Confession. Sometimes I struggle with blogging. It’s not that I don’t enjoy it. I totally do! I have goals of posting twice a week, and sometimes even three times a week. While if I get ahead of the game and get projects, photos, and posts done before the day I want them to post (totally me last week, it was awesome!) it works great. BUT, if I don’t get ahead of it, then I get stressed about getting photos edited and posts written. Creating is the fun part and one I enjoy. It is just hard sometimes to keep up with the goals I’ve set for myself. So this morning, I find myself writing this post, rather than having it done and written and scheduled to post. More than 10 years ago when I first started blogging, it was the norm to write a post and publish it then. I don’t even know if there was an option to schedule a post. Things sure have changed when it comes to blogging! 🙂 Anyway, I suppose you probably aren’t here to read all about that. I do have this fun little project to share with you today. I had so much fun putting this Valentine Prescription for Love Gift Idea together. I was going to make a printable, but my printer started giving me some grief, so I decided I’d use some fun vinyl, a pen, and my Cricut to create this! You could easily do it with just cardstock though.

Valentine Prescription for Love Gift Idea Supplies:
- Cricut Maker or Cricut Explore Air 2
- Black Cricut Pen
- Sweet Hearts – Mini Adhesive Vinyl Pack (They also have a similar HTV pack.)
- Gray Cardstock
- Mini Jars
- Valentine M & M’s
- Design Space Cut File (If you have Cricut Access, all these images are free.)
Once you open up the Design Space Cut File, you just need to cut the designs. If you’re using the same jars I used (linked above), then these will fit. If you’re using different jars, then you can adjust the file to fit the size of your jar.
Send your design to be cut on the Cricut. I cut the cardstock and wrote the words with the pen. Then I cut the vinyls, making sure to change the material being cut between each layer.
While I was cutting the different layers, I filled up my jars with M & M’s
Once I had everything cut, I needed to weed the designs. I used my favorite weeding tools to do that.
Once the designs were weeded, I grabbed some transfer tape. I was able to reuse the same piece of transfer tape for putting all three of these together.
I placed the Love cut from adhesive foil first.
Then I placed the hearts.
Once the labels were all put together, I was ready to put them on the jars. I placed adhesive on the back of the label and adhered it to the jar full of M & M’s.
I just wrapped it around making sure it was stuck good. You may need to use a stronger adhesive to make sure the labels are on there really good, or just seal the end with a little bit of hot glue.
Once I had the label on, I added some ric rac ribbon to the top.
Once that ribbon was tied on, my cute little Valentine Prescription for Love Gift Idea was finished!
Aren’t these the cutest little medicine jars? 😉
It is hard to see the sides when just looking from the front. This is the left side of the label.
This is the right side.
Not only is the label and ribbon on the outside so fun, but I really love what the Valentine M & M’s add as well!
Isn’t this Valentine Prescription for Love Gift Idea perfect to give to a significant other?
Isn’t the shimmery and patterned vinyls so fun?!
I think these little jars full of candy could be used in different ways as well. What other kind of labels do you think you could put on a little jar like this for Valentine’s day?
