During a pre-holiday dinner, on what happened to be the one and only snow day of the year, my friend J had a heartwarming project idea. Throughout the year, we would write down all our happy moments and place them in a jar. In the following year, we would share our jars and reflect on what a great year it was. Amazing, right?

Being a bit obsessed with paper, I decided to make a box of blank paper slips for everyone to write on.

I taped a piece of ribbon underneath each pile of paper to make it easier to pull out a sheet.

The glass jar (purchased from West Elm Market) and box of paper all ready to give. Red twine and kraft - a classic combination.
