Baby Shower Favors~ from recycled baby food jars

ITS wonderful having a sister… especially when her baby is 5 months younger then yours… WHY? she saves the baby food jars for you… so you can use them as a baby shower favor.

She then brings them over and scrubs the jars inside and out. Rubbing her knuckles raw getting off all the stickies on the outside from the labels. She does this because she loves her big sister…. ME! love you Crystal so much. So my sis and I worked on these recycled baby food jars… a few weeks ago. I cut out a bunch of circles from the Platinum School book cartridge for my cricut, as well as flowers from the Accent Essentials cartridge. Then I got glueing, placing them on the lids, and filling them! SUPER EASY baby shower favor’s… and I personally think DARLING TOO! I mean how cute is it to recycle baby food jars???? for a baby shower! I THINK WAY CUTE!!! OK’ i really am not trying to brag or give myself credit.. just excited! The sis and I both agreed to show the “GERBER” name because its, after all…. A BABY FOOD JAR! I AM VERY EXCITED TO THROW MY FIRST BABY SHOWER APRIL 17th!

HERE are the tops!

Would love for you to link to the Celebration Inspiration Linky Party on April 6th if you get a chance. This is great inspiration for adorable favors! Thanks for sharing!

  8. CUTE, CUTE, CUTE! Love these! I’m so glad you stopped by my blog and left such a nice comment. SO SWEET! Thank you! As for the paint and color I used…I bought it at Walmart. The color was “Calypso Sky” I added just a small amount of “Antique White”. They are both acrylic craft paint. Then I just glazed them all with a small amount of black paint in water. Good Luck! Let me know when you make them! I want to see=)
