Donny Candy Jar...



Good morning all!  I hope the week has been treating you well so far.  Well the snow is here to stay. I've got my winter snow tires on the car,  mittens and scarf in my bag, boots to shovel the driveway... hmmm, what's missing??  Oh yes:  Christmas lights!!!  If the weekend weather is decent, I want to decorated the front of our house with wonderful Christmas lights.  Oh how I love Christmas.


StampFairy is sponsoring ABC Christmas Challenge for the next two week challenge of Winter Sports.  I used uber cute Donny Ice Skating for my tag:
Candy Jar Ingredients: StampFairy digi;  American Crafts papers;  Recollections cardstock;  Copics;  Gelly Roll white pen;  Oval and Scalloped Oval Nesties;  Celebrate It ribbon;  Dress It Up button;  snowflake tree ornament; hemp twine; recycle jar and fabric.

I used an old jar that I found in my cupboard (the coffee inside expired in 2008, not sure why I was hanging on to it!).  I filled it with Hershey's Milk Chocolate and Candy Cane Kisses (which were brand new, not expired heehee).


I also found a purse storage bag I had tucked away in my craft room and used that for the fabric on top.


I made this candy jar for the following challenges:  LESSology - Jars of Cuteness;  The Pink Elephant - gift tags;  Simon Says Stamp & Show - upcycle/recycle;  Wee Memories - handmade gift, tags, or boxes.

With that said, I must go battle the snow and drive to work - have a great day!
