Christmas Sweetie Jars


Today I would like to show you these altered jars I've made for my boys to take to school.  They are having a Christmas Fayre and have asked for some filled, decorated jars for a Jar Tombola. 

I used this cute little Tilda from last year's Magnolia Christmas Collection, she is still one of my favourites!!!  I decided to use traditional reds and greens for a classic christmas look.    I've filled the jars with some Mint Imperials - I think they look a little bit like mini snowballs !!!  

I'm entering these jars into the following challenges.

Lexi's Creations - Anything Goes
Sir Stampalot Challenge - Christmas Traditions
Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge - Classic Christmas
The Paper Players - Anthing Goes
Top Tip Tuesday - Christmas Inspired


Stamp: All Wrapped Up Tilda from Magnolia
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Colouring Medium: Copic Markers
Papers: From my stash
Ribbon: From my stash
Flower: From my stash
Jars: Clean Empty Coffee Jars

Thanks for stopping by today.  Hope you like them.
