A Jar of Nothing

A Jar of Nothing Gift

Time Taken: < 30 minutes

Materials: Empty Jar
Sticky Label Paper
or Paper and Clear Glue Instructions:
For this project all you need is a empty jar.

You can print this saying out onto some adhesive label paper suitable for your printer or print it onto normal plain paper and using some Clear Craft glue adhere it to the Jar yourself.

If you want to go all out you can add some ribbon to the Jar and even Box it up for a Great Gag Gift.


--The Saying---

Did you say nothing?
When you were asked what you wanted for
Birthday,Anniversary,Graduation or Christmas.
Don't remember saying NOTHING
Well this time someone heard you, searched
high and low and found this perfect gift for you.

Note: These are great for Christmas Fundraising stalls.

"NOTHING" is David's answer everytime
we ask him what he wants.

I've got an empty jar on the counter and will be pasting a label on!
Thanks for the idea Mish.

this would also be handy if you're hosting a Holiday Party:

When the inevitable "party pooper" arrives, and you ask what he/she would like to eat or drink, and they reply, "oh, Nothing for me, thanks".

You, the Host with the Most, can say, "yep! I have that! Be right back!"

...and present Mr/Ms Pooper with a Jar of Nothing (and maybe a cocktail napkin).

i've heard that before, in a plastic surgeon's office, during rhinoplasty...

as far as the jar goes, look on the bright side. at least you get a good storage container to put your change in for return presents to that person...

reminds me of the saying, "when I get around to it."

Somewhere out in the universe I saw some entreprenuer marketing these thingies that looked like a circular, flat, rubber jar opener. Voila -- a round Tuit!
