Wrapped in Christmas Giftable Bon Bon Jar


Just a quick project from me today! I've decorated these mason like jars and have filled them with strawberry bon bons!

If you live in the UK, I got these jars from Home Bargains from the Wedding section. They were a bargain at 35p each.

I made a similar version last year and gifted these enclosed within a milk carton style box. I also included these jars in the Christmas Eve box I made for my family who were staying over last Christmas. 


Okay so I may not have any children but doesn't mean I can't make a Christmas Eve box! I decorated a Gift Box and added silver shredded paper inside and filled it with bits and pieces for myself, my husband and for my mum and my brother who were staying with us. 

Inside were mini wooden logic puzzle games, the Big Night In game for us all to play, handmade mini Christmas albums and edible treats! In addition to these bon bon filled jars and I also included a variety of chocolates from a Christmas Mystery box I bought from this fab business called Maple Molly's. 

I've supported Maple Molly's for over 11 years now as they made the fortune cookies for our Wedding in Mauritius in 2009 and I have repeatedly ordered from them every year for a number of occasions - birthdays, valentines, anniversaries, baby showers, Christmas parties and team thank you gifts. 

They were a tiny business when I first used them and it is truly wonderful to see how much they have grown, especially during this pandemic. Thankfully I managed to get my order in just in time as they had to stop taking orders due to the volumes - I'll share the pictures when they arrive mid December and will try to incorporate some into a project!

If you live in the UK, you must check out their website , Facebook page and Instagram - their chocolates are lush and they have a huge range of items.


Back to my project - to create the decoration I used the Wrapped in Christmas stamp set from Stampin' Up! I stamped the image in Blushing Bride ink and die cut it using the Layering Circles dies, adding a scalloped circle underneath in Blushing Bride. The twine is now retired but suits this project perfectly.

Unfortunately my husband caught sight of the left over bon bons and they were gone in a flash. So more will be added to my shopping list!
