DIY Inspirational Quote Jar

I'm still on my inspirational kick! When I was a kid I used to keep all of my fortunes from the fortune cookies I ate. I'd put them in this cute little box and pick out different ones all the time. It was fun to read them and see if they applied to the question I asked, or the way I was feeling. This DIY is a more modern version of that idea.

You may also want a book of quotes, New Year's resolutions, or a list of goals you're wanting to accomplish. 

1. Tie the ribbon in a bow around the mason jar.
2. Cut the excess ribbon at an angle.
3. Take the colored paper strips, and make sure they're about the width of your thumb. 
4. Write inspirational quotes, or goals on each strip of paper. Then fold them up.

Boom! You're done! Whenever you're feeling down you can always reach into your jar for a little pick-me-up. My quotes in the picture above say:

"Never give up until you've given out your very best. It's better to fail trying than wondering what could have happened if you tried."

"Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain."

"All of our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them."
