"Bursting" with excitement gift...Pinned It Made It Monday

Good afternoon everyone!  Is there a hint of fall in the air where you are?  Not so much here as it is in the 90's again today but they are promising a cooler weekend with temps in the lower 80's.  I can't wait!

I am linking up with Tammy's Pinned It Made It Monday today.  I found this cute gift idea on Pinterest and knew I had to make it for Darbee's first day of kindergarten!

The original picture idea I found was this.

I loved the saying on the tag and knew I wanted to use it but I didn't just want to send in a bag of candy.  I had to make it cuter.

I went to our local Joann's and was able to buy individual Mason jars for 1.99 each.

I found the cute cupcake liners at Michaels for 1.99 also.

Look at this.

I made a tag for the jar and attached them with ribbon.
They say, "I'm "bursting" with excitement that you are my teacher!"

I love how they turned out and how easy they were!

These could easily be adapted for any holiday with festive cupcake liners and different candy, cookies, etc.
