My friend Nancy made similar jars like these for her door prize at stamp mania. Nancy put rub ons on the sides of her jars. I thought they were super cute and I had to make my own. For the candy, I used cherry sours, lemon sours and green apple hard candy for mine and used the matching stamps for the tops. I really love how they turned out. Don't know who is going to get them yet but I had to make them. The box movie candy that you can get at Walgreens fits perfectly in the jars. But you could put practically anything in them.
Here is a close up of the lids. I colored the images with SU markers and punched them out, matted them and that was it. Then I wrapped ribbon around the lids and used a glue dot to add a separate bow. I also attached the paper with glue dots to the lids.
Where can you get these cool jars to decorate you ask? You can get them at Cost Plus World Market. They come in a 4 pack for $3.99. Yes, $3.99. With tax they come to around $1.15 each and when you add the candy it will cost you around $2 per jar. How is that for a cheap cute gift to say thank you or for a quick birthday treat for one of the kids in your kids class. You could also make them for a hostess gift, club project, or teacher gift, the possibilities are endless. The jars come in two different types, round and cylinder. Get the round jars, they have the flat sides and they lean forward. I also heard there are similar jars at Hobby Lobby for 99 cents each and some at IKEA.
