Decorate a Goodie Jar

Hello Everyone!
This week I made another gift for my kids teachers (just the main 3 - no speciality teachers this time). I purchased the jars from Walmart and decorated them with the teachers' favorite color and will fill them with their favorite snack.

Supplies Needed:
Jar (a flat edged jar works best)
Paper: I used Pink Passion by StampinUP and Pink Glitter by DCWV
Adhesive: The stronger the better. I used my ATG 714 tape gun. Also used Xyron sticker maker.
Embellishments: Flowers from Michael's $1 bin. Keep in mind, any embellishment will do.
Cricut Cartridge: Mini Monograms
Pop Dots: StampinUP
Ribbon: StampinUP Rose

I cut the rounded corner squares with my Cricut Expression (my Cricut Expression 2 should be here next week!!!). I cut two squares in Pink Passion and two squares in Pink Glitter, all at 2.5 inches. After covering the square with a lots of adhesive, I place it on the jar. My jar had a square on each side with a raised edge, which the 2.5 inch cut out fit perfectly. I alternated the Pink Passion and Pink Glitter on the sides.

I attached the flowers and gem with pop dots. 

On the lid I cut a circle at 3.5 inches and another one at 3 inches.  I layered the plain paper and glitter paper.  Again, attached the flower and gem with pop dots. Using my Xyron sticker maker, I attached the ribbon around the lid edge. All done!

This jar will be filled with white cheddar popcorn, the teacher's favorite snack!

  1. Awesome project! Teachers deserve great gifts like this (I am a teacher, so I might be a bit biased!)
