Sometimes you just have to get a project done. The creative time that you had planned to put into it just seems to have disappeared. That is the case with some jar cookies that I planned to make up for my daughters teachers. I had visions of this amazing jar topper and tag combo but I just didn’t get it out of my head in time and now the clock is ticking.
So with the jars filled and ready to be gifted I leaned on the little Rudolf punch art that I picked off of Pinterest a few weeks back. He just makes me smile. I think I’ve made about 15 of them now. I probably should create a bunch just to have on hand. He has come in hand for so many little package embellishments as I get ready for the holidays. And again he comes to the rescue.
I told you he was cute!
The layered cookie recipe comes from a blog I follow – Simply Stampin. I have created these jars a few times now but I’ve never actually tried the recipe. No one has complained yet, but then again I’m not sure they would tell me!
Here is the recipe – cookie tags
Hope this “completely copied” project inspire you!
(By the way, my lesson learned. 1 standard size bag of M&M’s is only about 1.5 cups. So for every three jars you need two bags of M&M’s. This surprised me and resulted a trip back to the store!)
