I know you all have mason jars looking for a new home so today I'm sharing how to build your own diy mason jar tote.  We actually built these totes during the Make & Take class I taught with Jen from House of Wood at the Haven Conference so I thought I would share the plans with everyone.

Here we are with all the completed totes:
