Fancy Jars

Sometimes the simplest gifts can make a wonderful gift if you package it right. Isn't that the truth?!

I wanted a couple of gifts of chocolate, cause every stamper I know loves chocolate. It is a gift that can't really miss if you ask me! I mixed several different kinds of Hershey Nuggets and Kisses, all conveniently wrapped in gold paper. These glass jars probably hold about 1 1/2 cups worth. There are raised edges on the glass marking off areas for labels. The lids came in this artichoke like green so I used some DP that matched. The paper came all glittered up, the camera doesn't pick it up, but trust is gorgeous!!! I used Marvy and Martha Stewart snowflake punches and topped them off with a button and some ribbon around the lid.
I love to give my homemade goodies but sometimes if the person doesn't know you well enough, they may feel funny about your food. Like teachers for instance. I would rather give a "safe" treat in that case.
If you are feeling the crunch to finish those "little" gifts this season, this is a nice option.
Thanks for visiting. I have more projects lined up to share soon.

Instead of just giving chocolate, you are giving it all dressed up. That makes it a little more special.
