Christmas in July Event Day 2 - Treats & Favors

Hi Everyone,
Welcome back for Day 2 in the Christmas in July Event hosted by Giselle and Nadia.  Today is Treats & Favors Day and my project is a glass treat jar that I altered a bit to hold chocolate covered cadies or should I say Rudolph's Spare Noses :0)

Here are the specifics of my project.

  • Small Glass Jar w/Lid (Michael's - used a 40% coupon and it came out to $2.00)
  • Cartridge Used: Doodlecharms (Reindeer @ 3.00") & Elegant Edges (Lid Decoration @ 3.50")
  • Solid Cardstock: Bazzill (Classic Green & Classic Red)
  • Patterned Paper: Doodlebug (Christmas Kaleidiscope)
  • Fiskars Border Punch (Threading Water)
  • Glue Dots
  • Xyron Machine
  • Martha StewartGlitter: Garnet
  • Wobble Action Spring
  • White & Red Gel Pens
  • Red Rhinestones
  • Christmas Ribbon (My stash)
  • Chalks
  • Poem - From internet
I cut a 2 1/2" strip of 12 x 12 solid cardstock paper and used my border punch. Next I cut my pattern paper @ 1 3/4" from a 12 x 12 piece of paper and adhered it to my solid cardstock. I then used Glue Dots to adhere my paper to the glass and it worked perfectly. That way the glass jar can be re-used without ruining the glass jar. I used my Doodlecharms Cartridge for the image of Rudolph and used an Action Wobble...I just love the way it turned out. I found the poem online and printed it out on plain white cardstock and used a Red Gel Pen to stich around the edge. I then decorated the top of my lid and filled it with Red Colored Chocolate Candies. Ready for gift giving :0)
