“40 Sucks!”

My dear sweet friend turned 40 and that called for a fun gag gift!

“40 Sucks!”

40 Suckers in the cutest Gallon Sized Mason Jar! It was a match made in heaven!


I about fell over in Walmart when i found this adorable Gallon sized Ball Mason Jar! It’s sold in the same are as the normal sized Mason jars in the canning section.

Add 40 Blow Pops and now we’re on to something!

Lastly It needed a fun tag and some fun bling to add a little sass! I made a quick Tag with my Letter Press Machine and used Bistro Chalk markers to write “40 Sucks” and then it was on to the trim!

Pom Poms, Ric Rack, Tulle and curled Gross Grain ribbon makes it a done deal!

This project totally SUCKS!!!

    Very cute!! I was just at a surprise Birthday party where someone did something like this.
    She made a sucker bouquet in a flower pot with 60 suckers & the top sucker was bigger with the sticker saying “60 Sucks” It was adorable & the hit of the party.

    We had a ton of 40th birthdays last year & I made quite a few of these which were a huge hit! I also did jars of gumballs that said 40 BLOWS! :)

    I totally get the pun, but don’t agree ;-) I was thrilled to turn 40 and would much rather see a much more positive light put on this age.. There has got to be a way to be positive.. we must think!

    I have a friend turning 60 this weekend and I am making this…had to get a giant jar and 4 bags of Tootsie Pops! What else do you give someone on their 60th year?!

    Superb blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers?
    I’m hoping to start my own blog soon but
    I’m a little lost on everything. Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid
    option? There are so many options out there that I’m completely confused ..
    Any ideas? Thanks a lot!
