  • Mason Jar
  • Letter stickers or craft Vinyl
  • Printable list of date ideas
  • Scissors or cutter

Create your date jar:

  1. Print the sheet of date ideas or come up with your own
  2. Use scissors or a paper cutter to cut individual pieces (I designed the printable to work easy with paper cutter)
  3. Fold the pieces and place them in the jar
  4. Using a vinyl cutting machine cut out “date jar” or use letter stickers and attach them to the jar
  5. I had some adhesive craft paper and cut it into a circle to put on the lid of my jar to add a little extra flair.

Now make a plan, choose a date and make some memories!
