a gift for a "bright" graduate

I was so inspired when I found light bulb jars at Hobby Lobby.  I've seen so many clever things done with old light bulbs, but I had no idea there were actual light bulb jars!  I got a little excited.  I just thought it was pretty cool.

So I got a few and made little treats for graduates.  (These jars are filled with lemon heads.)  You could make some cute printable tags, but I had these yellow Martha Stewart tags in my stash just waiting to be used.


Ideas for messages:
"Your future looks bright"
"You're one bright kid"

...you get the idea here :)


You could even pretty 'em up a little more with ribbons in the school colors and such.
These were for a couple of older boys, so I didn't think they'd care so much for 
all that ribbon and frilly stuff :)

Of course I had to "pin" this. I love this so much. I wish they came in plastic for the littler kids and possibly for other uses? But thanks for posting that great idea!!!
