Upcycled jars- Teacher gifts

  I purchased the box of one dozen mini mason jars for the teacher gifts (from this post), but I could not forget to make something for our sweet bus driver and her assistant!  Every morning and afternoon Micheline and Terry greet us with a smile and keeps my precious girls safe.

  I had exactly two jars in my craft stash; the tall one was an oyster jar; I am not sure how it came to be in my possession.  The shorter jar was from an artichoke dip that I bought from a local gourmet kitchen store.  It had a different square paper and tag attached to the elastic band; I switched them both out.

  Once again my Xyron made the tags easy to layer and the Santas circle adhere easily to the oyster jar lid.  All of my papers are from the 6x6 American Crafts "Hollyday" collection that my friend Sally gave me last year for Christmas.  The twine is "Peapod" by The Twinery and the mittens badge is Crate Paper "Bundle Up" included in this month's Artful Delight kit.

  I am entering my projects in the current challenge at Shop Pumpkin Spice:  "Anything Holiday"

Happy Saturday!
