Journal Jars

I had the opportunity to finish up a couple gifts for my middle sister and her hubby. I made them each a journal jar. I have made several in the past and they were hits. I used the journal prompts from Organized Christmas. I love this site.
For each journal jar I printed out the 38 pages of prompts (6 prompts per page) and then made a few of my own. Then came the chore of cutting each of them out. I used my paper cutter to do this. Then, I folded each one. It was unbelieveable that I could fit that big pile of prompts into those jars.

I bought journals and included a glue stick in the jar. That way they can glue the prompt at the top of the page and journal below it. OrganizedChristmas even included a label with instructions.

It seems I almost didn't get the tops of the jars in the photo, but here it is. I used a floral fabric for my sister's journal jar and added ribbon. For her husband's journal jar I used a piece of Western themed fat quarter by Moda that I received in an online swap years ago. I don't know the name of the design. He loves to read Westerns and this fabric always reminds me of him.

These gifts and the pillowcases for my daughter are now in the mail!
