You could do something like this in the classroom and have kids that would like to bring in a quote for a quote of the week can put it in there. It would give everyone a chance to put a little something that they thought would be a cool for the class. I think this would be really fun and exciting to get to contribute!!
A great gift idea! Get a bunch of quotes and color code them based on what they are about. Mod podge a key on the inside of the mason jar, fold the quotes and put them in. Finally, top it off with a cute ribbon and any other decorations you want :) Your friend is sure to love it!! -DK
