baby whimsy jar
Baby whimsy jars are one of my favorite kinds of whimsy jars to put together. If you're new here, you're probably thinking, "What is a whimsy jar?" I'll tell you! A whimsy jar is . . . wait for it . . . a jar full of whimsy. ;) To make a whimsy jar you take a new or recycled jar and cute things to fill it up. That's it! Well, you could also decorate the jar if you'd like. A coordinating color painted lid is good enough for me! Because I'm a paper crafter, I typically fill my jars with paper crafting embellishments. Whimsy jars make adorable gifts, and can be personalized to your recipients likes and preferences though. For example, my daughters and I made kids' whimsy jars for a swap once. We filled the jars with kid appropriate things like flavored lip gloss, candy, a treasure catcher necklace, nail polish, etc. Check out those jars here. What I'm saying is though I'm a paper crafter, whimsy jars don't have to be limited to paper crafting embellishments. (Look at this guest room cart. How cute to put toiletries in a jar for guests!)
We were talking about baby whimsy jars (at least I was). I put this baby whimsy jar together for my cousin Marta. When her baby is napping, she can be scrapping. ;) (Who has been here long enough to remember that my blog's name used to be "Kids Napping? I'm Scrapping!?" lol. I don't talk about just paper crafting anymore. That's why I changed it).
I put this jar together Marta. I tried to include some of her favorite things: baby girl schemes, butterflies, purples, turquoise, yellows.
See the jar Marta put together for me here.

Thanks for stopping by! Happy Monday!
