My daughter loves writing stories. Ever since she was in Kindergarten she would sit down with a notebook and write the most creative stories. Over the years, I have loved reading her stories and have saved many of them to give to her when she is married. Now that she is getting older I wanted to make her a gift that would help give her “Inspiration” in writing her stories. The Inspiration Jar is packed full of lots of different items to help inspire her in her writing. The Inspiration Jar is meant to work by sparking an idea from something she she inside the jar. If she chooses something that starts with the letter L, is the color green or a little toy dinosaur, she can incorporate those things into her story writing. I tried to include lots of different kind of items so she could have a different story, every time.

Ideas to include in your Inspiration Jar:
Button (multiple in different colors)
The best thing about this, is that every single item I found in my house. When making your Inspiration Jar, check all of your junk drawers (we all have them) and you will be amazed at all of the treasures you can find! I loved including things with many colors so she could get inspired by colors, too. Not just items. Store all of your items in a Mason Jar. I got the adorable daisy lids on Amazon. If you have a Cricut Machine, you can use black vinyl to cut out Inspiration Jar and add it to your Mason Jar.
