It is no secret that I love putting things in jars but my friend Vanessa from See Vanessa Craft has taken jar crafts to a whole new level with her brand new book Party In a Jar! I have been reading Vanessa’s blog for YEARS and then met her in person three years ago when we were roommates at Snap Conference. We have been real life friends ever since and when I found out she was coming out with a craft book I was so excited because she always has the best and cutest ideas.
I pulled out the patriotic decorations a few days ago so it only seemed fitting that my kiddos and I whip up some Patriotic Popcorn Jars which Vanessa shares a tutorial for in Party in a Jar! The popcorn jars turned out awesome and I know exactly how I will use them during our Patriotic festivities this summer! The book also features fifteen other kid-friendly craft projects from edible dino terrariums to holiday-themed gifts and centerpieces.
What do you think of our Patriotic Popcorn Jars – pretty cool huh!?

Vanessa lives in the Arizona desert with her husband, Rich, and their two children. She has a master’s degree in Clinical Social Work and has experienced the therapeutic value of creativity firsthand.
To grab your very own copy of Party in a Jar you can purchase through Amazon or Gibbs Smith. I can’t wait to craft up some more jars with my kids over their Summer break! My oldest son says that we HAVE TO MAKE the Monster Slime Jars first! I personally can’t wait for them to create Grass Hair Funny Face Jars but there are so many great ideas I really don’t know where we should start!
