The first step for assembly is to stuff the goodies into the jars.  This takes some planning and coordination.  A long pencil can help with shuffling items around and getting them to fit.

I designed some labels to print off and put on the jars.  You can print these labels out, free of charge, if you would like to make your own jars.  The first one is has the wording on the ovals and the second is blank so you can add whatever you want.  I think I made the images large enough that you should just be able to print them from clicking on the image.  My printer just ran out of ink so I can't test it but if it doesn't work just let me know and I can add a Google Doc or email you the file.

***update December 2011***

1)  Right click on the image above of the label you want and choose "Open Link In A New Window".  It should open the labels in a new browser window.  From that browser window, you can right click and choose "Save Image As" to save the labels to your computer.  Then, just print them from your computer.

2) I have created a Google Doc for each of the label files so you can download and print them from there:

Okay, second issue...some people have had questions about how to add their own wording to the blank labels.  Just download the file to your computer and then open it in a photo editing program and add the words.  Picnik is a great FREE online photo editing program, if you do not have one to use already.

I cut out the labels and using Elmer's CraftBond Glue Spots #GlueNGlitter in the thin small style, I attached the long strip to the back of the jar.

Then, using more glue spots, I wrapped the strips around the jar.  The 2 ends don't meet but that is okay because the oval will cover the opening.

Using more of the glue spots, I attached the oval label.

Here are some more fun ideas we came up with for jars:

You get the idea!  This gift can be for teens, moms, kids, friends or anyone else.  Just customized the jar to the recipients tastes!  It is fun to try to find mini items that will fit in the jars!
