Something special for someone special
American Greetings makes it easy to celebrate Valentine’s Day with that special someone in your life. My husband is my special someone this Valentine’s Day. He is my biggest supporter and is what keeps our family going each day…he is one of my greatest blessings and I am forever grateful for him. We’ve been married for 7 years and this past year he helped me make a positive life-changing decision to quit my day job to be a stay-at-home-mom and become a full-time blogger. Without his support, you would not be reading this post 😉
I wanted to give him a romantic Valentine’s Day card and came across the perfect “masculine” card from American Greetings. After looking at countless cards (and standing in the greeting card aisle for 30 minutes!), this one was the one that stood out. It said everything I needed to say to my amazing hubby.

I came across another Valentine card that was perfect to give to a family member so I grabbed that one as well. Wishing someone a Happy Valentine’s Day is a simple way to brighten their day 🙂 I also picked up some heart stickers because, well, you can never have too many stickers (hehe) and how cute would these look to decorate the envelopes?
When I got home I decided to make the hubby a little treat to go with his card. He loves gummy bears so I painted some small mason jars using the American Greetings heart stickers as a stencil and added the gummy bears and a love tag (an American Greetings free printable that you can find the link to below).
How to make DIY Valentine Treat Jars:
- Small mason jars
- Paint (I used red, pink and white)
- Paint brush
- Painters tape
- Hole Puncher
- Twine or Ribbon
- American Greetings Heart Stickers
- American Greetings Gift Wrap/Bags
- Free Printable American Greetings tear-off love notes (get them here)
- American Greetings Valentine Cards
I found the perfect American Greetings Valentine’s Day cards, stickers, and gift wrap at my local Walmart store.
This project was super easy to complete and I found everything I needed in one trip to the store.
To find a store near you that sells American Greetings products, go HERE 🙂
- Wrap the top of each mason jars with painters tape.
- Place a heart sticker on each side of each mason jar to create your heart stencil.
- Paint the entire jar.
- Carefully remove the heart sticker before the paint dries. I have a weeding tool that I use to easily grab the sticker but if the paint gets smudged, just use a cotton swap to fix or carefully scratch the paint off after it dries.
- Let dry overnight. Remove the painter’s tape and add treats.
- Cut the Free Printable American Greetings tear-off love notes. Hole punch the corner of each and string twine or ribbon through.
- Hole punch the corner of each love note and string twine or ribbon to tie around the neck of each jar. I used the yellow love note on the white jar, the pink love note on the pink jar, and the red love note on the red jar (which coordinated perfectly!).
- Place each jar in the American Greetings gift bag or wrap with gift wrap/tissue paper.
BAM! You have a super cute, inexpensive, and thoughtful gift to give to your sweetheart 🙂
I plan to give the red jar with gummy bears and the romantic Valentine card to the hubby for Valentine’s Day. I added a heart sticker to the lid of each jar too 😉
He loves gummy bears so I added my own handmade gift tag that says “I love you BEARY much” using one American Greetings heart sticker. I attached the tag to the gift bag by folding down the top, hole punching the ends together, and using twine to tie the top closed.
These treat jars make a cute gift for anyone. I love the simple American Greetings card below that can be given to a neighbor, a friend or a teacher.
Other ideas to use these Valentine treat jars:
- Use as decor in your home during Valentine’s Day (perfect for tea lights or flowers)
- Give to teachers, co-workers or a friend
