bear hugs valentine jars

what's that?
you had a bad day?

awww :(
i'm sorry....... 

how's 'bout a give you a couple of these?
i made 'em just for you.

like this:

and spread the love.

yup a bunch just for you 
and anyone else who needs a bear hug. 

but there's one thing you gotta do...
i totally do not remember where i got these as i've had them awhile...maybe at a restaurant? or walmart? ugh. 
these senior moments kill me. 

but lookie, you can get them here!
and see,
you can also use any mini jar you have around. 
i do remember when i got the jars it was for the size and the lid and not the jam at all.
but the jam was pretty good too.
win win.

so let's fill 'em up ok?
it's a tiny enough treat, 
but pretty BIG on the thoughtful side.

there are 6 hugs in there.
one for Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

2 for Monday.

weekends are pretty much free hug days anyway.
now let's stick a mini label on top.

print some out 
by right clicking, save, and print.
they are teeny tiny mini labels 
but they have to fit the lid.
i used a 1 1/2 inch hole punch.

they say:
bear hugs for you/happy valentine's day
in 2 different fonts 
and one of the labels has a smiley face.

another says:
bear hugs
happy valentine's day
you gotta use your teeny tiny pen to write on it.

and the last is one you can use for any day not just for valentine's cuz it says:
cuz everyone needs a bear hug.

and you can always give a bunch away.

so c'mon and spread the tiny bear hugs.

i betcha you'll get a GIANT one back.
