I am excited about this and I can’t wait to make this again! I am showing you how to create a birthday gift if a jar…or more like a birthday in a jar! It’s all the fixins’ for a tasty, festive cupcake!
Birthday Gift In A Jar

Putting Together Your Birthday Gift In A Jar
Once you have all of your supplies, you can put everything into the jar. So this is how I did that.
- I started with the cupcake. It was baked in a foil cupcake liner but it really needed another color so I plopped it into a red liner. Then it got placed into a cello bag and tied at the top with bakers twine. I trimmed the bag at the top as needed. Do the same with the candle and the sprinkles.
- Place some of the tissue filler into the jar then add the cupcake all cute in its cello bag!
- Add the sprinkles and the candle.
- The frosting went into the little squeezable bottle so it could easily be squeezed onto the top of the cupcake. You could include a plastic knife to spread the frosting. This really worked the best.
- Once everything is placed into the jar you just need to add the tag!
Making The Tag
I created this tag in Photoshop Elements. If you would like to know more about this awesome program you can read my post about why I love it so much here! Once it is created and saved as a png file all you have to do is upload it to the Avery website, (this is on the box of stickers if you forget) . You choose your size template, upload the design and print the stickers. It really is that easy.
The Avery website allows you to choose the sticker sheet size you have purchased and upload a design. Then when you tell it to print (from the website) it will print your stickers perfectly. It was so easy to do.
Here is the design for the tag.
And, here is how they turned out printed. Even with the kraft paper the colors came out quite nicely! And the best part is that they are already cut into circles.
These tags are 2.5 inches so my circle tag is 2.75 inches. I cut it out on my Silhouette Cameo!
Place the printed kraft sticker onto the white background circle and attach it to the jar at the top.
You are all done.
This is how it would look to receive this gift and use it!
What do you think? I love this idea of getting a special cupcake just for me! My dad would call it a “do it yourself kit”!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
