DIY: craft kit


when i first spotted this sewing/craft kit at anthropologie
i thought it was super cute but something i could easily recreate
(and for half the price!)


you will need:
a mason jar
a piece of fabric cut into a square approximately 8X8 inches
happy tape 
twine/yarn/ribbon
crafting goodies
(mine included these items but you can use whatever you want)
measuring tape
some sewing pins
vintage buttons
pretty fabric tape


i put all the craft goodies into the mason jar
placed the square fabric on top and secured with the lid
tied some twine around the lid
added a key to make it extra pretty


and tada! 
your very own anthro-esque craft kit!



super duper easy to make and so easy to personalize
make a baking themed one for the baker in your life
or one filled with yarn and knitting notions for the knitter you know
or one filled with beauty products for the beauty product junkie in your life

makes a sweet thank you gift or hostess gift too!

Great idea, and very doable! Looks like it doesn't take much time, and think of all the money saved from making this kit yourself!
