Candy Tree gift jar

Happy Saturday! Yesterday after the kids were out of school we went and picked our Christmas tree out and decorated into the evening. I always forget how much work is involved in setting the tree up, cleaning everything, decorating and cleaing some more. Sure is a joy though and the twins love it.  
I made several of these darling little Christmas tags using Henry Mouse holding Christmas tree from Whiff Of Joy Stamps. He is so stinkin adorable I just love it. This makes for quick and easy little gifts for some neighbors just as a simple gesture for the season. I stamped Henry onto classic white cardstock using memento tuxedo black ink. He is colored with various copic markers. I die cut him out using Spellbinders classic circles on a few layers. Added some sheer olive green ribbon and silver cord that I tied my bells to. The felt snowflake I cut in half and added some rhinestones to the ends. The light string is a necklace that I wrapped aroud the tree layers for some lights, very fun and easy to do. Voila a little treat jar with thin mints inside. YUMO!!!  Hope you have a wonderful day!

LOL...Now this is very clever using your necklace like this...make me reminisce with this cutie pie image. I have to stop buying those chocolates to "give away" as somehow they never make it to the recipient, and I am about to go into a chocolate coma!
