Mini M&M jars with tags


Separated the mini M&M's



Then I had fun photographing all the colors :)

Since we gave something out to all the teachers, nurse, librarian, principal, asst. principal, music, art and P.E. we used the smaller jars this year. They are only 2 1/2 inches tall (see pictures below of larger jars)
Layered the colors according to the labels


Added ribbon and labels

Personalized tags on the top for each teacher and from the boys

FREE 4x6 downloadable tags (large and small)
I sent the file to a local 1hr photo lab to be printed but you can also print 4x6 size at home.


HERE  to download 4x6 LARGE M&M tag for FREE
(then right click and save)


HERE  to download 4x6 SMALL M&M tag for FREE
(then right click and save)


HERE  to download 4x6 top lid tag for FREE
(then right click and save)

They are blank because the ones I printed were personalized with the teachers name and the boys names. You can write directly on the tag and attach to the top if you want.

    1. I found an 18 count of the jars at Michael's in the wedding party favor section. They were $19.99 with a 40% off coupon for signing up for their email notifications online.

    2. Fab find Amber! I'm disabled so can't get out much but next week is my "I'm going to Michael's to spend a ridiculous amount of money for all the crafts and redos I can do while sitting at a table or even in bed!" I'll be thinking of all of you while I giggle with glee as I enter the door! <3

  2. All the jars (square, round and mini) where purchased at Michael's Craft store. They have scrapbooking jars but they are much more expensive. I found these close to the wood section where they have frames and letters that can be painted. They are $1 each and I usually wait until I have a 20% off my purchase coupon to stock up. Hope this helps.

  7. Love this idea! How did you get the labels to stick?

  8. Thank you Danielle! @ Michelle, Thank you and I used double sided tape to attach the labels. I LOVE double sided tape and joke that it's one of my top 5 crafting supplies. :)

  10. Is something wrong with the small tag link? I click on it to download and it takes me to a page with a red "X" and no picture.

  13. Thank you for such a great idea and download. Do you have a link for the cute matching lid printable?

  14. I just added a blank top tag just below the other downloadable tags. The ones I used were personalized with the teachers names and the boys names. Hope this helps. Thanks for asking, I didn't think about the top tags.

  15. Awesome Sharon!! You are so welcome and thanks for the feedback!

  16. I love this idea-preschool daughter has 7 teachers, so this is PERFECT while staying within a budget :0) The "Icing on the Cake" printed clear at photo lab but the "O-Fish-ally" and "M&M" small labels printed fuzzy. I also just tried from printer but experienced the same thing.
    Am I missing something?

    THANKS AGAIN!!

  17. Thank you, Shaunn! That is so weird about the tags. I won't be able to check it until later tonight but if you save the picture on my blog it's a much much smaller photo (so my site loads faster.) If you click the link below each photo it pulls up another window with the original photo to save. You might have done it correctly but just in case. I will take a look at it tonight. Thank you for letting me know.

  20. Thanks Elena! I made these for my 6th grader to take to school for her teachers! I'm sure they will be a hit. Fun, affordable, easy craft for us to do. Thanks for sharing.

  22. do you have a download for the larger jars where you have Ms. Dodson Rocks? I would love to get one, if possible. This is so cute and looks easy to do. I am not a crafty person, but am going to try.

    Thanks!

  23. I don't, sorry. They were all personalized and I didn't have time to make a generic one without a name. Those were from two years ago. I do have the larger M&M tag and it fits the larger jars. Hope that helps.

  24. I just made these for my son's preschool teachers. Tomorrow is his last day and he is so excited to pass these out! Thanks for such a cute idea. Four teachers cost me only $12.00

    1. Yes, It's on this post under the M&M tags. (downloadable) It's just colorful blank circles since mine were personalized with the teacher name and my sons name. I didn't make a to: and from: blank template. Sorry.
