Ginger Snap Crafts: teacher gift {tutorial}

teacher gift {tutorial}

Today I’ve got a cute, quick & so easy teacher gift.
I made these for some primary teachers at church.
{Primary is the children’s organization at our church.}
We had two of our teachers going off to college,
so these made the perfect going away gift.
You could always change it up,
& say “I hope we have a ball this year!”
Then use these as back to school teacher gifts!

Primary teacher gift idea from Ginger Snap Crafts

To make these I used: mason jars, gumballs, ribbon,
daisy cut jar lid, cardstock & a hang tag.

First I filled the jar with gumballs. 
I found a huge jar of them in the candy section at Walmart.

I love the daisy cut mason jar lids!  So cute!
I bought these from Smash Cake Studio on etsy. 
I cut some red cardstock into circles to put inside the lids.

Then I tied a ribbon & hung on the hang tag. That’s it!

  1. Those are so cute! Love the ribbon around them too! :) Happy Friday!! xo Holly

  2. So cute! What font did you use on the cards? I love it!

  3. The fonts are too much paper & century gothic. :)

  4. Super cute! I know this is totally unrelated but I like the effect you added to your pic. What program did you use? Oh and I love that punch, it's one of my favorites! :)

  5. These look very cute and simple to make. I don't think many students buy their teachers presents in the UK. I think it must be more popular in other countries.


  6. Very cute! I love how bright it is!

  7. So cute and I love the jar lids!

  8. Ooh, I love this! I have those same jar lids and totally want to use them for this! Maybe as a beginning of the year teacher gift? :)

  9. I love this! I am crazy about mason jars and ribbon!!

  10. I think I am the most envious teacher ever and it really shows when I see all these cool, creative, crafty teacher gift ideas. As a middle school teacher, I never see anything like these from my students' parents. Sigh. So sad.

  11. Mason jars are so versatile! This jar of gumballs with red polka dot ribbon is too adorable!

  12. Do you have a template for the tag that you can email me, so I don't have to remake it? I am a brand new primary president and a little stressed:)

    1. I don't! But I used a free program to create these called It would be super easy to recreate them! Then I just used a paper punch to cut them out. Good luck with your new calling.:)
