Nuggets in a Jar

I had lots of nuggets with gold wrappers and NO idea what to do with. I had lots of silver nugget tins, but putting gold wrapped nuggets into a silver tin was out of the question for me, so I decided to try different packaging. I went and bought pint sized mason jars and placed the nuggets in the jar. I placed them carefully and deliberately so that all the labels were facing out.

I made a label for the jar and added a Heidi Swapp snowflake ghost shape. Some gold brads finished off the label. Then I stamped a snowflake on bashful blue card stock and punched it out with my scalloped punch. I added stickles to each "dot" on the snowflake and let it dry over night. The punched piece was added to the lid to cover the branding on the lid. The ribbon was not straight when I photographed this and it is driving me crazy, but I hope you will forgive the crooked ribbon and imagine it is straight. LOL
Ink: Colorbox chalk ink (navy)
Card stock: Papertrey white, bashful blue, night of navy
Accessories: May Arts polka dot organdy, stickles, gold brads, Heidi swapp ghost shape snowflake, Janome sewing machine, Hershey's nuggets, mason jar, address labels

I plan to use these for little gifts throughout the holiday season. I have already given one away to the LSS owner, Jean during the Christmas party. :)

Have a great day and happy stamping!

I am off to be scientific with my daughter, Bailey's 4th grade class. I am going to teach them about hydrophilic and hydrophobic substances and we will play with some cool stuff I bought from an online teacher resource site. :)

Diaper polymer:

and magic sand:

After my kids went to bed last night, my husband, brother and I played with all of it and it is REALLY cool. I had already worked with the two polymers last year with the girl's classes, so I needed to add something else this year. I think the magic sand will go over well. I was pretty amazed at it's properties!
