12/6 Scentsational Season Jar

 

A couple of days ago, we had our Stamping to Share Downline Christmas party for all the demos in my group who are local to me. Our gift exchange was to decorate a jar or a tin with Stampin' Up! and then put something fun in it. I did a hot chocolate station . . . everything you need except the cup of hot water in a pretty decorated jar. Inside . . . 12 packets packets of cocoa, twelve decorated bags of marshmallows (with 12 mini marshmallows in each bag) and a container of chocolate dipped Peppermint Poles for stirring up the cocoa mixture.


I used the Scentsational Season stamp set with the coordinating framelits. The tag was created with a 2 1/2" vanilla circle on a Delicate Doily Sizzlit Die. The designer paper is from Be of Good Cheer and the bow was made from the fabulous 7/8" Natural Cotton that you can find in the Holiday Mini.


The jar top is decorated, too! A floral framelit cutout created from the same patterned paper to coordinate with the rest of the jar.

I'll be sharing the jars my downline decorated in the next couple of days so stay tuned for more inspiration! Have a great day and thank you for stopping by Stamping to Share!

Hello,
Where did you buy the small bags of marshmallows?
Thank You

I used small plastic bags and decorated them with a bow to make the marshmallow bags. I didn't buy them!!

I use vellum for the steam and cut a slice in the beverage and insert the bottom. You can then see the back of the cup and the steam looks realistic coming from the coffee.
