This year, hubby's family is making gifts for everyone....so I made everyone some glittered ornaments as shown in a previous post here: Glittered Ornaments. I was also looking for another project and came across an idea in the November/December 2011 of Paper Crafts....On the cover they had a mason jar candle holder. Using that basic set up, I tweaked it a little.
Starting with a mason jar, I found a votive holder that would sit in the mouth of the jar. Then, I made bands to wrap around the jar out of paper. I cut a vintage Christmas greeting out of Graphic 45 paper. I finished the jar up by wrapping twine around the lip, tying a bow, and adhering a poinsettia on top of the bow. I made 4 of these and filled them with different treats for the family....
