Valentine Cookie Jar

Hi everyone! Today I have a mini cookie jar to show you.

I bought a set of these Ball brand jars at the grocery store (Giant)...four jars for $4.29. Hey, that's just a little over $1 a jar!! I decorated all four of them so my youngest daughter can give them out. The stamp is from the SASI Love is Sweet set. The Enchanting DP and gingham ribbon are also from Taylored Expressions. The jars are filled with heart-shaped sugar cookies.



I cut a piece of 1.5" x 12" textured red CS, wrapped it around the jar, and taped the edges down with sticky tape. The edges didn't quite meet so I punched out a scallop circle from the DP and layered that over the red CS. Next, I wrapped some of the red gingham ribbon around the entire jar. The last step was to add the stamped candy box from the Love is Sweet set, which is popped up on Dimensionals.

For the top o f the jar, I cut out a circle in the DP with one of my circle Spellbinders dies and then added a second candy box. This candy box is also up on Dimensionals.



I made the jar to go with a card I made last month. Here's the set.



Thanks for stopping by and have an awesome day!
