Hey all! Graduation season is officially upon us and while my sweet munchkins aren’t anywhere close to graduating high school yet (thank heavens!), my oldest son is graduating from primary school this year! He’s so incredibly smart and I’m so proud of him for making all A’s, excelling in the school’s accelerated reader program, and for always getting great reports from his teachers. He’s just a great kid all-around and it makes me happy knowing that he truly loves school and is excited to learn.

Regardless of whether it’s college, high school, or kindergarten graduation, graduating is always an event worth celebrating in my book and such an accomplishment. Plus, ya’ll already know I’m all about celebrating the small wins, so in honor of graduation season I created these adorable Graduation Cap Mason Jars that will be the perfect gift for all the graduates. These creative Graduation Cap Mason Jars are so fun and easy to make and are the perfect way to gift your graduate money or candy. Even better, they can be personalized to create the most special gift for him or her.

Step 3: Create a tassle using the red floss by gathering several threads together and tying off the top with a long piece of thread. For added security I tied this off twice.

Basic Invite Graduation Announcements

I was really impressed with Basic Invite’s selection of graduation announcement cards and invitations, with over 200 products to choose from. I ended up customizing the Marker Script Foil Announcement  with my son’s photo, and was so happy with the instant preview feature. I was able to instantly see the changes made to lettering and colors, and I loved that it even provided an estimated arrival date at the bottom, to ensure my cards were delivered on time.

    These look great and really cool. I am glad that the little buddies are not graduating yet and I know that both of them will do really great in school and graduate with top honors like their parents. Love you guys and love the Graduating Jar and great way to save money or just put candy in it.
