It's Monday! So I"m linking up with Miss Tara Eiken for the first time in forever (cue the Frozen music...) for her Monday Made It linky! I tend to be much better at these during the summer. There's even a freebie included at the end of this post!
I had a high-school graduation party to go to over the weekend. It was a special one for me. I started baby-sitting this young man about 15 years ago. Fast-forward a few years and he is now my nephew! My husband is the youngest in his family (by a lot!) so I inherited 12 nieces and nephews when we got married.
Anyways, I wanted to do something fun for a gift for him. Something more than just a card with a check in it. So I spent some quality time with Pinterest and this is what I found:
The idea is from Do It and How. I couldn't find all the candy that they used so I improvised! I took a trip to Target and purchased a large glass jar for cheap and some yummy treats!
A graduation gift isn't complete without some cash, though. I started with that on the bottom.
Then I put all the candy in! I made sure that the different bars and boxes fit in the jar before I left the store. The cashier probably thought I was crazy. I didn't do anything fancy, just shoved it all in!
Then I made my own twist on the poem, with some help from Melonheadz and Kelly B. decorations. His high school colors were green and yellow so I just added some card stock to the back. I also put our names on the back as well.
You can download your free copy of the card here!
