Create a Teacher Gift Jar

by Megan Hoeppner

Start the school year off on the right foot with a unique teacher gift, made from scrapbooking supplies. To do this, select a glass container (ours is made up of three stacking containers) and the goodies you want it to hold. Decorate the outside of your canister with vinyl, like these Chalkboard Décor Elements labels from Stampin' Up!, and write a little note with either chalk or chalk markers. You can make this gift in mere minutes-and your child's teacher is sure to use it all year long.


Adhereing Vinyl to Glass

Vinyl rub-ons work on many surfaces, including glass. To adhere vinyl to your next project, simply follow these steps:

1. Carefully remove paper backing from vinyl.

2. Position vinyl on glass, vinyl-side down, rub to secure and eliminate air bubbles.

3. Carefully remove second paper layer to reveal your vinyl image.

Whether you use stacking jars or a single glass vase, this is one project any teacher is going to adore!

Great idea to thank the teachers for their hard work! Thanks!
Fantastic Idea!
May have to make them for dds' teachers, and include myself, since I'm a teacher, too, lol. It will look awesome in my classroom!
