I was looking for a vessel for frog gummies for a Frogs, Snails & Puppy Dog Tails theme baby shower. Cello bags are generally my standard and I always have them on hand, but I had a lot of empty condiment jars that I had just cleaned out so I decided to use those instead. Here’s how I made the favors:
Throughly wash “upcycled” jars with vinegar, soap and hot water to eliminate any lingering flavors. Fill with gummy frogs, placing several of the frogs with their backs against the glass so the fill looks neat. Cut squares of scrapbook paper (the dot pattern shown is from Michael’s single sheet section) slightly larger than the lid. Fold paper over the lid and tie with ribbon or yarn (I used brown yarn and doubled it to make the bow look more substantial). Buy printable labels, such as those from Gartner (also sold at Michael’s), and print a quote or name on the tags, and add a frog sticker. Center the tags on top of the jars and you’re done!
