What you’ll need
- Mason jars with lids
- Pink nail varnish
- Cotton balls
- Nail clippers
- Hand lotion miniatures
- Nail files
- Nail buffers

- Shredded packing paper
Everything you need for this project can be bought from your local drug store, online at the handy links we’ve included above, or from Dollar Tree if you have an account with them.
You’ll need one of everything per guest.
Step 1: Prepare the Mason jar
Start by taking a Mason jar and removing the inner liner disc from the lid. The liner should just pop out easily. Discard all the lid liner discs, as you’re not going to need them.
Step 2: Add padding to the Mason jar
Now, place a few cotton balls into the jar so that it’s about half full. Don’t use too much cotton or you won’t have room for everything else! Tamp down the cotton balls.
Next, place a small amount of shredded paper packing on top of the cotton balls and tamp it down. You can use any color paper you like, but we think pastel pink or blue looks pretty!
Step 3: Replace the lid
Now, put the lid back onto the jar, allowing the nail file and cuticle stick to poke out of the top.
Step 4: Fill your jar with nail-care gifts
Finally, place each of your gifts into the jar, taking care to arrange each item so that the favor looks good from all sides.
And that’s it!
In just 15 minutes, you can create these inexpensive, super-pretty, practical party favors that make perfect gifts for your girl baby shower guests!
