It’s that time of year and you probably know someone graduating. I’m always looking for a small gift to give in addition to a gift of money for graduation. I’ve got a quick and easy graduation gift that can also be used as a party favor featuring your graduate’s favorite candy. And it uses a repurposed glass jar (I just love repurposing projects!).
My large stash of glass food jars was calling my name, so I just had to find a use for them. I grabbed a jar with a black lid to make this project even quicker, but you could simply spray paint the lid black. I also grabbed some black card stock, some ribbon (use your school color) and a gold sequin. Cut the card stock to fit the lid of your jar and look like a graduation cap. A 4 1/2″ by 4 1/2 ” square worked best for my jar.
I used a hot glue gun to attach the ribbon and sequin, but you could use craft glue.
Now I’m ready with a sweet (pun intended) small gift to go along with the card for my favorite graduate. These would also make cute party favors at a graduation party.
