What You Will Need

  • Mason jar
  • Cricut Printable Vinyl
  • Cricut machine
  • Boredom jar printables
  • Scissors


  • Upload the jar labels to Cricut Design Space. Be sure to use the PNG image and pick complex when uploading. Turn the surrounding area to checked when uploading then save as a print then cut. The video above shows you how to do all of this with a screenshot if you are confused.

  • Once you have uploaded your design, insert it onto your canvas, and resize to fit your jars. Then click "make it" and you will be prompted to print. Remember that a box will print around your labels and if you have the bleed option selected there may be a fuzzy area around the circles. That is okay! Once printed, pick Cricut Printable Vinyl from the list of materials to cut.

  • Your machine will use the black box to locate the cuts and cut around the circles of the labels. You will also need to print the list of boredom busters to add to your jars. I just printed these onto regular copy paper and cut them with scissors. Remember, you can also print these jar labels onto paper and tape or glue them to your jar if you don't want to use the printable vinyl.

  • Then just peel and stick the labels into place on your mason jar. I like to use a jar that has at least one smooth side when doing projects like these.

  • Cut the family activities into individual pieces before adding them to your jar. You will also want to remove any activities that you either don't want to do or cannot do.

  • Then just fold your boredom busters and add them to your jar. The next time you hear "I'm bored" just send them to the jar to pick something fun to do!
