Mason jar gifts have been around for a long time, but the new Aladdin Insulated Mason Jar Tumblers help kick up the whole mason jar gift trend up a notch.
With back-to-school season, I've teamed up with QVC and You're Home with Jill to participate in the QVC Back-to-School Mason Jar Challenge.
I decided to create some super simple, easy, fun and functional DIY gifts that are easy for you to customize, for some of the important people in your life this the school year:
* DIY Teacher Mason Jar Tumbler Gift
* DIY Sports Coach Mason Jar Tumbler Gift
* DIY MomFriend Mason Jar Tumbler Gift
* DIY College Mason Jar Tumbler Gift
I designed mason jar lid labels and gift tags to coordinate with each of the Aladdin mason jar tumbler colors.
You can download the FREE back-to-school printable here.
I also included two extra lid labels and tags, so you have six potential scenarios to choose from, depending on the type of gift you need to create.
These 20 ounce jars come in a set of four for approximately $33.25 and have bright, cheerful screw-top lids and straws.
I love that after using the tumblers as a gift holder, your gift recipient can use these mason jar tumblers every single day! Such a great way to remember to get enough water throughout the day.
HOW TO MAKE THESE DIY MASON JAR TUMBLER GIFTS
1. Add a Decorative Band of Scrap Fabric.
If you're like me, you have lots of random fabric scraps lying around from past projects. Use scrap fabric that coordinates with the color of the mason jar tumbler lid and straw. Weave through the tumbler handle, and secure across the tumbler with double stick tape.
2. Download, Print, and Adhere the Mason Jar Lid Printables.

Using scissors, cut around the outer ring of each circle, and then carefully cut out the middle circle for the straw opening.
Use double stick tape to adhere the lid design to the top of each lid.
3. Download, Print, Cut, and Secure the Gift Tag.
Cut out the DIY Mason Jar Tumbler Gift Tags from the free download.
Using a hole punch, punch a hole through the top of each gift tag.
Using whatever string or ribbon you have in coordinating colors, tie each gift tag to the tumbler lid rings.
4. Fill each mason jar tumbler with fun items to fit each theme.
