GCD: Mason Treat Jars

I'm up over on the GCD Studios blog... you can check it out here.

Today I am going to help ya out with some fun holiday ideas to use those Mason jars that you have laying around at your house.

I know I am always needing some kind of quick gift to hand out, whether for friends, neighbors, the kids friends, anyone. So I came up with some fun ideas to get those Mason jars working for you.

Here is the final product:

I went into my kitchen and grabbed some Mason Jars and filled a few of them up with goodies:

Cookie Jar:
This first jar is a great idea for those neighbors or family or friends who have everything, or love to bake. Creating your own cookie in a jar. I grabbed a fun recipe online to use HERE. (in my jar I actually used peanut butter M&Ms and added in some mini chocolate chips).

Here is the decorated version of the jar:
Just create a quick tag with the recipe:
and don't forget to embellish the top:

Next up, we have a fun treat jar for someone you love, and care about. Fill it up with Kisses. These are great to send of with the husband for his work desk, or maybe your child to keep in their locker at school, when they need a quick treat, and are wonderful grandparent gifts.
Send them a fun message on the top:

Here is a fun idea for your kids to give out to their friends, and can be a low cost gift. Or maybe, for your own BFF, just a little something to say thanks for being the BEST!!! I filled it up with fun snacks, that are low in calories (well, lower than chocolate... LOL)
And can't leave off the bling:
And last, even though it's not a "treat" gift, here is a great Mason jar present for those celebrating Christmas. I hit Target and grabbed a cheap pack of white Christmas lights and created this:
And topped it off with some festive ribbon and a star:

So how will you decorate your Mason jars?? What treats will you add inside?
