sweet tooth


I'm crossing another little thing off my extra-long list...candy jars for all the guys in Rich's family. (We had to nix the sharpening steel idea.)

The jars are from Target. They are the smallest of a graduated series of cracker jars they sell. I washed them in the dishwasher with extra hot water to sterilize them, dried them very well, and then filled them with the jolliest assortment of unwrapped candies I could find (also Target).

I created the labels using doodads from my dear friend Mo Jackson. A tie of a bow is all that's left...presto! Gift, done. Cost per jar filled with candy: ~$8.50

I saw those jars at Target and fell in love. I have 2 of the smallest now, and want more more more!

The candy is a great idea.

Happy holidays!
