I do like to give little gifts to those who are special in my life. What a great opportunity to say a thank you to those who make life richer. I’ve put together this St. Patrick’s Day gift jar (with a printable). This year my leprechaun list will include my son’s crossing guard (always helping to guide him to school safely in the midst of what, this winter at least, resembles a NASCAR race). Also a few others who could use some St. Patrick’s Day shenanigans about now. Actually, the word shenanigans is one of my favorite parts of this holiday. What a great word…especially for Mother’s with sons. The shenanigans never stop with my boys….those little rascals. Find the St. Patrick’s Day Gift Jar instructions (and printable below).
I started with a Weck jar. I found these at Sur la Table which would also work perfectly!! Next came the good stuff. I wanted a mix of candy and fun little surprises all in gold. Silly and delicious…leprechaun sized goodies. The gold glitter nail polish was a fun find!
The rainbow label for the top came next. I wanted it to be the rainbow leading to the gold underneath. I printed it, cut it out and attached it to the top of the jar with double stick tape. I ran out of sticker paper which would have been even easier.
I am happy to share what I created. The label is approximately 3″ round. The link is below. This is one of the first downloads that I have done. That is a nice way of saying I have no idea how well it will work. But I am giving it a try and fingers (and toes) are crossed hoping it all works out well. If not send me an e-mail and I will get working on it.
Finished off with a flourish of ribbon and my leprechaun gifts are ready to roll.
