summer in a jar ... ♥

it's officially summer here :)
school is over and we're excited for some fun stuff ahead

last week i wanted to come up with a few small teacher gifts for the girls to bring on the last day of school ... 
and i've been on a "gift in a jar" kick this year
so i figured i'd end the year with one more last hoo-rah :)

these were for teachers & school staff
but they can be for anyone!
a summer birthday party gift or a friend pick-me-up present

i tried to find things that were all the same color
the neon orange & pink together really made it look like a little bit of summer bottled up in there :)

i found everything at Target ... mostly in the travel section 
except for the gum and the drink mixes
everything fit in there quite nicely...

with just enough room on top for the poofy bath thingy ... whatever those are called

whipped up a little label and punched it out with a big round scalloped punch

i put the hand sanitizers on the outside just because that pink was so pretty i didn't want to hide it! 
and there ya go! sum. sum. summertime in a jar! 
heehee :)
