Yesterday I shared my Father’s Day project for my summer school kiddos. We finished them up today so they will be ready to send home tomorrow! I decided that I needed to get my own Father’s Day projects done and out of the door in time to be there by Sunday. (My Mother’s Day projects went out a day late since things were so crazy with school ending and I didn’t even get a picture of those!) So when I came home from work today I decided to finish them off. I had spent a few days rounding up all of the goodies to put in the jars and they were getting close. I finished up and got them in the mail today!
You can use all different types of jars. I grabbed the big one for Troy and his HUGE sweet tooth! I had to make it better then the big bowl that is stuffed full of goodies already! This will keep it fresher and airtight!
For my daddy…I made a “stache” of pistachios! I can remember when I was little, we would eat pistachios together because he LOVED pistachios!
This is Troy (or Troyboy….which is what I call him!) He is my step-dad and he is addicted to candy! This was by far the BEST idea for him for Father’s Day! He is worse than a 5 year old! Every time mom and I go to Garden we always have to get Troy some candy! They have the best “STACHE” of goodies when I come to visit! Between my mom and my sister, I hooked him up with some Red Vine Red Licorice, Carmel Milky Ways, and some extra goodies! I will be honest….There was ONE more box that didn’t make it….it was delicious! I owe you a box of Reese’s Pieces! lol I couldn’t resist!
Sorry Troyboy! This picture kills me everytime! He’s awesome! Best Step-Daddy a girl could ask for! He does so much for my mom and my family!!! Thanks Troyboy! I don’t think we say it enough!
Grandpa Bloesser and I apparently need to get a picture together! I had to go searching! Grandpa Bloesser loves mixed nuts, but he always has them at the house so I wanted to get him some goodies that he doesn’t have regularly. I got him some Peanut Butter Snickers and 3 Musketeers! I can remember him always having 3 Musketeers when I was little!
For my Grandpa Underhill, I filled him up with a variety of chocolate candies!
Alright Victor, you got out of a picture this time but I will make it happen….someday! This is Alex’s dad when we went to the Royal Gorge last year. He refused to let me take a picture of him! I hooked him up with some Sugar Free Twizzlers…which I might add are hard to find..So a HUGE shout out to CVS!
Glad Press & Seal (or transfer tape)
Cricut Mustaches & Glasses Digital Cartridge
“Stache” of desired goodies…candy, nuts, etc.
I grabbed some Krylon Metallic Spray Paint from Walmart (which I got carded for! lol) for the lids. Two quick coats on the tops and sides of the lids and you should be good.
After weeding out the excess vinyl, press the vinyl cutout onto Glad Press & Seal (or transfer tape).
After the vinyl is attached to the transfer tape, peel the backing off the cutout carefully.
Make sure to line up the sticky side carefully onto the jar as straight as possible and rub onto jar pressing out all of the air bubbles.
Love, love, love the final product!
