Jar of Hugs and Kisses

What parent wouldn’t like to be able to reach into a jar and get a hug or a kiss whenever they needed one. Now you can make it happen.


Pink and Red Acrylic paints Decorative Jar with lid (cork or screw)

For Baking Dough you Will need:
3 1/2 cups of flour
1 cup of salt
1 1/2 - 2 cups of water

Small heart shaped cookie cutter


Start by mixing your dry dough ingredients with a small amount of water. Your dough needs to be moist but not stick to your hands. Knead the dough until it is a soft smooth ball.

Roll out your dough and using  a heart shaped cookie cutter cut 3- 4 hearts out of the dough (make sure they are small enough to fit into your Jar bottle).

Set the hearts down onto a lined baking tray and proceed to cut out some X's for Kisses.

You can make a long roll of dough and cut it into lengths to form an X.

Place these onto the baking tray and place into a pre- heated oven (around 200'C) until the shapes are hard and golden.

Allow the shapes to cool.

Paint them using the acrylic paints.

We painted ours pink for the hearts and red for the kisses.

Once the paint has dried, place them into the jar and secure the lid.

It would be nice to tie a nice big bow of ribbon around the lid along with a small gift card saying  I Love You every day.

Our website was created by a mother and daughter team, adding a unique combination of crafting qualities and expertise of creativity. We started our website after numerous years in the area of craft, teaching, retail craft and owning a gift store. We decided to launch it to provide resources for teachers, therapists, and craft enthusiasts in the year 1999. Since then, the website has grown tremendously in terms of content and resource information.
