Valentine's Day Pin Cushion

Mason Jar Pin Cushion Portrait

Our design team member Mae Armstrong was looking for a quick gift for Valentine's Day and came up with this super cute mason jar pin cushion.  I love the homemade gift, it's perfect for anyone you know that's crafty or likes to sew.

Mae started by cutting natural fabric around the lid of the mason jar. She used the "Muah!" stamp from PSA Essentials Smile Peel & Stick pack. She stamped the word all around the trimmed fabric in holiday red ink by PSA Essentials.  Then she glued the fabric to the cover of the lid.  She left a small opening to fill with fiber.  Once done, she glued the opening shut to secure.

Then she inserted the prepared cushioned lid inside the ring.

To make this a complete gift, she added a variety of embroidery floss, needles, buttons, beads and a small pair of scissors.

She secured the lid and wrap with a decorative ribbon. Then she added a simple gift tag (cut into the shape of a heart) with the matching sentiment.
