Lucky Teacher's Gifts for St. Patrick's Day

I was blog hopping a couple weeks ago and saw a great idea over at eighteen25 and decided to put my own twist on it.  If you haven't been to their blog you must check it out--great!


I loved the Hershey's Kisses in the Creme De Menthe flavor and really wanted to do more with them since they were so yummy.  I decided it was going to be the treat I used for the teacher's St. Patrick's Day gift.  I originally bought these little sour apple rings to use in the jars but then the kisses were so good I had to use them.
Sour Apple Rings:

I think every teacher will love getting a jar filled with goodies on St. Patrick's Day.

I created a simple label and then filled up my jars.

I used Glue Dots to adhere my ribbon to my jars.  I then used the glue dots to put my labels together--I layered several papers together for the label.  I then used my spool of ribbon to trace a circle on the back of my green damask paper.  I then cut out the cirlces and used glue dots to stick to the top of the lid.

I added a scallop edged label so the teacher's knew who the gift came from.  I also added some green and white baker's twine from Bella Creationz.  I like alot of color and patterns so there may be too much going on with my jars but you could do it as simple or as elaborate as you'd like.
