Red is Still In! Weekend Project

Yup, red is still the "in" color for the season. It seems that Christmas we have the red and the green. Then after Christmas we keep the red until Valentine's Day and we don't need the green again until the next month for St. Patrick's Day! And after that it's all the fun pastels of spring! For us here in Minnesota it's like bringing color back into our lives. We see white here for at least 4 to 5 month out of the year and sometimes longer depending on how soon the first lasting snows came.

This is a fun little jar project. I ran across this jar in the cupboard. Yup, I'm still digging in cupboards. Not too deeply though, I already did that this month!! This jar measures 2-1/2" tall by 2-1/2" in diameter at the bottom tapering to 2" across at the top.

I filled it with some fun Valentine's Day candy (anything red will do) and I tied a bow on it. Then I stamped some hearts from the new Stampin' Up! "I (Heart) Hearts" set. I punched them out using the "Heart to Heart" punch. I taped them in place on the little jar. I wanted to add a little something to the top of the jar so I punched a red circle scallop and a white 1-3/8" circle. I taped them together and added another heart on the top of that. I taped that in place on top of the jar. It was just what that space needed. This was a quick little project and now I'm off to find more jars! I have a bunch out in the garage (not like this one but from baby food, etc.) and I am going to have a bit of fun decorating them! Hubby will be glad when I clean out some of my overflow from the garage! I have stuff everywhere!!

These make a wonderful Teacher's gift, Hostess Appreciation gift, Customer Appreciation gift, Make n Takes, Craft Fair items and Stamp Camp items or any other event you can think of for this project!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
