First Day of Christmas: Christmas Candy Jar

On the first day of Christmas...Imaginisce gave to me...this darling Vintage Candy Jar filled with chocolate covered pretzels.
The jar I picked up from my local scrapbook store, I believe it's from Making Memories and I love that's really plastic and not glass. But you can recreate this same look for any jar of your choice.
Trim circles from assorted Polar Expressions papers. We cut a 4", 3 1/2", 3", 2 1/2" and 2" circles.
Spray each circle with Glimmer Mist from Tattered Angels. We used both brown and green colors to create our flower.
Crinkle circles up in hands and then unfold.
Gently roll the edges of the circle a bit and set aside to dry.

Once all pieces are dry, punch a hole through center. Using the iTop Tool, punch and small brad to create small (16mm) brad. Place iTop brad through center of circles and adhere to top of jar lid.

Punch out the chipboard piece you'd like to use and remove adhesive from back (by mounting to scrap piece of paper or carefully peeling adhesive layer from the back of the sticker). Spritz chipboard piece with Glimmer Mist and let dry.
Tie tulle and assorted ribbon around jar as shown. Punch hole through chipboard piece and secure to ribbon strip with jump ring and small safety pin. Fill jar with your favorite holiday treat!
