My daughter’s birthday is today and on the weekend I am taking nine, 11 and 12 year old girls out to lunch.  So to say thank you for coming I wanted to give each one of the girls something sweet and special to take home.


I made popcorn thank you jars.  On each jar I stuck a pen and a tiny post it note.  This concept was so easy to put together and cost under $5.00 each to make.



I started with buying the mason jars from Typo.  With pink lids of course.  I bought them on line to save me having to lug them through the shopping centre.



I bought an assortment of stickers from Blank Goods.

Gold tape and post in notes from Daiso.

Hot pink and light pink pens from Pavement for $1.00 each.


I popped the popcorn myself .

Then I melted 250 g of white Cadbury chocolate melts and mixed it into the popcorn.  I then added the marshmallows and 100’s and 1000’s.

I filled the jars with the sweet sticky popcorn.


I used the pretty stickers and tape to decorate the jars.  I added the pen and a thank you gift tag and then stuck the post it notes on the lid.  Hey presto, they are going to love them.

I’ll let you know how I go.
