You'll Need:
— Jar
— Trip mementos
— Label
 
Instructions:
1. Create a scene inside the jar using trip mementos.
2. Stick label of the place you visited on the inside or outside, you're done!

Turn Your Mason Jars Into an Herb Garden

Turn Your Mason Jars Into an Herb Garden

Herbs are always better fresh, and they don't even require a green thumb to be grown at home! Jessica Hord put together an awesome tutorial on making herb gardens out of mason jars. The genius of Hord's mini-gardens? They don't just bring fresh herbs into the home, they also make beautiful decorations.   You'll Need: -- Mason jar(s) -- Chalk paint (not chalkboard paint) -- Plastic wrap -- Multi-purpose painter's tape -- Spray paint -- Sealer/finisher spray (optional) -- River rocks -- Herb(s) of your choice -- Potting soil -- Mason jar handle accessory (make sure they'll fit your jar, different brands fit differently) --  Tag    Instructions: 1. Remove lid (discard inner lid) and paint the outside of the jar with chalk paint. 2. Decide how big you'd like your bottom strip and use plastic wrap and painter's tape to mark off the rest of the jar. Make sure the bottom of your painter's tape is secure against the jar. You will not have a sharp line otherwise. 3. Spray the bottom of the jar and the outer lid with paint. Spray the entire jar with sealer/finisher if you'd prefer the jar not to distress any further. 4. Fill the bottom fourth of the jar with river rocks. 5. Put herb inside jar, adding more soil if you need it. 6. Secure handle around jar and finish with tag. You're done! Inspired by: Sincerely, Sara D. View Now

Message In A Bath Bomb

Message In A Bath Bomb

Valentine's Day is coming up and we know some of you need to come up with something special for your significant other. Not to worry, our very own Quipid has got you covered! Jessica Hord has found a way to make bath bombs with a custom love message inside.   You'll Need: — 1 cup baking soda  — 3/4 cup corn starch — 1/4 epsom salt — 1/2 cup citric acid — 1/4 cup water — food dye (Jessica used 14 drops of red.) — essential oil (Jessica used 20 drops of rose.) — Silicone mold (Jessica used a heart mold.) — foam sheet (Jessica used dark pink.) — waterproof marker (Jessica used red.)   Instructions: 1. Cut hearts from foam sheet (make sure they are small enough to fit in your mold while still allowing space around the edges) and write messages on them. Set aside.   2. Whisk together baking soda, corn starch, epsom salt and citric acid.    3. Pour water, dye and oil into a spray bottle and whisk into mixture, using only a few sprays at a time between whisking.    4. Once your desired color is achieved, test to see if it packs. You can do this by grabbing a handful and squeezing. If it doesn't pack, continue to whisk in sprays of water solution until it packs.   5. Once the mixture passes the pack test, spoon into mold and, using fingers, pack the mixture into the mold. Stop once the mold is half full.   6. Put foam heart messages side down in the mold and fill mold to the top with mixture and pack.   7. Once packed, let molds sit overnight, then pop them out and gift. You're done!   Inspired by: Playdough to Plato   View Now
