Mason Jar Crafts Book Giveaway

Publisher: Ulysses Press
Hello again Paper Pastries readers! My name is Lauren Donaldson from Lauren Elise Crafted and Cottage Journal and I am here again this week with some exciting news. My very first craft book Mason Jar Crafts is just getting released and Margaret was kind enough to let me share a few sneak peek images with you. I have always loved Mason jars and their timeless design and recently they have taken the design world by storm. No longer are these canning jars reserved for your kitchen but free to appear in your decor, parties, weddings, and homes. When creating this book, I envisioned each jar as a blank canvas and my goal has always been to encourage others to see Mason jars in the same light. The possibilities are truly endless!

Earlier this week I shared my Ball Wrapping Paper DIY which will give you an idea of what Mason Jar Crafts has to offer. There are 30+ unique projects inside that involve simple materials and techniques that crafters of all skill levels can tackle. If you find beauty in Mason jars, this book will have a lot to offer you. Here is a sampling of a few of my favorite projects:

  1. I use them as intended (boring, I know) to store homemade items in the fridge, like vinaigrette or simple syrup. I also like to use them when I make a bar during a party. Love the wrapping paper idea!

    1. Not boring at all! I use them in the kitchen all the time. I make my favorite homemade salad dressing in a Mason jar. And they are also my go-to for drink glasses. Great ideas!

  2. I want to use them for storage in my craft room and for leftovers - we are moving away from plastic to glass

    1. I want to get various vintage ball masons to use as drinking glasses. Super cheap and easy to replace should they break, and so interesting!

    2. Great idea Roxanne! I use Mason jars for drinking glasses all the time. They are super cheap and add such charm to the dinner table. And I've found they are really hard to break. The glass is so strong so you don't have to worry about them.

  5. We use them for everything...for lemonade at a summer dinner, for ice cream concoctions to give to our neighbors who look after our puppy, for spice mixes, etc!

    1. All fantastic ideas. You sound like a great neighbor to have! Ice cream in Mason jars? That's great incentive for puppy sitting :)

  6. Salad dressing, sauces, drinking glasses, storing craft supplies like buttons, etc. They are great for everything!

  7. Besides using mason jars for all my homemade jellys, I also have them hanging in the backyard with candles in them for a little night light for evening parties!

  8. I'd love to start using them as cups at parties. I especially like the portable mason jar cups that are all over pinterest these days. As of now I just use them to send my husband cakes in a jar when he's deployed.

  9. I just brought individual desserts in mason jars to a friend's bbq. Such a treat!
