photo 2I can agree with the general consensus that I spend too much money on my crafts, especially when sometimes I am not exactly prompt to get them done. For example, when I saw my friend Megan’s handmade embossed stationary, I decided that I HAD to have a heat embosser and make my own. The embosser still sits in its box. The lesson to be learned- use a hand basket at Michaels- not a cart.

So, when I decided to shell out $15 for a mason jar stamp (seriously? Am I in the wrong business? Is all of the profit margin in stamps and other mason jar themed accessories?), I was determined to use it every chance I got. And since mason jars are the official mascot of the Millennial wedding, it has gotten its fair share of use.

At the shower, I stamped on ivory card stock and left them out for each guest to write Rosie a little note, which they then put in- you guessed it- a mason jar. I am doing the same thing for the upcoming rehearsal dinner, and we will leave one on each guest’s plate so they can leave a wish or piece of marital advice for the couple. I also stamped individual treat bags filled with sprinkle dipped pretzels with the stamp, and stuck them in the party favor, little hand painted pots with succulents.

I imagine that this will not be the end of this happy relationship. If you have ideas for other uses, let me know in the comments!

  1. If it makes you feel better, I have only used the heat embosser once. Whoops.
