a label die. Stick onto a larger floral label, then fix to the front of the jar.
  2. Cut out flowers from assorted papers and use a hole punch to create discs for their centres. Stick the blooms across the side of the jar and on the label. Screw the lid onto the jar, wrap ribbon around it and tie in a bow.
  3. Cut small rectangles of white paper and write memories on them. Roll up and secure with twine, then pop in the jar. If making the project as a gift, you may wish to leave this step to the recipient.

Tip: use a skewer or knitting needle to help roll up the small pieces of paper
