Back to School Goodie Jar! I Love My Teacher!

My grandson will be starting kindergarten this year and I thought it would be nice for him to take a little gift to his teacher. I saw this ideal on one of the many blogs that I follow, but I will be darned if I can remember who's. If it was you let me know so I can give credit where it belongs.





This was a very fun project to make and took no time at all. I picked up the jar at the Dollar store and then just hot glued crayons around it. It did take 2 1/2 packages of the large crayons, but then I didn't use the blacks, browns and greys. I then tied a pretty ribbon around the middle and added a tag. I hope his teacher will like it, I know I do! I am going to put some sugar free suckers into the jar for a treat for the kids in his classroom.

I will be entering this in the following challenges:
Whimisical Wednesday: Back to School ( no cards this week )
Crop Stop: Back to School
Creative Cutter Room: A gift for teacher.
As always thanks for stopping bye. Have a great week!

I absolutely LOVE this project! It's so bright and cheerful, and so perfectly appropriate and sweet! That's a lot of amazingness packed into one creation. :o) I love that you used the large crayons, plus the ribbon is a wonderful finishing touch. I absolutely adore the sentiment... what teacher wouldn't love that to kick off a new year? :o) Excellent work! Thank you for playing along with us at Whimsical Wednesday! :o)

Hugs and blessings!
