"Candy Jar Treat"

I got the inspiration for this treat from gal pal, Rochelle's, April 24th post of Spice Jar Gifts, click HERE to check out. Since I do not have SU's Tart & Tangy stamp set yet, I decided to use my strawberry stamp set from Papertrey, that I just love!

I used a plastic container, that I buy in bulk of 6 from Oriental Trade and are similar to Rochelle's spice jars, and filled with strawberry candies. I then used a Marvy circle scallop punch for the red cardstock and adhered it to the lid. I stamped the strawberry image onto white cardstock before punching out with a circle Whale of a Punch, and adhered it on top of the red, as well. Lastly, I tied sheer red dotted Offray ribbon around the neck.

I went and visited an dear friend of mine yesterday, that I had not seen in awhile, and took her this treat. I added a little note that said, "Love You Berry Much". It was so good to see her, and she was tickled to get a surprise treat, too!

JoAnna, how cute is your jar. I love the strawberry stamp and the strawberry candy. Super cute. I have one jar left out of the four. Why didn't I do the strawberry in the set? Man, I am a dork. I am so going to do the strawberry. Thanks for waking me up. LOL
