Holiday Treat Jar


Well I am never one to step away from a challenge. I was just talking to a friend of mine and she asked me for an idea for putting candies in Mason Jar. So off to my stamp room I went and came up with this idea. I have to say I lovin' this idea. It may be the holiday gift I give out to co-workers this year.

Ingredients to make this project:
Stamp set: Lot of Thoughts (retired Sale-a-bration set from last year)
Ink: Real Red
Paper: Real Red, Whisper White
Accessories: Real Red Polka Dot Grosgrain Ribbon, 5/16" Jumbo Brads, Jingle Bells from a local craft store, Hemp Twine
Tools: Jumbo Snowflake punch, Big Shot, Sizzex Circle #2, Paper Piercer and Tag Sizzex I also purchased at a local craft store.

Special Touch: The tag was attached first to the rim of the jar with dimensionals. Then I wrapped ribbon around the jar. I tied the bells onto the ribbon first with Hemp Twine and then tied the knot in the ribbon to hide the twine. The words were cut out and attached.

I made a bunch of these last year for gifts. I also put heershey kisses (red and white ones) in the jars and they looked so pretty. I wrapped the side of the jar with pp and added some stickles as well.
