C is for Appreciation....

...or maybe C is for Cookie!
If you have been around my blog long, you probably know that I like to show my appreciation with cookies:) So a few weeks ago when our church was celebrating Staff Appreciation Week, it was natural that I make cookies for our pastor {plus 3 associate pastors & the children's director}. Lucky for me Hobby Lobby was having an awesome sale...all glassware was 50%. I got some great cookie jars for $2.00 and $2.50 each!
After I filled the jars up with yummy peanut butter or chocolate chip cookies, I prettied them up with some black and white gingham ribbon and a cute red tag {thanks goodness for my Cricut}.
I also added a black vinyl initial to each of the jars just to make them a little more personal.
And hopefully the church staff now knows how much we appreciate all they do for us!

What a great idea! These would make great teacher gifts, too! The great thing is that the glass container is reusable after they eat up all of the cookies! Love it!

I'm snagging this idea for my father-n-law for Christmas. He has the BIGGEST sweet tooth and for Christmas I was going to give him a log of cookie dough. (He even loves to eat it raw!) Now I think I'll bake him a batch of cookies and put them in a cute jar like this. Thanks for the great idea!
