This is what your finished mystery date jar will look like, once you have followed this easy step by step tutorial below.
For this DIY, you will need: - Some flash cards (The more you have the more dates will be in the jar)
- A glass or plastic jar
- Some coloured pencils of your choice
- A regular pen
- One piece of double sided sticky tape
Step 1: Cut your flash card around about 1.5cm strips
Step 2: one date idea per piece of card
Step 3: Decorate the strips however you feel like - As you can see mine have a polka dots and hearts theme
Step 4: Now fold you card into three sections, so the writing is hidden. If you like you can draw a little doodle on the front like I did.
Once you have finished folding, they should all look like this.
Step 5: Now it's time to fill your glass jar up with the ideas
You can leave it like this, alternatively ....you could add a label
Step 6: Take the left over scraps of flash card, cut the card to size, decorate and place on your jar with one single piece of double sided sticky tape. Place it on your jar and you have a cute little label.
And there you have it one of the most simplest and quickest DIY's you could ever do with no mess and no fuss. You won't ever have to think of date again. Alternatively you could do this with your children and put play dates in jar and let them pick one out when they've been good.
That's all for now,
