I love to create fun gifts for friends and family, and I thought it was about time to come up with something new that I knew some of my favorite people would love. A filled mason jar is always a hit and with limited edition Skittles America Mix available on Amazon, I had the perfect idea. With Skittles sweetness in signature American colors; All American Thank You Jars was it.
My husband is in the military so I’m planning to send some of these to work with him to celebrate all that the soldiers in his unit do. These jars will make great hostess gifts for summer parties, as well as gifts for the guests at any of my own summer holiday gatherings. I even have some other super special people in my life who might need their day brightened with a gratitude gift for all they do for me. These jars are extremely versatile and perfect to use all summer long. With fun and unique colors the Skittles America Mix is also perfect for summer celebrating by being used as dessert decorations or maybe even some summer crafts.
All American Thank You Jars
- A bag of Skittles America Mix
- Pint sized mason jars with lids and rings (or size of your choosing)
- Thank You tags (I have a printable for you)
- Raffia, twine or other ribbon for decoration.
First you’ll need to take on the task of sorting out all of the Skittles America Mix into red, white and blue. I employed my husband for this task. His payment was Skittles. He was pleased with this arrangement.
In case you’re wondering, there are five flavors in the limited edition Skittles America Mix. Strawberry, Blackberry, Yumberry, Raspberry and Wild Berry.
Once your Skittles are sorted grab a mason jar and start filling. Make a layer of red, a layer of white, then a layer of blue. When you get to the top add your lid.
Grab your choice of ribbon or lid decoration. I used a bit of raffia and some jute cord.
Pull out your thank you tags. You can print off a sheet of six onto cardstock using this printable. Just click on the image and it will take you to a pdf ready to print.
Decorate the top of your jar with the tag attached and you’re ready to share the red, white and blue thank you with your friends!
Getting a good stock of the limited edition Skittles America Mix is how you’ll make sure you can create enough of these fun thank you jars for the entire summer. Stock up on them on Amazon. It’s an easy way to get the supplies you need with little effort, plus it ships fast!
I had my Skittles America Mix in less than two days with Prime shipping. I ordered two 41 ounce bags, and these jars turned out so good I think I might have to order more!
