I was in charge of my cousin sister’s bridal shower that was held a few months ago at our ancestral home in Alabama.

The last leg of the exercise was sending out invitation cards to the guests. Keeping in mind the growing trend of mason jars, we decided to make the cards the mason jar way. Although the tutorial I referred to from Crafts Unleashed was on making wedding cards, everything remained the same except for the writing.
