Teacher Appreciation Mason Jars

teacher appreciation 2

I have seen more and more inspiration for and projects using a mix of big and small gum balls lately.  My friend Lauren even used them in centerpieces at a birthday last week. The reason is obvious- they’re fun, fit any celebration and who doesn’t like a gum ball? I just love the look.  Here is a great way to thank a teacher using this trend.  Simply fill a large mason jar with a mixture of large and small gum balls attach the tag which you can download for free below with baker’s twine and you’re done.

If you are feeling a bit more crafty and happen to have a Silhouette machine (If not, you must get one. I love mine.), use red vinyl to cut out an apple and attach to the front of the jar.

Which do you like better- with or without the apple?  Pin your favorite picture so I can see!  I am also practicing my photography skills thus the wood background and the white background.  Pin your preference:)

To download the tags right-click on the picture below and save.  Open in Word, Picasa or another program and print on a color printer.
