~Holiday Treat Ideas ♥Happy Saturday♥~

Good morning my amazingly talented crafty friends!

It is no secret I LOVE fall, and I especially
love the holiday season. Time for baking, giving, enjoying
parties, all the wonderful holiday goodies!

line of paper, I about died!!!!!!!!!!!!
I knew right away what I was going to do...
make COOKIE JARS!!!!!
Totally eco-friendly way to give holiday treats away.
Plus they can keep them all year long for a beautiful kitchen cookie jar!
Every year I bake cookies and treats with my boys, and we
deliver them to each neighbor on plates, but this year I thought
I would switch it up and make actual cookie jars.
I took old 1/2 gallon jars and I made labels that would be great for
any kitchen, ot even just to store away and bring out every Christmas.
Of course I used my handy dandy Glue Glider Pro, and Glue Arts
Ribbon Adhesive because they are made to last!
And you know I baked cookies just for this blog post too
hahaha!
I really did...hubs came home and said "Why are you on your feet baking??"
I replied "Honey I have a project in mind". He said "ohh ok" haha

I am thinking I will make several jars in all different lines of paper!
Maybe a video tutorial is in order? ♥

That's it for me today, I am off to teach my class in mt. Juliet!
~Happy Saturday everyone~
~THANK YOU every one who stops by~

Once again...without you I am nothing, you make it possible with
every visit for me to get great prizes and for companies to
take a second look at me, and I appreciate it!

Love it! Great job Pinky!!

I think giving food away is the best (and cheapest) way to go. Especially if you do it for neighbors. It is such a thoughtful thing to do. Maybe I will do that for my little apartment complex (6 units).

I absolutely adore this project and that paper is perfect for it!

Kelly Sas said...

I really like this idea. I too like to give homemade treats at Christmas, but hate doing the same old thing.... plates, tins I buy at the dollar store. This is wonderful!

Manhattan Mandie said...

LOVE the cookie jar idea! My brother is actually the baker in our family so I'm thinking I should make HIM a couple... one for him and one for him to fill and return :)

Have fun at your class today! Wish I were there!

Gloria said...

The cookies were yummy ;)

The jar is adorable in person too. I got there as she was putting the finishing touches on it.

I am doing the same thing this year for friends, family and neighbours. I am making up boxes of baked goodness. I love whipped shortbread and I make it with crushed candycane in it, plus will make some puppychow and nuts n bolts for the treat packages. I will have to "lift" this decorated bottle from you, Thanks for sharing Pinky. LOVE your ideas.

This is such a cute idea!!!! Besides the jar looking good...those cookies look very yummy!

Lori said...

I'm doing this this year also, except with cookie MIXES. 1)I'm generally lazy and the idea of baking cookies for 20 families does not entice me. 2)They can choose when to have the cookies if I bring a mix; I HATE stale cookies! I really like this particular paper line you used... think I'm gonna have to go hunt some up!
