Last Friday, May 23, 2014 marked our 3 years anniversary ! My boyfriend and I have been dating since May 23, 2011. This year instead of buying a gift, I decided to make something that is unique & homemade. I thought the best gifts are made from the heart and because it is one of a kind and all about him. I decided to make an ” I love you jar” for my boyfriend. There are 100 notes in the jar. All of the notes that I wrote were motivational & inspirational quotes, “I love you because….”, and notes about how he makes me feels every single day.
It is very simply to make. All you need:
- 1 Mason Jar
- 100 note tags (The note tags comes in packs of 25, I recommend getting Five packs of note tags)
- red ribbons/streamers (you can get any color ribbon of your choice)
- tacky glue
- red heart stickers
- Fabric tulle (you can get any color of tulle of your choice)
- a pen
ALL of these materials you can get them at any regular arts & craft stores!
To my lovely and handsome boyfriend,
May 23rd, 2011 was the day when my whole life had changed completely. It’s when you enter in my life. It’s when you open a new door in my heart and allow me to be your girlfriend. I never had a long term relationship. I can’t believe we’ve been dating for 3 years. I always dream of being with someone who treats me like a princess and is willing to accepts my mistakes and flaws. I am so grateful to have you in my life. A moment knowing you is better than a lifetime of never knowing you. When I’m feel lost and lonely, you are my compass and my truth north. You guide the way. When my days are bad that’s when I need you the most. And you know that I will do the same for you. I promise because that’s what girlfriends and boyfriends do. Thank you for being in my life. You’re the most important person in my life. Happy anniversary !! I love you!
