chuckle Very Cute Teachers Gift

I ran across this picture and thought that you talented ladies might like this idea. Im not crafty enough to do this but I would consider buying one of these at a craft show if they could be personalized right there.


They could be made with regular jars as well.

Isn't that just darling...I wonder where I can find jars like that.

Any ideas? Thanks for sharing.

I remember a while back that our Dollar Tree had something similar to that --a jar with the big latch on the front of it. I dont think they carry them now though.

How about somewhere like a container store, cooking store, or maybe Michaels's??? But who knows what kind of price you would have to pay for them.


Ill keep my eyes open when Im out and about to see if I can find them anywhere.

I live in PA and our dollar stores have various jars like that at different times keep your eyes peeled. Also garage sales- good wills etc. If you don't have time enlist your friends and family. I printed out a shopping list with discription of items and how much I'm willing to pay. They shop for me. PS make sure you trust their judgement. Good Luck

jars

Hi Ladies!
These jars are wonderful! Wish I had the painting gene!
Anyway...I thought of ways you can use these jars besides as candles. They would make great small tool or untensil holders in the kitchen or bathroom. A large gallon size pickle jar would hold larger untensils or make a great flour or sugar canister. A small one on your desk with hard candies would be great too and make a neat gift! Baby food jars would make cute spice containers and a set of them would make a nice bridal shower gift!
Well, that should get some of your minds working and I'm sure you'll all be able to come up with even better ideas.
Alice

Tami-

In looking at the jar you posted, this doesn't require alot of talent. What they used is called "Rub On Transfers", you can get them at any craft store such as Michaels. You just choose your pattern it comes with a popcycle stick, lay it on the surface and rub back and forth and it sticks. The name they may have painted on?

Anna, I never thought of using rub-ons for those. Good Eye!!!

Where are you buying your rub-ons? Ive seen a few at WalMart but nothing really special.

Are they easy to use?


Thanks for pointing that out to me!!

Tami, Hope you don't mind me jumping in here..but the rub on's are extremely easy to use.

Our Walmart here has alot of them and in all sizes. Also Joanne fabrics has them too. I have also found them in teacher supply stores, stationary stores, Office Max, and of course online..online you might find a that special one you are looking for.

Tootles,
janet

I second what Janet says... they are incredibly easy to use. You can even use them on clay pots. A friend here at work gave me a suggestion for my mall shop. Paint a flower pot ( I spray painted mine) attach a transfer rub on and use as a gift basket. Include small candle, body oil, scrubby... you get the idea?

What a wonderful idea, you can also sponge paint a clay flower pot ( I leave some of the clay pot showing)..rub a garden theme transfer on it and then put a few packages of seeds, maybe a pair of garden gloves, trowel, and samples of hand cream, and fill the empty places with raffia. It is a great gift for a gardener...even for a Christmas gift..

Love, Janet
