    What a wonderful thing to share with all of us, thanks so much Angie. I don’t have young kids and my grand kids are all older or I’d make things for them to give their teachers. The labels and jars are so wonderful. I can only imagine the younger readers with small children will be thrilled with the labels and ideas.

    I absolutely love this!!! And one of my daughter’s teacher’s name is Ms Ball. I can’t wait to do this for her! I’m going to send one to her every day of teacher appreciation week! Thanks for sharing!

    These are so cute! These would be great gifts for our PTO CHairperson(s). WOuld there be a way to do one that says, “Your on the Ball–Thanks for all that you do!” or something along those lines?? Just love this idea!

    Oh I love these!! I just bought some Ball jars at Walmart and am filling them with cookies for my son’s teachers for Teacher Appreciation. I’m definitely using your adorable labels! I’ll be posting a link to them from my blog with a picture of the jars.

    Thank you so much for the use of the labels. Since Ball came out with their Heritage Spring Green I’m going to make some awesome teacher appreciation gifts this year! I can’t wait to see how they turn out. Thank you, thank you for all the stuffing suggestions. Much appreciated!

    Thanks so much for sharing these! A pin from this post Pinterest inspired me (before even seeing your post). I posted about my result and linked one of your images – hope that was okay!

    Thank you so much for the use of these precious tags! We filled a ball jar with orange Tic-Tacs (our teacher’s favorite candy) and attached these tags. Precious!

    I absolutely adore these, Angie. I was feeling guilty because I had no teacher appreciation gift in mind, but now I can whip something up this week for my kiddo’s teachers. Now, to figure out what to fill them with!
