Sweet Treats!

I can tell you now, this new Something Sweet set from JustRite is going to be one of my favorites this Christmas season!

I used it to make this Sweet Treats jar for the grands to give a favorite Sunday School teacher...or maybe the family next door! We have SO many gifts to prepare for them, and they always like to help with the making!

I found this jar at Wal Mart for $2 or $3. You can probably find one cheaper at a dollar store somewhere. The green hard candies inside the jar were $1 at Wal Mart, and there were enough to fill at least two jars! What a deal!

For the top of the candy jar I used the new Holiday Demi Phrases for the top of the sentiment, then used the 15 pt font that comes with my 2" Wood Stamper to write *From The Rodgers*.

The candies on the top were cut out from the Sweet Treats center, colored with Tombow Markers and adhered to the panel on the top. The white accents on the candies were made with a White Opaque Pen .

The rest of The Dream Team has projects for you all week! I hope you will check them out! Here is the schedule:

Tuesday: Laurie , Charmaine , Amy , and Me.

Wednesday: Laurie , Tosha , Kimberly and Me.

Thursday: Kimberly , Denise and Me.

Friday: Cammie , Amy , Kimberly and Me.

Thanks for stopping by....I will be back tomorrow. Until then...
