Peachy Keen Stamps LFIF Challenge: Back to School

Hi gang! I'm here today with another PKS LFIF Challenge. This week it's Back to School! Fun fun. If you enter, you can be eligible to add some precious PKS faces to your collection. Check it out here. My project for today is Cupcakes in a Jar! I made these sweet treats and decorated the top of the jars with a cute lil Peachy Keen cupcake. I think they turned out pretty cute!
These are so super easy to make! Here's what you'll need:

Muffin pan
12 mason jars, small
Cake Mix with 2 tubs of frosting (or you can make your own...I am a busy mom so no time for that!)
piping bag with tip

Wash and dry mason jars (I got mine at Target). Bake cupcakes according to directions (I used Red Velvet with Cream Cheese frosting) without the liner. Make sure to use spray on the pan! Let cool. Cut them in half.
Start with a bottom half of cupcake in the bottom of the jar.
Then, pipe a thin layer of frosting next.
Layer until you reach near the top of the jar, ending with a frosting layer. I used chocolate sprinkles!
I didn't even bother sealing the lids, just put the tops back on and screwed them on.
Then decorate lids! I wrapped two layers of twine around my jar lids. Then I attached my spellbinders scallop circle die pieces to the top of the lid, embossed with the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder. The cupcake is from the Smiley Cards cartridge and I of course used Peachy Keen Stamps Princess Faces! The sentiment stamp is from MFT Hello Cupcake set. Hope you enjoyed.

Now, go make some cupcakes! :)
