Cut out the mason jar from the printed paper.

At this point, you can either color in the letters and decorate the front of the card however you like, or cut the letters out of a second piece of printed cardstock and glue them on.  This part is up to you and your child!  Then cut the page to fit in the car behind the cutout mason jar.
