As promised, here is my second project for graduation gifts.
What better way to say "I'm so proud of you" than with a jar full of chocolate?
1 bag* Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups
[*note: If you can resist eating any of the candy yourself,
then you only need 1/3 of a bag.]
4-1/2" tall Glass Hinged Jar ($1 at Mike's)
Scrapbook Paper in school colors
In addition to blue cardstock,
I used graduation-themed paper from TC Studio's "Hats Off" Pad.
Graduation Stamp Set
Square, Circle & Scalloped Punches
(I made two versions. This one uses two coordinating papers.)
Wrap jar with 1-3/4" x 10" strip of paper.
Add narrow strip of contrasting paper, if desired.
Place ribbon behind stamped image. Adhere to jar.
Punch out another scallop circle and adhere to top of jar.
Punch out square cardstock, attach floss with brad.
Adhere to peanut butter cup, and adhere to jar top.
Add coordinating ribbon and charms to hinge.
I used a star charm and a tiny metal "congrats" tag.
Here is the finished project:
These jars are so versatile, and can be embellished for any occasion.

While I whipped up this candy jar, I decided to quickly transform the graduation photo frame I posted a few days ago, giving it a feminine touch.
Either way, I hope your graduate will like it!
Here is a preview of my third altered artworks graduation project.
