Gift in a Jar--Inspired By Pinterest

I recently attended my cousin's bride-to-be's bridal shower.  While I usually only shop the registry, I felt like branching out this time.  I was inspired by this post I found on Pinterest.  I went a little overboard and it took me quite some time to fit (almost) everything into the jar.  Here are some photos of what I included and the finished product.  
A shot of everything that was in the jar:  napkins (handmade), baker's
twine, plastic silverware, dishtowel, paper straws, note pad and pen,
cake tester, cookie cutters, ice cream scoop, cupcake liners,
mini spatula, microfiber cloth, monogrammed  dishcloths (why not!?), scrubbie, seeds, recipe cards, and thank you cards.  The recipe card maker 
is available at Skip-to-My-Lou.  I used some family recipes and a few of 
my favorites as well.

I added a chalkboard label and piece of chalk.  While my
intention was to use the jar as the wrapping, I ended up
buying a reusable shopping bag so that she could
open the gift and throw the contents into the bag.
It took me about a week to get almost everything to fit,
so I figured it would be easier this way.  The label and chalk
are Martha Stewart products available at Staples.
