Sweet on You

I bought this super cute Candy Jar Die set from MFT for myself for Christmas.  I had some fun playing with it over the weekend.  I started by cutting the jar portion out of a piece of acetate and the top and base out of silver paper.  I also die cut the jar out of white card stock to help it stand out from the background a bit.  Then I had a moment of genius (at least I think it was!): I wanted to "fill" my jar with hershey kisses, so I crumpled up some tin foil and ran it through my die cutter with the "kisses" die and it is perfect!!  They look just like hershey kisses all wrapped up.  Sooooo Fun!!
 I used a bit of chocolate twine to "tie" my label onto the jar.  The scalloped oval was a recent addition to my bits and pieces stash; my paper slipped while I was die cutting it and flattened out one or two of the scallops.  But I covered it up with my bow and no one (except all of you) will ever know.

What an adorable idea to put Hershey Kisses in the jar. I love this and that yellow ribbon and bow are sweet as can be. I love yellow, pretty yellows (not the yellowish green tones) and this bow is beautifully done, too. Pretty card, Heather! Thanks for joining us at Craft-Dee BowZ for our February challenge! Hugs, Gail
