Directions:

1. Begin by cutting a strip of paper to fit around your jar. Simply cut, wrap, and make any necessary trims to the paper so that it fits well. Remove the strip from the jar.
2. In the middle of the strip, gently bend it in half. Bend it gently, do not press on the crease. Cut a heart half out of the paper on the bend, so that when you open it up the heart shape will be present.  Remove and discard the paper heart clipping as you won’t need it further.
3. Wrap the strip back around the jar and secure it with glue. You should now be able to peek through the heart and into the jar.
4. Finish by wrapping a length of ribbon or twine around the top of the jar. Tie to secure.
5. Place a votive in the jar and light it up. You will see the glow coming through the heart perfectly!
