    Default punched tin ornament

    -Wide Mouth Kerr/Mason Jar lids
    -Small heart template (cut from 3x5 card)
    -Small roll of Scotch tape or double-sided sticky tape
    -Medium penny nail - you don't want anything that's too fat
    around. Penny nails tend to be long and skinny, perfect for this project.
    -Hammer
    -Old phone book, stack of newspapers or a couple of sheets corrugated board
    -Red 1/8" craft ribbon

    1. Secure heart template to the top of jar lid--I tend to center it over the embossed KERR/MASON with a small roll of Scotch tape or a square of double-sided tape. A heart measuring 2"wide and 1-3/" tall fits perfectly inside the lid.

    2. Carefully tap the nail trough the lid (be sure to do this on top of an old phone book, so you don't damage your work surface), spacing your holes evenly around the heart.
    3. Punch an extra hole to the top of the lid to tread your ribbon through. Tie off the ribbon and hang on the tree.
