A Christmas Story

Hi everyone
~Happy Day To You~
This is Stacy from Love That Bug. I am so honored to back over at Sheila's today to share a super quick and easy gift idea with all of you. This is a recycled jar that I turned into the cutest little gift for someone. It is full of M & M's and seems appropriate for this time of year. It is a little story about the birth of Jesus Christ seen from candy!
To decorate the jar, I just wrapped a piece of card stock around it, and punched out a scallop shape for the front. I used the computer to print the "To and From". For the tag, again, I just printed the story and tied it to the jar with ribbon, then filled the jar with the M & M candies.


Here is the story: (click pic for better view)

Super easy, super cute and super meaningful! I hope you all enjoy and had a very Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year,
Many hugs,
Stacy

What a sweet story and great idea to have for guests at Christmas time....we just have a jar of MMs at parties and have people guess how many they are ...the closest without going over wins...but your story is meaningful! TFS
