Pink Stamper Challenge - A gift for a Friend

Preserves Cartridge
Another Option - this one will be filled with instant hot cocoa!
The Pink Stamper had a wonderful challenge today.  Make something for someone and send it or give it to them.  Well, I love, love, love to recycle.  I had a bag full of these containers from "herb-ox" or store brand bullion cubes.  They are small containers but perfect for gift giving something small.  I used the perserves cartridge to make the lids @ 2 1/2".  Then wrapped paper around the body of the container, decorated it with ribbon and a label that says, "Just for You".  I added a bit of bling to the label, and a gingerbread girl button to the top.  I will fill these with M & M's or something similar, and give them away at Christmas time.  Perfect for that neighbor who stops by - the guy who plows the driveway - the mailman or the paper-person...A little something that says, "I care."   Hope you enjoy!

Filling those with cocoa is a great idea - that would be nice for a small gift for co-workers. I am always looking for inexpensive gifts for co-workers. Great job!!
