Manicure In A Jar

Last month was my sister's baby shower.  I already wrote about some of the cute favors (click HERE to check out that post) so today I'm finally getting around to sharing the cute prizes I made up.   I decided to use mason jars to create a "manicure in a jar".   This isn't an original idea.  I got my inspiration from Pinterest and just tweaked it to make it for a baby shower.

Since my sister is having a girl, I tried to find things that were pink or in pink wrapping to place in the jar.  I added a manicure set, tissues, hand sanitizer, gum and nail polish.  

The invitations were cut out like a baby onsie so I used that idea to create a tag to place on the mason jar.

I also spray painted the tops of the mason jars pink to pretty them up.

I also added some cotton balls at the bottom to keep things in place.  

You could easily change out the color scheme and put blue items inside for a boy baby shower.  Maybe not blue nail polish, but clear nail polish and blue gum, blue tissues, a blue lid and tag.  That would be cute too.  And let's not stop at baby shower gifts, because you could use this as a Mother's Day gift or a Teacher gift too.
