Party DIY: cupcake in a jar lids


**********************************************************************************************************************

As a party favor for Sister's 1st birthday party I made cupcakes in a jar.  I thought I'd share how I topped the jars.

baby's name edited out of pics :)

I debated what to top the jars with.  Pinterest and the party websites show custom tags and stickers.

Neither were options for me because:
a) I wanted to do this on a shoestring
b) I waffled way too long to have anything printed and arrive in time for the party :)


So I decided on this super simple, non-spendy idea.  If you have a grocery bag and a scrapbook punch (or patience and a pair of scissors!) you can make them.

Start by turning your grocery bag into swiss cheese with your punch.  The 2.5 inch size punch is a perfect fit for regular mouth mason jars.

I made 48 jars using two bags.


I bought this custom stamp maker at the office store for Christmas gifts last year.  I love it and actually use it a ton.  Of course, perfectly imperfect has to be your style...which totally works for me.

I set mine to say Happy First Birthday {Baby Sister} and stamped away.

I also freehanded a little heart on each tag for fun.


Then I slipped the tag onto each lid and slid it into the ring...no glue or anything needed.


I tied each jar with a piece of baker's twine and a spoon and was good to go!
