A Mason Thank You Gift for Teacher By Snap

Posted by  ·  April 29, 2014  ·  Last Updated: April 29, 2014

Teacher Appreciation Week is the first full week in May. Through all of April I am excited to share some amazing ideas from some of the most wonderful bloggers for my Teacher Appreciation Gift Ideas series! It’s a great month! You will be totally prepared with ideas to thank your teachers!

Teacher appreciation always seems to sneak up on me, so I am grateful to be participating in Cindy’s annual teacher appreciation series. Today, I am sharing a simple Mason Jar thank you gift for teacher.

Before we jump into the quick tutorial though, let me introduce myself! I’m Tauni. I run a fun conference for people who make stuff, called Snap. We just wrapped up our fourth annual conference this past weekend.

Here’s a few photos from the fun…

Running a conference in the spring is great…EXCEPT, it puts my behind on some of the little things like laundry, grocery shopping and keeping up with the kids school. Every year, I am looking for an EASY teacher appreciation idea that I can put together at the last minute. Enter, the Mason Jar thank you.

I haven’t ever jumped on the Mason Jar gift bandwagon before as popular as they are, but I thought it would be a fun container for all of the little goodies I’d grabbed for the boy’s teachers. I stuffed the bottom of the jar with some fun little Duck Tape Duckling rolls, candy, and a couple of gift cards.

Before popping the lid on, I wanted to create a cute cover. I pulled out some adhesive-backed fabric paper and cut a circle the size of the jar’s lid.

Once the circle had been cut, it was as simple as peeling off the backing and sticking it to the lid.

Such a simple thing, but the fabric/paper really finishes the jar off so that it looks nice. I couldn’t just leave the jar plain, so I snagged some of the pom pom trim I have been hoarding in my stash and tied it around the top of the jar.

Really? Is there anything better than pom poms?

I also added a little printable card…It’s sort of the finishing touch. It’s not just a jar. It’s an A-Mason jar!
