I love to make gifts for family and friends. One item that goes over nicely at Christmas time is cookie mixes in a jar. I will take a few hours one day to make up a huge batch of them. Once the jars are filled I decorate the out side of them to suit my mood. On this one in particular I used a stamped image that I colored last year for my Christmas cards. I had a few left. I also used a tag that I made last year from a die cut and old dictionary pages. I like to recycle paper whenever I can and the dictionary that I tore up has been used on a few dozen projects now. The vintage paper makes a great background for almost any project. The circle on the was a piece of left over scrap paper that I had stamped at some point in time. I really like using up all the bits and pieces that I have accumulated over the year.
