Ring Bearer DIY Gift

For my wedding I wanted to personalize the gifts for the younger ones. I searched and searched for appropriate gifts for children at weddings and everything fell flat.
I always have mason jars on hand because they make great storage jars and even better craft jars!
I decided to fill these with candies and snacks for the boys on the day of the wedding because let’s face it, they are going to get bored and need a little sugar to keep going through out the day. I started by designing the tags in Cricut Design Space then cut them out. I also used my Cricut to do the handwriting for me.
If you don’t have a cricut machine click HERE to download the tag templates, cut them out and write on them!
I used Kraft cardstock (HERE are more Kraft Cardstocks) and Mint Cardstock from Elizabeth Craft Designs, HERE are more Mint Cardstocks to choose from. Once I had them cut out and written on I used twine to attach them to the jars. These mason jars are great because they have an extra little lip under the lids so the twine doesn’t slide down and it doesn’t come off when the lid is off.
Next I decided to decorate the lid insert. I put their names and the date and added a little mint bow (our wedding colors) for a final touch. To attach this I used my favorite Zig glue. Since the lid inserts are a bit deep I doubled up some cardstock under the sign so that it didn’t have such a dip in it. I glued the cardstock down and then glued the insert over top.
NOTE* Make sure you make your circle big enough to be hidden under the lid edge.
I placed the lid on and Voila! Now just add your choice of candy, toys or crayons and you are set!
EXTRA TIP* I used these for my kids table as well. I put crayons, rolled up coloring sheets, mints and candy for the kids.
As an alternative to making your own tags, Papermania makes some amazing tags that come with twine, ready to go!
