'Twiz the Season Treat Jar (Little Yellow Bicycle Once Upon a Christmas)


'Twiz the season for gift giving (and to be jolly) so I'm here today to share a super cute gift idea using Little Yellow Bicycle's Once Upon a Christmas collection. I transformed a plain glass jar with a metal lid into a super cute gift idea featuring Twizzlers red licorice sticks. 

To create a topper for the existing lid, I traced a dinner plate (my "go to" circle template) onto a 12x12" sheet of patterned paper, making sure the diameter (of the plate) was a couple of inches larger than the lid. I used scalloped scissors to cut the circle out because I wanted it to have a decorative edge. I centered the circle on the lid and then used my hands to form it to the lid, allowing pleats to happen naturally. The paper lid sits very nicely atop the jar, but can be easily removed (and keep its shape) when you want to open the jar to grab a little treat.


For the front of the jar, I used a journaling card to hold the sentiment and added in a few embellishments.


This is what the jar looks like from the top:


I think it looks fun and festive and would certainly make a great (and easy) gift for a neighbor, teacher or friend. What's your favorite holiday treat to gift?

  14. Cannolis I guess:) Wish we have twizzlers here in Sicily. I see that you worked in a bakery shop. That's where my daughter www.hungrycaramella.blogspot.com would love to work. I grew up in New York so I love to make brownies, apple pie, cinnamon rolls etc. and she grew up eating them so she loves American sweets. A friend recently sent us candy corn for Halloween, when Sicilian kids came for "dolcetto o scherzetto" (trick or treat) they were delighted to get American candy. I am following you. I will tell my daughter to follow you too.Happy Thanksgiving!
