Bernardin – The Perfect Crafting Toolkit! #FMEGifts #Giveaway

BernardinGone are the days when mason jars would be used solely for home canning!  This holiday season, take these timeless pieces and transform them into perfect decorations and even gifts!  Candleholders, flower vases, light fixtures – the possibilities are endless!  

Bernardin has many products that are great to give to a crafter or for a crafter to put together handmade, unique gifts.  I was sent what is truly the ultimate crafting toolkit from Bernardin including a Gift Jar Kit, Decorative Mason Jars, Parowax and Limited Edition Blue Vintage Jars!


The Gift Jar Kit includes 8 cloth lid covers, 8 “To:/From:” labels, 8 “A Gift For You!” hang tags, Stretch loops and Ribbon rolls all neatly packaged inside a 1 Litre mason jar.  This kit makes it easy to dress up and decorate your canning creations for the perfect personalized gift.  I used my kit to package up homemade gifts of “cookies in a jar”.  It was easy to do since everything I needed to package my gifts was included in the kit!

The Bernardin Decorative 250 mL Jars come in a box of 12,  along with standard mouth snap lids, and 12 decorative labels.  The jars have a textured decorative surface featuring different fruits along with a smooth area perfect for the labels.  These jars would be great for candles, decorations and for gifting preserves.

The Parowax included will be perfect for making my own candles with the Decorative Jars.  I can’t wait to get started as I’ve always wanted to try and make my own!  Parowax is a highly refined paraffin wax for sealing jars and for home candle making.  I think some homemade candles would also make for great homemade gifts your friends and loved ones will appreciate!

I really love Bernardin’s new Limited Edition Blue Vintage Jars, they are so beautiful and unique. These jars celebrate the history of home canning and mark the 100th anniversary of the first true “Perfect Mason” jar.  They feature a period-inspired blue colour and vintage-inspired packaging.  They make it easy to add a retro look to your centrepieces, hanging lanterns, flower vases and more!
