jar of sunshine

Have you seen the boxes of sunshine that have been all over Pinterest? They are super cute, and when I needed a little thank-you for some friends they were the first thing that popped into my head. A whole box of sunshine would have been a little bit of an overkill for what I needed, so I decided to give a jar of sunshine instead. It's such a fun way to say thank you or brighten someone's day!

Simply fill a jar with some gold-wrapped candy (I found my jars at Hobby Lobby, but most grocery and craft stores have them), print and cut the printable, and tape it to your jar using double-sided tape. The sunshine label doesn't go all the way around the jar, so just make sure it's centered and you are set! 

If you want to dress it up a little more you can cover the lid with some cute paper or fabric, or tie some ribbon or baker's twine around it. I used some white cardstock to cover my lid and then attached a thank you note at the top with some ribbon. It was a big hit with my friends, so I will definitely be doing it again!

Find the printable right here and spread some sunshine! 


  1. I agree, sometimes you don't need something huge so these are perfect. Thanks for the idea!

  2. I love that idea! I'd probably want it to be lined so it wasn't completely sheer.
    So lovely! I saw a A in the mall last week and *very* nearly bought it, it was so lovely. I've always loved it but it's never been fashionable - hooray for the new trend!Cheap Women's Clothing

  3. That is really creative of you and it looks really nice. Going to built one for my friend who is having her birthday in coming week. Thanks for sharing it

  4. That's so thoughtful! And I love how simple it is. I'm trying to come up with a way to make a, "Kisses from the Mrs." jar and this post is super helpful. Thanks for sharing!
