So I came up with the idea of treat jars. I found these canning jars for less then $9 for a case of them- giving me more money to spend on the treats. Went to Bj's and bought several bags of Dove, and Hershey's chocolates, then mixed them. I filled the jars with those chocolates- what teacher doesn't enjoy some chocolates!!
I started out with good intentions-was going to alter every three jars differently so that the teachers would be getting pretty unique jars, and I wouldn't get bored- BUT I ended up doing a few jars different- then having to just finish the rest the same as I needed to get them done, and just wasn't going to have the time to play as I had planned.
This first jar ended up being my bulk look- my sister Kelly and I spent the day together and went bargain shopping in Michaels discount section- we bought some things and split them- so I have her to thank for the Making Memories papers I used- the GORGEOUS butterfly ribbon- which has sparkles on it!!- was clearance for $1 a roll!!!! I used Kelly's CTMH Butterflies set and stamped in Staz On on the light pink paper- then I glittered the life outta those little butterflies- cut them out and glued only the centers to the jar. I added some scallop scissor cut ovals, a few simple buttons with floss, and a tag to the jar. I had Alizabeth write a short thank you note to the teacher it was for- and wah- la!! one down - 11 to go! LOL!
Here is the lid for this- just a cut out scallop circle with a blfy.
Alizabeth has two male teachers- both music- and I wanted them to have a masculine looking jar, so I broke out my old star punch and cut circles on my circut- I used some beautiful SEI papers, and added a computer printed sentiment, and some sewed on buttons.
This was actually my first set- I broke out my MM Chloe's Closet that I bought on sale- and made two jars up- but as I said- time ran out and I had to get these jars done. All Chloe's Closet papers, and I added in some buttons too.
