Tips to Make this Date Night in a Jar

  • Be sure to print out your adorable Sculpting Our Love tag here!
  • Don’t try to over-stuff your jar. Just get a bigger one. Trust me, bigger is sometimes better–not always, but in this case, a bigger jar would be nice. LOL!
  • On date night, in order to make the heart sculpture, flatten clay and cut out heart shapes with the cookie cutter. Use toothpicks to secure the hearts together, molding the clay to fit each heart together. Flatten the side of the bottom heart so it will stand on its own. Use stamps to add a phrase or decoration to the hearts. Bake the clay according to package directions.
